There also is a short video of his presser here:
http://roland-garros.france2.fr/inde...hp?page=videos

He's watching the match of Ouanna at the moment. His reaction when Josselin asked for the trainer was so cute, he was facepalming.
But it's a heartbreak everytime they show him.

I am totally gutted for Tsonga. He was so looking forward to Roland Garros. It would have been an incredible joy just to see him trying to conquer clay, win or lose.

Good to hear that he's not expressing regrets about Cassablanca. I suppose it was something he had to do for himself, find out if he could adapt his game to the surface and indeed the results were encouraging. Hopefully, next year we'll see him finish what he started, this time on the grand stage at RG.

Tsonga, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I wish you a successful operation and speedy recovery. Looking forward to see you again, hopefully very soon. Bon courage.

I bump this thread for the upcoming tournament of Bucarest where he has taken a wildcard. With a week of trainig, I think we can hope for something more, even maybe something good (). He has yet to win his first title on the main tour.


The draw is going to be quite interesting with Richard (who took a WC here too), almagro, gulbis, gillou, Paulo, Seppi or Moya.

Why do you mention Gulbis before the 2nd seed? Are you a Gulbistard too?

But seriously, it's not sure at all Jo will play there. Le Parisien writes he will decide on Thursday. The goal is to be ready for Bercy and Wino says he needs 3 weeks of work to find back his rhythm ("Tsonga compte maintenant « beaucoup jouer » mais « sans faire n’importe quoi ». Selon son état de récupération, il décidera jeudi de participer ou non au tournoi de Bucarest. « J’aimerais bien être au top pour Bercy fin octobre, ça serait cool », disait-il dimanche après sa défaite. « Il lui faut trois semaines de boulot pour qu’il commence à retrouver un bon rythme », conclut Winogradsky.").
And L'Equipe already assumes he will skip Bucharest because when they talk about his schedule, they only mention Bangkok, Tokyo, Madrid, Lyon, Bercy.

I feel indifferent to Gulbis


Yeah, I made the thread before reading the équipe article where Bucarest doesn't appear in his program. Well, I've got no peculiar problem with the asian tourneys anyway

(I just need to make another Hardcourt season thread )

Now it seems he's in talk for a WC in Szczecin too, so I guess he will play Bucharest and play 2 events on clay.

Now people say on his website he's not going to play Bucharest and will rather get ready for the Asian tourney (I guess he will not play Szczecin either then).
They're already promoting him big time in Szczecin:

We'll see tomorrow if he's in the draw!
