Re: Tsonga withdraws from Sydney

Hopefully it's more a precaution not to aggravate it further than something serious.

What's with all the withdrawals?

Seriously Tsonga get it together. Whatever the reason was..that's just disgraceful.

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.

Re: Sydney QF: Nieminen def. Tsonga by W.O.

«Je me suis décidé dans l'après-midi parce que j'avais vraiment trop mal. Je ne pouvais pas jouer. Mon physio a tout tenté hier, tout comme celui de l'ATP ainsi que le médecin mais ils m'ont dit que ce serait trop dur de jouer dans ces conditions. J'espère juste que je pourrais disputer l'Open d'Australie mais je ne le sais pas encore. Je ne peux absolument rien faire pendant les deux prochains jours. Je vais peut-être rester au fond de mon lit en espérant que ça s'arrange», a expliqué le Tricolore, finaliste à Melbourne la saison passée.

from lequipe.fr


Basically he says he doesn't know yet if he can play the AO but he hopes so. There's nothing he can do the next two days. Probably he'll just stay in bed and hope it gets better.
