Tsonga fears Wimbledon KO after injury
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga fears he could be forced to withdraw from Wimbledon after suffering a "serious" finger injury during his third round defeat against Ivan Dodig at Queen's Club on Thursday.
Tsonga damaged his right hand when he slipped and fell awkwardly in the sixth game of the final set and the world No 5 will go for tests to determine if the injury is significant enough to stop him competing at Wimbledon, which starts on June 25.
The former Australian Open finalist, who reached the semifinals at the All England Club last year after an epic win over Roger Federer, admits he is worried he may not recover in time.
"I think it's serious. I didn't do an exam for the moment, but it sounds very bad," Tsonga said after his 7-6 (7/3), 3-6, 7-6 (7/5) defeat against Dodig.
"I just fell down on it. That's it. I felt like I broke something or I stretched a lot of ligaments."
Asked if he thought it was unlikely he would make Wimbledon if the finger is broken, the Frenchman added: "Yeah, for the moment. I will do some exams. I don't know what is it, so I will stay positive and I will see."
