Tsonga knocked out of Monte Carlo Masters
World Number 10 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has crashed out of the Monte Carlo Masters in his opening match after a surprise defeat to French compatriot Adrian Mannarino
On Tuesday afternoon, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga suffered a shock defeat at the Monte-Carlo Masters.
Tsonga took the first set against a man ranked 46 places below him, but Tsonga lost momentum as Mannarino found his and went on to win 6-7 (3-7) 6-2 6-3.
This was their second encounter, Tsonga having won their previous one. And he was making his return to the ATP Tour after taking a break due to the birth of his son in March.
But it was not a winning return for the player ranked seventh in this competition.
