He does not bully the ball around the court like Tsonga does (not taking away from Jo's game at all). It's not "pushing" if your opponent is constantly on the defensive.
Seconded, and I don't even care for his play (respect it a lot though).

I want to see Tsonga with Fed's blx 6.1 90 and string setup. I think Tsonga could be the bigger, stronger, faster Federer. (I don't really, but similar. stronger but with less elegance and fluidity of movement)
