Tsonga dubs rivals Murray, Djokovic `extra terrestrials` for impossible `serve-returning` powersLondon: French tennis ace Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has dubbed World No.2 Andy Murray as an ` extra terrestrial` for his ability to read the serves of his opponents, ahead of the Wimbledon.

Murray beat the big-serving Frenchman on his way to winning the Aegon Championship on Sunday.

Stating that Murray will have extra powers to help him in the Wimbledon, Tsonga said that the US Open and Olympic champion, along with World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, delivers the best returns in the world, adding that the duo are extra-terrestrials and makes one feel that the service box is smaller.

Tsonga further said that that the unlike with other players, the longer a match goes on against either Murray or Djokovic, the more he feels that the duo knows where the opposing player will be serving his next move, which makes the player make the mistake of forcing things and thus miss the first service.

Meanwhile, the Scot faces the nightmare prospect of needing to beat Djokovic, world No 3 Roger Federer and world No 5 Rafael Nadal to win Wimbledon, although he said that it is necessary to beat the biggest players in the world to win the biggest tournaments, adding that a player cannot get too obsessed about the draw.
