Top seed Gael Monfils has withdrawn from the Sydney International with a shoulder injury which also has the Frenchman in doubt for the Australian Open starting in Melbourne next Monday.

Monfils says his right serving shoulder is inflamed and requires several days' rest.

The world No.12 is hopeful of being fit for the opening grand slam of the year, but won't make a decision until later this week.

Short off season will do that, but Monfils did the right thing and hope the magic treatment works for him.

Sounds like he should be fine after a few days of rest and treatment.

I'm not sure he is REALLY injured. He just realize that going to Sydney is not the best way to prepare AO.

Yes, he was expected to pull out of Sydney anyway, his manager had pretty much said it weeks ago already.
