I actually Tsonga is more talented but he's not a better player because (a) he lost all his formative years due to injuries (explaining for instance his backhand woes) and (b) he was born a few years too late, his all-out attacking game wasn't made for homogenised surfaces..
GOAT response. You are like a politician!
But Murray is better than Del Potro.
