If you're in Europe and see an athlete writhing around the grass in pain, he's usually wearing a soccer uniform and trying to milk a faux injury in order get a call from the referee. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga had a good reason for sprawling out on Centre Court during Friday's semifinal loss to Andy Murray – a very good and very painful one.

Tsonga walked it off and was able to close out the third set later in his service game.

After the match, he said it was painful but was in a joking mood nonetheless. When asked what he thought about Murray's shot, Tsonga said, "I wanted to run to the other side of net and massacre him."
