French tennis player Gael Monfils injured his wrist and was unable to continue in the first round match of the Masters Series tournament in Miami.
Monfils withdrew from the match against his compatriot Hugo Humbert in the first set with the score of 3:3. The Miami tournament was the second for Monfils since August. Then the athlete injured his foot and underwent surgery.
We’ll do some tests and see what happens. Of course, I have goals that I want to achieve, but sometimes you have to step back and wait. Then, if I can’t continue, then I can’t, but I will do everything to recover. I like what I do. I love my sport. You know, I could have stopped a long time ago, but I still love it and enjoy it, — quotes the words of Monfils to AFP.
Monfils, 36, occupies the 280th row in the ATP rankings, he has 11 tournament victories to his credit.
