The reason he didn't display this though was because he only does it to the top ranked players, Tsonga isn't one yet, but he shall be one day.
I dont get why people still make a big deal about the ball bouncing thing, when it is clearly a natural reaction he does in response to critical junctures of a match. He only does it in situations where his serve is critical, which basically signals that its a strategy he takes to calm/focus himself. The longer a match drags on, the more often he starts bouncing the ball on his serve. He only does it against the top ranked players because he rarely has a hard time disposing of anyone else (he can pretty much just play and win without putting in much thought).
