Player Profile

Tsonga is certainly a player whose game is well suited to the slick grasscourts of Wimbledon.

A booming serve is backed up with a fearsome forehand, but crucially the Muhammad Ali lookalike also likes to come forward and attack the net.

However, Tsonga's hopes have been undermined by a hip injury picked up in the recent French Open.

That leaves the 2008 Australian Open runner-up as a major doubt to even line up at the All England Club.
