Tsonga pulls out of Australian Open with injury

Paris, January 7: French tennis star Jo–Wilfried Tsonga has pulled out of the Australian Open starting Jan19 with an arm injury. The 29–year–old has been struggling with injury for over a month and missed defending his title of the Hopman Cup. “It is with great disappointment that I have to postpone today the start of my season, pulling out of the Australian Open,” Tsonga said on Twitter on Wednesday.

“I am still suffering from a forearm inflammation that prevents me being 100% in a competition.”

World No.12, Tsonga reached the fil of the 2008 Australian Open, but lost to No.1 Novak Djokovic and is twice a Wimbledon semi–filist. “I’m going to receive over three weeks all the needed treatments to be able to be back on track in the best conditions,” he said. IANS
