There are news in L'Equipe today (http://www.gaelmonfils.com/forum/vie...=1&t=245#p5762
) and his form sounds very, very average. He admits he has basically done nothing since the Davis Cup. He says his hand was preventing him not only from playing, but also from doing work-out for his upper body because he couldn't do push-ups, lift weights, etc. So he has lost a lot of muscular mass. And his game is looking accordingly, the journalist says Marrero gave him a very hard time in training yesterday.
Rasheed confirms it, but says that at least the long break was good for the knee.
