Tsonga is OK and hungry

Tsonga says he will take part in the tournament.

For those who read French, here it is :

http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/breves2...a-sera-la.html

he says he feels better and he's "hungry"

he says that it's usual for him playing tournaments with injuries.

he says that in Paris-Bercy, it was "near to the limit" (in the beginning of his match against Roddick, I had the impression that he didn't withdraw only to please the spectators),
in Bangkok he had problems with his back and his knee was inflated,
in the US Open he felt also bad.

He says he plays more relaxed when he's injured

He also says he likes the heat, since his ball goes quicker.

He thanks the organizers for allowing him to play on tuesday evening.

However, he says Monaco is a tough opponent, and he just hopes going through that 1st round : if he reaches the 2nd week, he and his coach hope he can play freely.

useless old guy

Re: Tsonga is OK and hungry

It's interesting to see he has a night match. I would assume it is on Hisense with the Hewitt match on Rod Laver night session. Maybe Hewitt will play in the day though?

c'mon Tsonga bring the Tsunami back to Australia...show them that you're not a one hit slam finalist wonder.

Re: Tsonga is OK and hungry

Glad to see he's got appetite, I just hope he won't eat too much during the matches.

So was he faking injury in Sydney?
