Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has pulled out of next week’s Nottingham grass-court tournament after failing to recover from an abdominal injury, placing a question mark over his Wimbledon participation.
The world number 12 hasn’t played since suffering the injury in his French Open semi-final defeat to Stan Wawrinka two weeks ago.
He has also missed the grass-court events in s-Hertogenbosch and Halle as a result.
“Tsonga has had to pull out of three tournaments now in the lead up to Wimbledon and I hope he recovers well so he can take his place at The Championships,” said Nottingham tournament director Paul Hutchins.
Wimbledon gets under way on June 29.
