Bad news, but not totally unexpected

I so feel for him... always these f***ing injuries

IMO surgery will be the only long term solution. It will be hard to miss a couple of months again, but without the surgery he won't be able to go for it 100% and there always will be the risk it aggravates

Poor Jo

Here's what Montalvan (the doc of the French team) said in Winston-Salem:
http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...&postcount=439
He says everything started probably with a sprain in Surbiton last year which was very, very painful (it is a bit strange because Jo kept playing the entire grass season and seemed fine). The knee had been hurting a little bit since then, but during a doubles match in Miami he made a bad move and everything got worse.

It seems that's he'll withdraw. The officialisation should happen around 18:00
Quote:
Tsonga forfait pour Roland-Garros
La rédaction - RMC.fr, le 24/05/2008
Son genou aura finalement eu raison de ses espoirs. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga ne participera pas à Roland-Garros.
La nouvelle est lourde pour le clan français et pas encore officielle (officialisation à 18h lors d'un point presse). Jo-Wilfried Tsonga ne participera pas à Roland-Garros à partir de demain. Son épanchement au genou s'est réveillé après son quart de finale victorieux au tournoi de Casablanca. Une blessure qui va l'empêcher de disputer ses chances lors du tournoi du Grand Chelem sur la terre battue parisienne. Tsonga, malheureux depuis janvier, lui qui est poursuivi par les blessures depuis sa défaite en finale de l'Open d'Australie face à Novak Djokovic. Le Français sera opéré du ménisque mardi d'après le DTN Patrice Dominguez. Le prochain objectif de Tsonga ne sera pas Wimbledon mais l'US Open.
Apparently no Wimbledon neither

Okay Guys, that's it. At least, now we are fixed and when he will be back, it will be for good.


However, I don't think that the last month of tests and semi-competition was unworthy. He proved himself that he could be good on clay and he tried one solution to heal his knee, even if that didn't work.
And most of all, he seemed to enjoy to be on a court again (wich is a very good thing right after his little hole of decompression of the post-AO).


See you in full strenght at the USO, Jo

Horrible news

He's gone through this so many times before already, but I guess one never gets used to it.
But he proved before that he doesn't lose courage and always fights to get back.
I'm sure he'll get a lot of support of his family and Wino but it will be a difficult time again for him

Bon courage Jo

Poor Jo. Always getting injured, it's just not fair to him. Good luck.

Wimbledon? He'll be out for months.
He says in l'Equipe he's still hoping to be back in time for the Olympics, but it sounds very, very unlikely.

Here's the article in L'Equipe, somebody asked for it in private, but I can post it here too:
Quote:
Tsonga : rendez-vous à l’automne
Opéré après-demain du genou, le Français a déclaré forfait et devrait être absent environ quatre mois.
JO-WILFRIED TSONGA aura tout tenté pour disputer ce Roland-Garros qui lui tenait tant à coeur. Mais la fissure au ménisque aura été la plus forte. Inexorable, la décision de l’opération – la première de sa carrière – a été prise hier matin, puis annoncée dans une triste ambiance en fin de journée dans l’anonymat d’un hôtel parisien de la place Vendôme, si loin du central qu’il rêvait d’enflammer. « Oui, Roland Garros, c’est magique et y disputer des matches importants est la chose qui pourrait le plus me combler. J’avais des ambitions fortes pour jouer devant ce public français qui m’attendait vraiment. » Au lieu de ça, Tsonga sera mardi dans une clinique pour une arthroscopie visant à enlever le bout de ménisque douloureux. Le verdict est lourd : trois à quatre mois d’arrêt si tout se passe bien, un peu plus en cas de complication. Mais le Français, évidemment abattu face à cet énième coup du sort, n’avait pas de regret d’avoir tenté ce pari depuis que la douleur s’était manifestée avant d’affronter les États- Unis en Coupe Davis, en avril. « Il faut toujours tout faire pour éviter l’opération. J’avais subi une infiltration pour voir si mon genou pouvait tenir. Mais sitôt passés les effets de l’injection, la douleur a réapparu à Casablanca. » Placé donc devant la triste évidence, Tsonga évitait de ruminer exagérément sur ce corps qui le lâche bien souvent. « Bien sûr, je ressens beaucoup de frustration et de tristesse. Malheureusement, j’ai l’habitude d’être blessé. J’ai appris à vivre avec ça et ça me rendra plus fort. » En essayant d’être optimiste, il voulait hier se laisser une petite chance de disputer les Jeux Olympiques en août. Sur la même longueur d’onde, son coach, Éric Winogradsky, tentait de ne retenir que le positif du passé récent et de l’avenir à court terme. « Au moins, Jo aura pu se tester sur terre et voir qu’il y joue bien. En plus, j’ai la conviction que ses derniers excellents résultats sont le fruit de ces périodes de blessures où il est amené à réfléchir sur sa condition de joueur… » – F. Ra.
It says the atmosphere was really sad in the hotel where he gave a presser Place Vendôme yesterday, so far from that Center Court he was dreaming of firing up.
"RG is magic, and playing big matches there would be the most fullfilling thing for me. I was hoping very hard to be able to play in front of the French crowd which was really waiting for me".
He'll need 3-4 months to recover from the surgery. But he doesn't have any regret about his clay season and having given it a try. "One always has to do everything possible to avoid a surgery. I got an injection to see if my knee would hold up. But as soon as the effect of the injection died down in Casablanca, the pain reappeared."
"Of course I feel a lot of frustration and sadness. But I'm used to be injured, unfortunately. I've learned to live with it and it will make me stronger."
He still wants to believe he might be ready in time for the Olympic Games.
Wino also tries to be as positive as possible: "At least Jo has been able to test himself on clay and saw he can play well on that surface. And I'm sure his excellent results lately are the consequence of all these injury breaks which force him to think about his situation as a tennis player."
