Mary Pierce’s countryman Gael Monfils

Mary Pierce’s countryman Gael Monfils has become such an injury prone player these days.

No player on the tour would have withdrawn from the middle of the matches as much as Monfils has done in the recent times.

In almost every second tournament, he does something to himself and goes down.

There was that same scene in Miami a couple of days ago when he could not survive a slide playing in Round no. 4 versus the Czech Republic International Tomas Berdych.

It did not seem to be that big an injury though the way Monfils talked about it later on, but, because of him being so injury prone, he might be denied the chance of playing in the Davis Cup this year.

Arnaud Clement, the man in charge of the Davis Cup team of France, might not want to gamble his inclusion for the tie versus Great Britain as there is no guarantee regarding his fitness.

Monfils’ numbers in the Davis Cup though are as good as anyone else. Who can forget his win over Roger Federer the previous year? What a great performance that was.

But, it’s hard not to worry about his fragile fitness.

Also, grass court tennis isn’t Monfils’ forte. Clement have to consider that as well.

It’s almost certain that the tie between Great Britain and France is going to take place at Queen’s club where the surface is quite grassy and quick. That might not be to the liking of Monfils. Read more »
