Or the fitness.
His fitness is so much worse than the fitness of the top 4.

Nope, slow courts mean he'll get drawn into more long rallies, which will expose his BH weaknesses. And yes, wind is a factor too.

Tsonga is at his best when first strike tennis is rewarded, and indoors is the best chance for that these days, even if they're not particularly fast.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary

This doesn't make any sense. I've never seen Tsonga play more conservatively/ consistently. And how is he making so many returns of Berdych's serve indoors, when the last time they played on a presumably slower court he couldn't make any really

If you saw the game Tsonga broke in like two games ago, he was most def not playing first strike tennis, he wait 5-6 strokes to go for winner or let Berdych make the error.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary

From 4-2, Tsonga is serving to stay in the set 4*-5

Berd is ballbashing to perfection
