• Monfils vows to play through knee pain

    Monfils vows to play through knee pain Last year's home semi-finalist Gael Monfils has vowed to fight through any knee pain in order to make it to the court for his start at the French Open.

    The 23-year-old took the precaution of announcing that he would definitely play in his first-round match against American Bobby Reynolds come what may. "I don't want to pull out; I trained well," said a player bothered for months with his knee worries. "I had one day when I was a bit worried, but now I feel good."

    He then admitted: "My knee is hurting, but I'm ready for Tuesday. I realize that I have opportunities to seize. Maybe I've not had the maximum training, but I can play a few matches."

    Monfils hopes to join compatriot Gilles Simon in the second round after the seventh seed escaped with a grueling five-set win on opening day.
