Re: Monfils withdraws from Roland Garros

Monfils lost to Baker in Nice, a guy returning after like 7 years and making his 2nd ATP match on clay ever. Seemed Gael was a bit off then so this is no surprise.

Even if he did play he'd lose in the early rounds so better that he tries to get back to 100%

Re: Monfils withdraws from Roland Garros

Ugh.. That's really bad to not play at his home and he has had so nice results at RG. Hard decision for sure but smart move. Get well soon Gael!

Never ever give up
