«He doesn’t have a problem with his knee but we decided there was no point in playing the rest of the year. We have already turned our attention to 2013,» Chamagne said.
Frankly, I don't believe him at all. Why would Gael not play in Bercy if he is physically up to it? Gael is a born Parisian, it is a home-tournament, some crowd support - in this difficult times- would be good for him. And it won't get easier next year when he will have a terribly poor ranking. The Doha final will come off straight away in 2013.
