Gasquet in all-French clash, Grosjean pulls out

Latest update : 2008-05-24

France's No1 hope Richard Gasquet faces fellow Frenchman Florent Serra in the 1st round of the French Open, but won't be playing Sébastien Grosjean, who pulled out with a shoulder injury.

Frenchman Sebastien Grosjean pulled out of the French Open on Friday with a right shoulder injury.

 

"I've been struggling with a shoulder injury for the past three months," Grosjean told a news confrence.

 

"The doctor did not give me the green light to serve at 100 percent. I prefer to focus on the grasscourt season."

 

Grosjean, a semi-finalist at Roland-Garros in 2001, will be replaced in the main draw by a lucky loser.

 

The draw for the tournament, starting on Sunday, will be made on Friday.
