Jo-Wilfried Tsonga's nightmare season continues. The French player, who dropped to the 37th place of the ATP Rankings, announced through his social media channels that he underwent surgery. 'Hi all, despite the attempt to compete again, my knee didn't react well.
I couldn't avoid a little operation that I had yesterday and that went very well. Everyone are optimistic for a quick return on court, our goal is still to play the clay-court season. Thanks for your support and see you soon!' Tsonga hurt his knee in early February during the semifinals match against Lucas Pouille in Montpellier.
After that, he withdrew from Rotterdam, Marseille, Indian Wells and Miami. He won't play the Monte Carlo Masters and could comeback in May where he is committed to four events in a row: Madrid, Rome, Lyon and Roland Garros.
The former world No. 5, who will turn 33 in April 17, has posted a photo featuring him on crutches and with his one-year-old kid next to him.
... Tout le monde est optimiste pour un retour rapide sur les courts, notre objectif est toujours de fouler la terre battue cette saison.

Bonjour à tous,
Un petit mot pour vous dire que, malgré une tentative de retour à la compétition, mon genou a répondu défavorablement.
