    I think the Aces/DFs numbers mean something here. Tsonga’s returning has improved, but not to a level where Fed only manages 6 aces over a 5-set match. His service is also traditionally good, but typically doesn’t have 3x Fed’s ace count (unless it is a super-fast court like the O2). I have this recollection about their ace counts being even statistically.

    It was a tough match and Tsonga was certainly the better player. Federer basically managed the match very well despite something being a bit off, much like Djokovic the other day. That’s why they are who they are, I suppose.
