This Thursday, via his account Twitter official, the Frenchman Gaël Monfils has formalized his package for the next edition of Wimbledon, which will take place between this Monday June 27 and Sunday July 10. On this famous social network, the Habs wrote in its press release: “Hello, I wanted to give you a little point following my foot injury. I started training again this week and I felt really good. 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. Due to my recent return to training and due to the physical demands of lawn tennis/best of five, my team and I have made the decision not to play Wimbledon this year. Instead, I will focus on my preparation to be ready for the summer. I will return to competition in Hamburg and then in Kitzbühel before traveling to the United States. See you soon, Gael. »

Monfils also missed Roland-Garros this season

The last time Gaël Monfils played a tennis match was last May. At that time, and more precisely on May 3, in the second round in Madrid, the Habs, 23rd player in the world, had then fallen against the Serbian Novak Djokovic, today down to third place in the world, but at the time head series number one, in two sets (6-3, 6-2) and 1h28 of play. Since then, the main interested party, French number one, has therefore had no preparation on the grass., while his training has only restarted this week. This season, Gaël Monfils also and notably missed Roland-Garros, due to a problem with his right heel.
