Injured Frenchman Gasquet won't play at Monte Carlo

Latest update : 2009-04-11

French tennis hope Richard Gasquet won't play at the clay season opening tournament in Monte Carlo. The player has suffered a shoulder injury but hopes to be able to compete at the Barcelona Open on April 20.

AFP - France's Richard Gasquet has pulled out of the Monte Carlo Masters after failing to shrug off a persistent right shoulder injury, organisers announced Friday.
  
The problem had already forced the world number 23, who last played at Indian Wells at the beginning of March, to skip the Miami Masters.
  
"He is still feeling the injury," said Patrice Hagelaur, an official with Gasquet's management company, Team Lagardere.
  
The former French number one, who had made a bright start to the year with semi-final appearances in Brisbane, Sydney and Dubai, is hoping to return at the Barcelona Open which starts on April 20.
