Jo Wilfried Tsonga fears he has tear in left hamstring

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.
