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 :sad:

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.

I dont like Gael much but man, his career has been so screwed by injries :sad:
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!

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.

So, Nadal and Monfils, the two most muscular players of the ATP Top 100 withdraw from the event with the heaviest anti doping tests.

Interesting. Hope they recover soon...

The worst feeling, as a sports fan, to witness an athlete go down with injuries. So sad.

Get well soon Monfils.

Benny needs only 2 sets here to cause major upset.( until final it is Bo3). He can play 2 good sets vs top guns...

Oh shut it.

They had plenty of time to test Nadal at the Olympics in 08, did they not?

Yes, and Monfils also pulled out from RG and SW19 just so he can have an excuse to pull out from the Olympics bcs he doesn't want to get tested. Seems legit :yeah:
