Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Other French Players Donate Items to Raise Funds for Charity

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is donating a racket that he used to win the 2017 Open 13 Provence in Marseille and the 2017 ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam to a charity auction aimed at raising funds for Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP).

Tsonga joins Richard Gasquet and other French players to raise funds in the fight against the pandemic with the support of the French Tennis Federation. Tennis fans can bid on experiences and a range of tennis memorabilia ahead of the auction deadline at 19:00 (CEST) on Sunday, 3 May where more than 100 items are available.

Gasquet, Guy Forget and Henri Leconte are among a number of stars offering one-hour tennis sessions at Roland Garros or the French National Training Centre. Pierre-Hugues Herbert’s polo shirt and racquet from his 2019 Nitto ATP Finals win is also up for auction.

Ugo Humbert has donated his complete outfit and racquet from his first ATP Tour final victory at the 2020 ASB Classic in Auckland earlier this year.
