London - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga's preparations for Wimbledon have suffered a blow after the Frenchman was forced to pull out of next week's warm-up event at Queen's Club.

Tsonga sustained an adductor injury against Ernests Gulbis in the French Open third round and has been unable to recover in time to take his place at the Queen's tournament in west London.

"I am very disappointed that this injury means that I will not be able to play in the Aegon Championships at the Queen's Club, Tsonga said in a statement released by tournament officials.

"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. I hope to return in the future."

Tsonga, beaten by Andy Murray in the 2011 Queen's final, is ranked 12th in the world and is a former Australian Open finalist.

He has also reached the semi-finals at Wimbledon and the French Open.
