Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has not made any decisions about whether he will play Indian Wells, Miami or the quarterfinals of Davis Cup, saying he will prioritize the birth of his first child.

Tsonga's girlfriend, Noura El Shwekh, is expecting in April. 

"The American tournaments, that depends also on [her]," he told reporters in French following his win in Marseille.

The Frenchman is on a roll, having won back-to-back events in Rotterdam and Marseille and risen to No. 7 in the rankings.

But he will take a break if required.

"Tennis, it's fabulous, it's big for me," he said. "Yet there is another part which is also very important. That is my family."

Tsonga has a 17-3 record this season, tied for the most wins on tour.
