Krajicek had an excellent return, Tsonga has one of the worst returns of a top player I can remember. Horrendous shot. Exhibit a. should be the Murray SF at Wimbledon where he couldn't get a 75mph serve return over the net.
And yes, a "slow court mug" like Pioline, who won Monte Carlo and was runner-up twice, wouldn't stand a chance.
