Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has pulled out of next week’s Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club with an adductor injury, organisers of the grasscourt tournament said on Thursday.

Tsonga, runner-up to Andy Murray in 2011, suffered the injury at the French Open where he was forced to retire in the third round against Ernests Gulbis.

“I am very disappointed,” Tsonga, 31, said in a statement.

“It is one of my favourite tournaments, home of some very happy moments for me on the court — reaching the top 100 for the first time and playing in the final — and I was looking forward to coming back.”

Defending champion Andy Murray will be aiming for a record fifth title when the event gets underway on Monday.
