For his very last appearance as a player on clay at Roland-Garros, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who lost to Casper Ruud, received a huge tribute on the Philippe-Chatrier court.
The one who began his professional career in 2004 declared to the French public “Since my youngest age I wanted to become a great sportsman. I would like to thank all the people who allowed me to remain myself. I had the chance and the opportunity to do so. I was also lucky to be supported by my family and my friends. I wanted to thank French tennis for having accompanied me during all these years.
