Jo Wilfried Tsonga: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at 2009 Australian Open, Me...

What he said:

"He plays incredible tennis, but he’s not an alien.”

Jo Wilfried Tsonga is convinced that Novak Djokovic is not an extra-terrestrial despite playing extraordinary  tennis this year. Tsonga adds: “In fact, what he does is doing everything better than the others. He doesn’t hit harder, he doesn’t hit the ball earlier. But he’s always there. This is tiring when you play against him. He does not have the best return on the tour. But on every return, he returns well, and he’s always there. So what does it is his consistency, and he has no weaknesses."

What he really meant:

“If Novak’s an alien, then so are the rest of us. It’s just that he does it over a longer period.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Djokovic’s alienated.”
