Monfils pulls out of the Olympics

Afeter Nadal, Gael Monfils is the 2nd player to pull out of the tournament, the reason being a knee injury. He is replaced by Benneteau. Get well soon Gael

It's not really an injury, maybe the better word would be knee problems, bcs he allrdy said that he's been feeling pain in his knees ever since USO and this year it got worse. That's the reason he didn't play any events since Nice and he hoped to be ready for the Olympics, but unfortunately that didn't happen.

Sad for Gael, but Julien is pretty good on grass so hopefully he does well

Re: Monfils pulls out of the Olympics

I dont like Gael much but man, his career has been so screwed by injries
Get well soon Gael, its sad to see him unable to compete for France though he had very minuscule chances of a medal anyway. Still, get well soon!

Re: Monfils pulls out of the Olympics

Fuck, i like Monfils and his style.
But positive to see a guy like Benneteau at Olympics...for the last time, he is a great player and he deserves it to be there, especially on grass.
