Monfils pulls out

NEW YORK (AP) -- Top-50 player Gael Monfils of France pulled out of the U.S. Open on Thursday with a right hamstring injury.

Monfils, once ranked as high as No. 23 and currently No. 44, will be replaced in the draw by a player who lost in qualifying.

The 20-year-old Monfils, who won three junior Grand Slam titles in 2004, is considered an up-and-coming star on tour. He reached the third round at each of this year's first three majors.

I would have liked to have seen Monfils take out Ljubicic in the 2nd round.

Monfils should play against a qualifier. In the 2nd round Ljubo or Vliegen.

Re: Monfils pulls out

You just never know what's coming next with Monfils. Injury, injury, first round, first round, final, first round, injury, semis, first round, quarters, injury...

it's a wonder anyone can keep up.

I hope he's better soon.
