Tsonga says he will take part in the tournament.
For those who read French, here it is :
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.
