Tsonga was serving up 5-3 in the third set after being down two sets to none when he got drilled in the manly region. The Frenchman had hit a drop volley and Murray came in for the passing shot, but the only thing the ball passed through was Tsonga’s groin.
Jo-Wilfried went down immediately in pain and needed to take a knee, only this time it wasn’t in celebration. After taking about a minute to recover, Tsonga resumed his serve and won the set 6-3 to continue the match.
At least Tsonga didn’t pull a Tomas Berdych after the match.
