After 705 games and 18 years of career, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga bows out. Acclaimed by the public at the Philippe-Chatrier court, the Frenchman, in tears, said goodbye to the professional circuit on Tuesday May 24. He was defeated by the Norwegian Casper Ruud after a meeting in four sets (6-7, 7-6, 6-2, 7-6) where the Manceau did not go far from achieving a feat. Starting badly, Ruud, seeded number 8, recovered, seeming to be heading for a victory after the third set. Tsonga then showed panache in the fourth set. At 5-5, the Frenchman thus signed a white break, but at the same time his shoulder dropped him. Unable to serve normally, to hit shots with the same power as usual, he ended up surrendering in a final tie-break. During a ceremony, he was then able to receive a beautiful tribute, that deserved from a player who conquered the second most beautiful list of men’s French tennis in the Open era.
