Jo-Wilfried Tsonga injures finger in surprise Queen's defeat

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is a doubt for Wimbledon after he suffered a suspected broken finger in his surprise defeat by Ivan Dodig at the Aegon Championships.
Tsonga lost 7-6 (7-3) 3-6 7-6 (7-5) to the Croatian, a debutant at Queen's Club, to become the latest seed to make an early exit, following Andy Murray.

The second seed jarred his finger after slipping in the the third set.
"I think it's serious," said Tsonga. "I'll have a scan but it sounds bad. I felt like I broke or strained it."
World number five Tsonga, a semi-finalist at Wimbledon last year, was far from his best even before injury, although he did improve considerably in the second set, twice breaking the Croatian's serve to level the match
Hugely disappointed if it is the case. Allez!

He doesn't know if it's a break. It could be a sprain.

maybe if he didn't dick around on the court for the entire match he wouldn't of put himself in this situation. Played this like he was Monfils.

He fell awkwardly and the finger was trapped under the racquet from what I could see

Daily Mail: Tsonga may have a broken finger, Wimbledon in doubt

Tsonga doubtful for Wimbledon after breaking finger in shock Queen's defeat
Quote:
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is a doubt for Wimbledon after he suffered a suspected broken finger during his shock defeat to Ivan Dodig at the AEGON Championships on Thursday.

The world No 5, who made the last four at SW19 last year, bowed out of the Wimbledon warm-up competition at Queen's today with a 6-7 (3/7) 6-3 6-7 (5/7) loss to world No 69 Dodig.

His disappointment was furthered by the news that he may have broken the little finger on his right hand after slipping in the sixth game of the third set.

'I think it's serious,' said Tsonga, who had his hand placed in an ice-bag during his post-match press conference.

'I will have a scan, but it sounds very bad.

'I felt like I broke something or I strained it when I fell.

'It's only a finger but it's tough because I have to play with my hand.

'At the moment I don't know what is it, but I will stay positive and I will see.'


Tsonga, who reached a career-best quarter-final placing at the French Open earlier this month, was expected to win this tournament after Andy Murray's exit, but Dodig showed remarkable composure to clinch the game and set up a quarter-final meeting with 2010 champion Sam Querrey.

Tsonga's draining French Open campaign looked to have had an effect on him as the second seed moved sluggishly around the court and failed to strike the ball with his customary power and finesse.

The world No 5 five, semi-finalist at Wimbledon last year, also suffered an injury to a finger on his right hand during the disappointing defeat on centre court.

Tsonga started off slowly but earned a break point when Dodig double-faulted during a nervy first service game. The Croatian denied his opponent, however, forcing him on to the backfoot with a good serve and Tsonga went long with a backhand.

Tsonga fired down two consecutive aces in the following game but was still clearly not at his best.

The second seed struggled to get around the court and handed Dodig a break point in the 10th game, but the big Frenchman rescued himself with a thundering ace.

Dodig raced into a 4-0 lead on the tie break after breaking Tsonga's serve twice and, despite a brief comeback, the world No 69 sealed the set by breaking again.

Tsonga smiled, knowing he fully deserved to be behind, and immediately set about equalling the match in the second set.

He took Dodig's first service game to deuce before losing and the Frenchman seemed in much more confident mood than during the first set.

Errors started to creep in to Dodig's game and Tsonga took full advantage, forcing his opponent to find the net and move a break up.

Tsonga then hit a meaty cross-court backhand to break Dodig again and clinch the set in quick time.

Tsonga's game continued to improve but Dodig kept his composure to start the third set comfortably despite a barrage of power strokes from last year's finalist.

Tsonga jarred his little finger after slipping in the sixth game, but the injury did not prevent him from earning three break points.

Dodig remained calm however, and forced down three powerful serves that left his opponent groaning with dismay.

Dodig thought his chance to win the match had gone when he spurned a break point at 5-5, but he got another opportunity in the tie-break and took it, forcing Tsonga on the backfoot and he cleared the baseline under pressure to allow Dodig to record a shock victory.

Aw, come on. I blame MTF for this. So many people going on about him having a great grass season... I hope he's OK for Wimbs...

He tweeted this: "Je rentre à la maison demain pour faire des exams! Je croise les doigts pour que ça ne soit pas grave et que je puisse disputer Wimbledon."

Translation: #I'll go back home tomorrow to make some scans. I really hope it's nothing serious and I can play Wimbledon."

Please let it be nothing serious. No tournament is the same without Ali.

Why go back home for scans. Do them in London. Surely it can be done quicker there and he'll for certain... Don't carry your bags, Jo .

Poor guy! A broken finger is dire. And he was so optimistic about doing well at Wimbledon. I hope it isn’t broken but any injury to the fingers is bad. I remember Rafa burning his fingers on his right hand.

He managed to finish the match and was still hitting his shots normally, so it can't be that bad. Right?

Yes because the draw fixers will always avoid putting Tsonga with RN and ND or else he might win on his best surface as he was so close to doing so on his worst .
