Nicolas Mahut comments on Tsonga´s quotes: ´He had to speak to me´

Interviewed by Clicanoo, Nicolas Mahut commented on Jo Wilfried Tsonga's quotes. The World No. 10 was accused of lacking team spirit in the quarter-finals against Great Britain last July, especially in the doubles alongside Nicolas Mahut: 'In London for the captain the best doubles player was Nicolas Mahut.

They accused me because i haven't found him, I haven't "rised him". But I think that when you play such a crucial doubles, you need to know how to be alone' - said Tsonga. 'I'm so stressed since yesterday (Saturday) - replied Mahut - I struggled to sleep.

It was better if Jo would have spoken to me before releasing these quotes. I want him to explain me. I don't want polemics through the press. We've to represent the French Team'. Tsonga also spoke about 2014 final against Switzerland, when he was suffering a forearm injury and was forced to play on the first day against Stan Wawrinka, winner of the match, before withdrawing from doubles match.

"I could have said: 'I cannot play'. But do I have this right? Do we have this right in a team? He would haven't chosen me" said referring to Noah. ALSO READ: Mahut: ´We plan to pay tribute to victims in Paris´ Gasquet: ´I feel empty mentally´
