Focus not very accurate with single AF

Hi all,

I recently purchased a 135 f2 L lens and so far it is an amazing piece of kit. I mainly used the lens with AI servo with 4 helping cross type points and that works amazingly well. But I started using it more and more with Single AF and noticed a weird behavior, my 5D 3 tends to front focus then...

Why is that, is it common with fast lenses when used wide open? Is there less accuracy?
