Former world No. 5 Jo Wilfried Tsonga says he is doing just like everyone else during the coronavirus pandemic. The Frenchman did an interview with the French Tennis Federation (FFT) in which he spoke about what he has been up to lately.
Tsonga, 34, is at home with his family as he is awaiting to see what will happen with the season. As revealed on We Love Tennis France, Tsonga said in his interview that he trains once or twice a day. Tsonga, now ranked at No.
49 in the world, didn't start the season on the way he hoped he would. The Frenchman kicked off his season in Doha, where he was beaten by rising Serbian star Miomir Kecmanovic in the first round. The 34-year-old's campaign at the Australian Open was also short-lived as it ended on a disappointing way.
Tsonga couldn't even finish his first round match at Melbourne Park as he was forced to retire against Australian Alexei Popyrin. In his interview, Tsonga also said he is taking proper steps toward his recovery. The Frenchman is well aware that he has to do all the things right in order to have a successful recovery.
Tsonga won't have a chance to make his comeback anytime soon as the tennis season has been suspended until at least June 7. Unfortunately, the belief among the players is that the ATP will once again extend the Tour suspension and that the grass season will get called off.
