Re: US Open Series

hey!
I've just found some news about Gael.
Apparently he injured his toe.
He'll be back in Toronto.


Monfils: retour à Toronto

Gaël Monfils est attendu au tournoi de Toronto à partir du 7 août pour son retour à la compétition. Le numéro un français s'est blessé il y a un mois au doigt de pied.

Get well soon Gael

Re: US Open Series

But he has withdrawn from Toronto too.
I've read the same article in L'Équipe and his trainer seemed to say that Gael injured his toe before Wimbledon, but he also needed to take a break anyway and that's why he skipped the clay tournaments in order to get ready and well-rested for the hardcourt season.
But now that he has withdrawn from Toronto too, it must be something different...

Re: US Open Series

This doesn't look good. I suspect the back injury is still givng trouble. I think we can write off the summer hardcourt season because even if he returns in Cincy, New Haven or NY I doubt he'll find form quickly enough.

I'm scared for him. I just hope he can salvage the indoor season.

Re: US Open Series

Somebody wrote in the forum of "Tennis Magazine" (http://forum.tennismagazine.fr) that Gael is training in Spain atm with Champion and his foot is getting better. Now I don't know if it's true, it's just a post in a forum.
But if it's true, his withdrawal from Toronto is only due to this toe injury (maybe it took longer to heal than expected and his preparation was a bit too short for Toronto or something like that).
The same poster also says he will play in Cincy.

Re: US Open Series

Well. Just do your best. Very hard draw for a post-injury return...

edit: But he made it!

6-4, 7-5!

Despite not playing well at all in what seem to be an ugly match, he fought and made it. Well done Gaël!

Marat really takes his time to come back at his best level...Good luck Marat.
