Tennis: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga resigns after French Open

«The fact that I started a small family has (…) turned my life upside down. She now takes precedence over everything else. And then there’s the fact that my body has been abused from years of work and competition and it just can’t keep up today. The ability I used to have to overcome myself physically has left me.”

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (turns 37 on April 17) explains his decision to end his career after the tournament in Roland Garros in detail to “L’Équipe”. The second Grand Slam tournament of the year begins on May 22nd. The Frenchman, who has dropped to 220th place due to his many injuries in the past, needs a wildcard to take part in Paris. That shouldn’t be a problem.
