• Monfils exits Asia with knee troubles

    Monfils exits Asia with knee troubles The tennis future of Gael Monfils could rest with a knee injury diagnosis this week in Paris after the flamboyant Frenchman withdrew from this week's Japan Open to return to France for medical consultations.

    Monfils only returned to the ATP last month after four months out with his problem, playing a Metz semifinal followed by a quarterfinal in Bangkok. But a Tokyo test proved to be a step too far, with Monfils heading home in pain after losing to compatriot Gilles Simon in Thailand with his fitness clearly a question.

    Monfils, his ranking down to 44th, has been bothered for months by a split patella in his right knee; his injury is not the first for his fragile knees.

    He and new coach Patrick Chamagne took the decision to call off the Asian swing. Some reports from Paris now indicate that surgery and the subsequent long rehab period might be a very real possibility.
