Black Tennis Pro's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
Yesterday at the U.S. Open Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga returned to the courts after an extensive layoff because of surgery to his knee. After Tsonga enthralled the tennis world with his beautiful play at the Australian open this year, he was greatly missed while out with his injury.

Although Tsonga was not in the form that we saw him in when he was a grand slam tournament finalist, he still managed to defeat his opponent Spainard Santiago Ventura 7-6(7/3), 6-4, 6-2, 6-3.

“I didn't play really good tennis...I was a bit worried about my knee"

"Of course it is different than before. But I feel good."

Tsonga will have a brief period to rest his knee before he hits the courts again against Carlos Moya.

“It is difficult,” Tsonga said of coming back from his injury. “That’s life. Sometimes you are happy and sometimes you are not. I am happy to be back on the court.”
