Former French tennis player Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is set to return to Roland Garros this year in a different role. Tsonga will be a part of Amazon Prime Video’s coverage of the French Open, sharing his deep level of tennis knowledge with fans throughout the tournament.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga retired from professional tennis at Roland Garros last year, after suffering a four-set defeat to Casper Ruud in the first round. The former two-time French Open semifinalist made his main draw debut at the tournament in 2005 and had picked it as the event where he wanted to retire.
Despite not achieving his goal of winning a Grand Slam title, Tsonga was happy with his tennis journey. He expressed his gratitude for the support he received from the Parisian crowd, who helped him fight until the end in his last match.
Tsonga was a fan favorite throughout his career and he explained that tennis provided him with a way to express himself freely. He also appreciated the people around him, with whom he could share both the happy and the difficult moments.
This year’s French Open promises to be even more exciting with the addition of Tsonga’s tennis expertise to the Amazon Prime Video coverage. Fans can look forward to learning from one of France’s greatest tennis players as they watch their favorite players compete on the clay courts of Roland Garros.
