Re: Sydney QF: Nieminen def. Tsonga by W.O.
There's an interview of Tsonga (with audio even!) on his website where he says he doesn't know if he'll be able to play in Australia, because his back has seized up and he can't even run at the moment. He's hoping he will be able to move again before next week.
But yeah, you're right, that's just disgraceful. He should have crawled to the court, maybe that way he could miss all the slams this year, not just 2 1/2. Less than a week before the only slam were he was 100 % last year and where he has half his point for the season to defend. THAT'd be the smart thing to do.
