Tsonga's net game is not overrated, his volleys are quite good but the problem is that his approach shots are some of the worst ones you would see in a pro.
Roger's BH has actually become more solid to play rallies than it used to be, consistently speaking it is better now than it was before because he's not aiming to hit winners off it all the time like he did on his peak, right now he's more patient and uses his best BH shots (slices & angular CC) to set up his FH or volleys and finish the point.
Is it the best one handed BH? no way, it's just that the rest of his game is still so good (and it was better at his peak) that he made up for that weak wing against everyone except for Rafa on clay (consistently speaking).
Rafa's BH has never been overrated either IMO, it was always a means to an end but his main weapon has always been the FH as well, most of his winners come off that shot, the BH is to set up rallies.
Fact is the approach shot is a vital component of your "net game". Knowing when to come in and how to come in is as important as the quality of the volleys themselves. Tsonga has a great volley which he can abuse at times like a lot of players. His punch volleys are decent but nothing out of the ordinary.
