France's Jo Wilfried Tsonga is set to undergo further tests to determine the level of the injury that forced him to retire his Montpellier semi-final clash. The 32-year-old had a 6-1 5-5 lead over rising French Lucas Pouille when he was forced to suddenly retire the match.
The 2008 Australian Open runner-up is set to undergo further tests as he fears that he has torn his left hamstring. "A big (tear), a little one, I don't know yet, I'm going to have to have more tests," Tsonga said post-match.
Tsonga announced that he would skip next week's ATP Rotterdam just a couple of hours after retiring hurt against Pouille. The Frenchman made it all the way in Rotterdam last year. Injury-plagued Tsonga has had many injury problems in the last couple of years.
The 32-year-old admits that he can't be making scheduling mistakes going forward. "I've reached a moment in my career where I need to make some choices about when I play," Tsonga acknowledged.
