Seems to be a recurring left knee injury (maybe tendonitis as there is some inflammation there)...not a great sign for 2008, especially given how tough a full season is on the body. :(

Anyway, in brief, it seems that he has had to halt his preparations for the 2008 season, "for several days." Might skip Adelaide so as to be 100% ready for the Australian Open.

Not worth a thread in GM, really, L'Equipe only reported he stopped practicing for a couple of days because he felt some pain in his knee and he will resume the training this week. Gasquet says it's nothing serious (« pas grave du tout »).

It's clearly a bad new as he now can't use this off season to improve his game and his fitness.
As ridiculous as it would sound,perhaps that now he should skip the whole australian season.
Better to miss one GS and to work on your game and on your fitness during this time.

Gasgay was never going to be a threat at the AO. FO home pressure will be too much for him, but things look brighter from then onwards.

Possibly. :lol:

I guess that my point behind this thread is that the knee seems to be a problem...it hasn't been 100% for a few months now. I'd be a little worried that maybe his knee gives him more trouble during the 2008 season? :shrug:

why is he always injured? :sad: :confused:
He is not always injured. It is just L'Equipe eagerly jumping on every little ailment, that gives this impression. :eek:

Besides, much better to have an extended preparation than to wear himself out in Adelaide and Sydney before the AO.

Gasquet withdraws from Adelaide

World No.8 Richard Gasquet has been forced to withdraw injured from the Next Generation Adelaide International making Australian Lleyton Hewitt the tournament’s top seed.

Gasquet is suffering from a knee injury, which has forced him to delay the start of his season.

Tournament co-director Peter Johnston said it was a shame for Gasquet but created opportunities for others.

“It obviously isn’t nice to see Richard withdraw from the event,” Johnston said. “As a sign of his class though, he has decided he will still come to Adelaide in the lead-up to the tournament for media opportunities.

“We wish him all the best for a speedy recovery and hope he will be back in time for the rest of the Australian summer. “

The withdrawal moves Australian Grand Slam champion Lleyton Hewitt up to the top seeding for the US$465,000 tournament.

It also means another Frenchman, former Adelaide finalist Michael Llodra, moves into the main draw. Llodra was a runner-up in Adelaide in 2004 and is a two-time Australian Open (2003, 2004) doubles champion.

Although Australian Chris Guccione has already been awarded a main draw wildcard, he is now only two places out from direct entry. Should he move in to direct entry the wildcard would most likely be used for another Australian.
