Before the masses of tennis fans unleash doubts on this Roger Federer performance and debate possible retirement, let's assess the qualities of Tsonga's talented background.Tsonga rose to fame by virtue of his performance in the 2008 Australian Open when, as an unseeded player, he reached the final, having defeated four seeded players along the way, including earning a straight sets win over the then world number 2 Rafael Nadal in the semifinals. Tsonga eventually lost to world number 3 Novak Djokovic in the final in 4 sets, after winning the first set the only set Djokovic dropped during the tournament. The very likeable Tsonga is no pushover and has been known for many five set thrillers. This important fact should have been fundamental with Roger in closing this match out clinically and somehow I feel this fact eluded him on this occasion. This was much like the first set against Nadal at the French this year.I hope he continues in the knowledge that even with the amazing seventeen Grand Slams in the bank, people and generations ahead only remember number ones first. It would be great to see more slams in the bag for Roger Federer. Continuing best wishes.

To begin with, Federer has won 16 GS, not 17. He will probably never win another. When you can't hold a 5-2 set lead, or a 2-0 sets lead in a best of 5, you're in trouble.
And trying to justify losing to Tsonga by making him sound like a top 5 player (when he's not even in the top ten) is just making excuses. Federer was the world #1 for 4 years. His skills are slipping away, and he's not the dominant player he was a couple of years ago. His time has passed.
