  • Monfils wants to gain full fitness before making a comeback
  • Monfils played the quarterfinals of the Australian Open

French tennis star Gael Monfils withdrew his name from the upcoming edition of the French Open as he is set to undergo heel surgery. The World No.22 Monfils began the year on a handsome note after winning his 11th ATP tour title and qualifying for the quarterfinals of the Australian Open at Melbourne Park, where Italy’s Matteo Berrettini handed him a defeat.

However, the veteran has strained to perform of late, failing to qualify beyond the Round of 16 in ATP Masters 1000 tournaments in Madrid, Miami and Indian Wells. Monfils said that he wants to gain full fitness before making a comeback to competitive tennis.

“Hi all, I regret to inform you that I am forced to withdraw from the Open Parc de Lyon and the French Open next week. I have been bothered by a calcaneal spur since Monte-Carlo on my right heel which prevents me from moving properly on court. I have decided to undergo a small procedure this week to treat the issue before returning to competitive play,” Monfils wrote on Twitter.

Recently, Monfils had reasons to cheer as his wife and Ukrainian tennis star Elina Svitolina announced that they are set to become parents to a baby girl later this year in October.

“With a heart full of love and happiness, we are delighted to announce that we are expecting a baby girl in October,” Monfils wrote on Twitter.

The 27-year-old Svitolina also pulled out of the tournament at Roland Garros as she is undergoing therapy to address her mental health issues.
