Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will be out of action for an estimated period of six weeks, following a recurrence of his left knee injury that he sustained at Wimbledon. The injury means that the Tsonga will be unable to play any more matches this season, and is unable to compete in France’s Davis Cup Final against Serbia.

Tsonga may have been able to continue with the aid of medical assistance, but expressed a concern about risking long-term injury. He said, “I will need to have six weeks of complete rest… I could have played by taking loads of anti-inflammatories, but the risk is getting injured for six months”.

Tsonga also declared that this is the ‘hardest moment’ of his career, alongside having to withdraw from the Olympic games in 2008. Tsonga has had a good season in general, and is currently ranked thirteenth in the world. The highlight of his season was his run in the Australian Open, where he reached the semi-finals before crashing out to Roger Federer, who went on to win the competition.
