And Tsonga has lost to Isner, Dolgopolov, Simon and Haas this year on clay. Perhaps you try to pick a better example.
How can Monaco be playing better when he got bounced in the first round of Australian Open this year?
Nobody cares if Monaco is playing well in garbage useless small clay tournaments. What matters is how you perform in the Slams. And Monaco on average is eliminated in the Slams most of the time by the 2nd round. A lot of the time gone in the 1st round.
