Tsonga has done amazingly well for himself. From being a well overweight guy who struggled to crack the top 100 and be relevant to being a top 5 player in the world with that backhand speaks volumes about how much stride hes made, and theres no guarantee that the weight loss will win a slam, he might just not be good enough.

But shedding pounds and changing his diet would definitely help Jo Willy to not get hurt as much as he does and it would have made a difference in Paris this year for sure.
Wilfred is 27,this is about your maximum peak!Dont think Tsonga can shed that much wait,if he did it wouldnt be much cos you cant over do it!Things are working for him just fine,maybe abit more fitness and it will be the difference from make to break!I think Wilfred's main problem is the attacking backhand,if he could improve on that then all the pieces adds up with big serve,movement,volley!He would love to have a Joker/Nadal/Murray/ backhand!
