Gael Monfils announces his withdrawal from Wimbledon

Frenchman Gaël Monfils, who has been absent from the courts since May, has announced his withdrawal from the British tournament at Wimbledon.

The French No. 1 posted a message via his twitter account to announce his non-participation in the Wimbledon tournament which will take place from June 27 to July 10. Gael Monfils did not prepare on grass this year due to physical problems and has not played since the beginning of May after his defeat in Madrid.

The 23rd player in the world said “Because I recently returned to training and the demanding grass and best-of-five matches, my team and I have decided not to play Wimbledon this year. I will rather focus on my preparation in order to be ready for the summer“. He also specifies that he will resume competition at a tournament in Hamburg in July.
