Gaël Monfils package for Wimbedon

Without much surprise given his lack of preparation on the grass, Gaël Monfils announced Thursday his withdrawal for the Wimbledon tournament, which begins on Monday. The French n°1 explains in a press release published on Twitter that he recommended training this week (he suffered from the right heel and had also had to cancel at Roland-Garros) but wants to give himself time to get back in better shape. .

“I will now be able to gradually increase my training and spend more time on the court to get back in shape, both physically and tennis-wise”, writes Monfils.

“Because I have 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. »

The Frenchman, currently 23rd in the world, adds that he will resume competition in Hamburg (July 18-24) then line up in Kitzbühel (July 25-30) before flying off for the American tour.
