Tsonga crashes out

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s Wimbledon hopes suffered a double blow on Thursday after he injured his finger badly during a shock 7-6, 3-6, 7-6 third round defeat by Queen’s Club debutant Ivan Dodig.

Tsonga joined Andy Murray on the Queen’s Club scrapheap. The top-seeded Briton was beaten 6-3, 6-7, 7-6 in his opening match by Frenchman Nicolas Mahut on Wednesday.

Murray’s conqueror Nicolas Mahut was unable to capitalise on his unexpected passage to the third round after he was tame 7-6, 6-4 by little-known Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov.

American Andy Roddick also went out after losing 6-4, 4-6, 7-5 to Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin.

Hesh-Bops in quarters

The Indian pair of Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna overcame fighting Marcos Baghdatis and Jamie Murray 6-3, 7-6 (7-5) to reach the quarterfinals of the AEGON Championships on Thursday.
