Well that answers the question as to whether or not tennis players wear protective cups.
In the third set of his semifinal match against eventual winner Andy Murray, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s desciison to go to the net against the Scot turned out to be a really poor decision, as Tsonga ended up taking a strong forehand shot right to the junk. The Frenchman tried walking off the pain but it was too unbearable and he ended up down on all fours on the court, in a position that looks almost as if he was praying to Mecca to relieve the intense pain in his crotchal region.
Eventually Tsonga got back to his feet, adjusted his wounded dong, toweled off his tear stained face, and bravely resumed play. Now that takes real testicular fortitude guts.
Here’s cringeworthy video of Tsonga taking a full-on nut shot (via Hot Clicks)…
Here’s hoping Tsonga’s groin makes a full and speedy recovery.
