Jo-Wilfried Tsonga had to fight through some serious pain during his semifinal match against Andy Murray at Wimbledon on Friday after being hit in about the worst place possible for a man.
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.
Now the only question is if Tsonga pulls a Tomas Berdych after the match.

I guess indecent exposure is one of the hazards of playing tennis in shorts.
While this headline gives the impression that tennis player Andy Murray, suffering from some testicular issues, was given new shorts by Adidas to help secure his untamed junk during matches, what it’s actually referring to are the tennis balls that were popping out of his shorts during a recent match...

Yesterday, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga provided us with the below effort after his Wimbledon quarterfinal win over Philipp Kohlschreiber:
It seems like all of Wimbledon is cheering for Andy Murray over Roger Federer today except for Murray’s girlfriend. She gave the golf clap a few times. Meanwhile, they are showing Murray’s hometown bar with a line of people out of the door going absolutely bat **** crazy. Federer almost took a ball to the face. Just look at all of these photos of everyone going freaking crazy...
