Gaël Monfils withdraws from the ATP 250 in Metz

Gaël Monfils' return to competition will not take place in Metz. The Frenchman, hit in the foot and forced to abandon in Montreal in August, withdrew from the ATP 250 Moselle Open (September 19-25), as revealed by Julien Boutter, the tournament director: " He worked hard, he recovered very soon after his injury in the United States. We got the answer (Friday morning) that he would not be ready and competitive to come to Metz. When you know the density of the painting, it could have come but it would have been almost only figuration. He preferred to give up. »

The tournament board remains very tough with the presence of Daniil Medvedev, Hubert Hurkacz, Dominic Thiem as well as Richard Gasquet, Gilles Simon and Ugo Humbert, invited by the organizers.
