Tsonga's record against Top 10 ranked opponents is horrendous this season, its actually the worst of the top 20. Him, Cilic and Dolgopolov all have just 1 win when faced with a player ranked in the top 10 however Tsonga is 1-14 whereas the other 2 are 1-7.
On winning DC and its overall importance in the discussion for all-time greats

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
It´s interesting that some players often implodes and others don´t. I remember Hewitt-Roddick 6-3,6-2(Houston 2004 if I remember correctly) when Roddick had 2-1 in second set and suddenly
he lost the match with loosing every single point from there! I couldnt believe what I saw.
