While returning to competition in Canada, Gaël Monfils suffered severe foot pain and was forced to retire.



Fate seems to be beating down on Gaël Monfils.

Barely returning from a heel injury after 3 months of absence from the courts, the Frenchman was forced to give up in the middle of the match on the night of Thursday to Friday, taken by a sharp pain in his right foot. .

While he was led 6-2, 0-2 by the Briton Jack Draper (82nd) ​​in the round of 16 of the Masters 1000 in Montreal, Gaël Monfils suddenly stopped in the middle of a point.

The 35-year-old Parisian was relieved by the referee and his opponent, helped to reach his chair.

When the physio intervened to try to relieve him, Gaël Monfils buried his head in his polo shirt, grimacing in pain.

After a short discussion with his box and while he was still limping, the Habs were forced to give up.

While he had made a good comeback on the courts, Gaël Monfils seems to be caught up in his body, almost 2 weeks before the start of the US Open.

This injury, if it constitutes a relapse, would be a big blow for Gaël Monfils.

He had made the US Open, a tournament he enjoys, his goal for the second half of the season.

Anyone who has not taken part in a Grand Slam tournament since a quarter-final at the Australian Open last January could therefore miss the US Open (August 29-September 11), just like Zverev also returning from injury and which may be too short.

For now, no decision on a potential package has been made, but his limping appearance on leaving the court does not bode well.
