Tennis-Injured Tsonga retires from second round at Wimbledon
LONDON, June 26
LONDON, June 26 (Reuters) - French sixth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga retired injured in his second round match against Latvia's Ernests Gulbis at Wimbledon on Wednesday.
Tsonga, who was a potential quarter-final opponent for British number one Andy Murray, withdrew while trailing two sets to one down on Centre Court.
He called on a trainer at the end of the second set to get treatment on his knee but threw in the towel a set later, joining a long list of casualties on day three of the championships. (Reporting by Neil Maidment; Editing by Pritha Sarkar)
