Our expert Mats Wilander said Jo-Wilfried Tsonga made a big mistake which contributed to his defeat to Novak Djokovic at the French Open on Sunday.

Tsonga's match against the Serb started in front of a half-empty stadium as it followed Ernests Gulbis' shock win over Roger Federer, with lots of the fans inside court Philippe Chatrier opting to take a break from the tennis on offer.

That meant the Frenchman was a bit flat, losing some of his home advantage, and it was the same story at the French Open last year too as he followed a Djokovic-Nadal epic semi-final by losing to David Ferrer.

Mats says Tsonga should have more influence with the schedulers at Roland Garros.

Eugenie Bouchard, who reached her first quarter-final at Roland Garros by crushing Angelique Kerber, also joined Barbara Schett in the studio for a chat about her game and facing the media.

And finally, Mats reviewed Maria Sharapova's win over Samantha Stosur.
