La Monf withdraws from San Jose, another final for Milos
Gael Monfils has pulled out of the SAP Open with a left wrist injury hours after beating Tim Smyczek 6-4, 7-6 (6) to advance to the semifinals.
Monfils originally hurt the wrist in the first round of the Australian Open last month. He had an MRI on Monday and won three matches, as well as an exhibition against Pete Sampras in San Jose.
He made his decision to withdraw after being examined Friday by tournament and French federation doctors. Monfils says he will be sidelined for four to six weeks, pulling out of tournaments in Memphis, Acapulco and the Davis Cup.
The withdrawal sends Milos Raonic into his first career final after knocking off Richard Berankis 6-4, 7-6 (2). Juan Martin del Potro will play Fernando Verdasco in the other semi.

Raonic vs karlovic tomorrow for an exhibition. After the match they will also have a contest to see who have the biggest serve.
Juan Martin Del Potro
But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.
