Re: Get well soon Jojo!!

He is still hoping to be back for Beijing, although everybody says he won't.
Quote:
Tsonga, les Jeux en tête
OPÉRÉ DU MÉNISQUE DROIT le 27 mai dernier, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga a commencé la rééducation depuis une dizaine de jours. Elle sera longue et se fera pianissimo. Pour le moment, le travail se passe en piscine. « Tout va bien jusqu’ici, explique le finaliste du dernier Open d’Australie. Mon genou répond bien, il n’y a aucune complication. Normalement, je serai autorisé à recourir la semaine prochaine. » Le timing de reprise se précise : Tsonga pourrait retrouver le circuit à New Haven à partir du 17 août et sa présence à l’US Open, la semaine suivante, paraît probable. Mais il devrait faire une croix sur le tournoi olympique (10-17 août). C’est ce que tout le monde pense sauf… lui. « Moi, j’ai toujours les Jeux dans un coin de ma tête, dit-il. Je crois que c’est possible d’être prêt pour Pékin. » – F. Be.
He’s been doing some rehab in water fro 10 days and everything goes well. No problems with his knee so far. He should be able to run again next week.
The schedule according to everybody should be: comeback in New Heaven and then the US Open.
But Jo says he hasn’t given up on being ready in time for Beijing. He thinks it’s doable.

Re: Get well soon Jojo!!

I can understand his feeling about the Olympics but I do hope he won't take too much risk....

Re: Get well soon Jojo!!

There are also news on his website (he posed for some magazine, "L'Officiel des hommes") and an interview of Wino with more details:
http://www.coach365.fr/actu/article_...e-l-ete-.shtml

He will do this rehab until mid July and if everything goes well, he will start playing again then. Right now, he can only swim. Next week, he will be allowed to do some cycling. Etc. It takes one full month until he can start training again.
When he was injured in the past, it was actually tougher for him because he was not sure he would ever be able to play again! The only thing he has to do this time is to be patient and to take the rehab very seriously. If he does it, he's almost sure to be back on the tour until the end of the summer. He also won't have to start from the scratch again (= go through Futures again, etc.) because that's really discouraging. And he now knows that he is able to compete with the top players. All this makes it much easier for him, even though it's always tough not to be able to play and to improve during that time, of course.
It would be better to play on clay after a knee injury, but he'll have to play on hard. They'll just start practicing again on clay for a while. They won't take any risks anyway and won't rush his comeback.
Jo badly wanted to play RG, that's why they tried the option without surgery.
Jo is in good spirits atm and takes advantage of that break to do things he couldn't do otherwise.

I miss him. Hopefully he doesn't rush anything. Glad to hear he is happy though.

Re: Get well soon Jojo!!

In the JDD today:
Opéré du genou, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga semblait résigné à regarder les Jeux à la télé. La rééducation en Suisse est porteuse d'optimisme. "Jo a 15 jours d'avance sur le programme, le genou réagit parfaitement et il est tourné à fond sur Pékin", confie son coach Eric Winogradski. Tsonga reprendra la raquette le 14 juillet.

He's in rehab in Switzerland and still hoping to be ready in time for Beijing. Wino confirms he is 15 days ahead of the normal schedule and the knee is fine. He will start playing again on the 14th of July.

So he plans to celebrate his return to the courts on France's National Holiday I wish him successful comeback and good health.
