Jo-Wilfried Tsonga Is Out Of The French Open
by Tom Gainey | May 14th, 2018, 11:03 am

For the first time since 2008, home favorite Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will miss the French Open. The 2-time semifinalist at Roland Garros has withdrawn due to his left knee.

The 33-year-old Tsonga underwent surgery on that left knee on April 3 and hasn’t played since retiring in the semifinals of Marseille in February.

“I’m obviously very disappointed, but I still want to come to Lyon as an ambassador and to Roland Garros as a spectator,” Tsonga said.

It will also be the first Grand Slam Tsonga will miss since the 2015 Australian Open. He also withdrew from his title defense in Lyon next week.

RZ Says:

Beginning of the end for Tsonga? :-(

Humble Rafa Says:

US just legalized sports betting. If you are a certain someone whose rear end hurts because you are sitting out the clay court and you want to follow your passion, you can now bet on tennis legally.

My good friend Davydenko has retired and has entered the business of producing babies (3 and counting). This is the day he wanted to see.

The Arrogant God Says:

Hello! This looks like an interesting place. Welcome to me.

The Arrogant Goat Says:

The Arrogant God has been in moderation for so long that I have changed my mind. I want a new name that is more fitting and a lot more modest (don’t want to use humble since there is already one schizo here using it). So, that is what I should be addressed “The Arrogant Goat”. I’m ready to chew.
