• Gasquet out of French Davis Cup side with shoulder injury

    Gasquet out of French Davis Cup side with shoulder injury After a good run in Dubai, Richard Gasquet pulled out of his country's upcoming Davis Cup tie against Austria.

    The clay court laid down in a spare aircraft hanger at Vienna airport will look particularly uninviting to the French Davis Cup squad this weekend after Richard Gasquet was added to the list of injury pullouts for the
    visiting nation, a former champion in the worldwide team event.

    The No. 33 withdrew with a right shoulder injury, leaving captain Guy Forget seriously pondering his remaining choices after earlier pullouts from Gale Monfils (wrist injury) and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who announced this month that he is suffering with a hernia after missing months last season due to knees.

    "Richard Gasquet must observe a period of rest and is thus forced to forfeit," read a French Federation statement.

    Gasquet most recently played in the Dubai Championships, where he lost comprehensively to Roger Federer in a semi-final. Forget will now have to bring on board 51st-ranked Jeremy Chardy, a Dubai first-round singles loser who played the doubles final with Feliciano Lopez.

    The remainder of the French team will likely consist of No. 33 Gilles Simon, 27th-ranked Michael Llodra and Julien Benneteau. Austria are fully fit, with No. 10 Jurgen Melzer leading a squad which also includes Stefan Koubek , Martin Fischer and Julian Knowle in doubles.
