Gasquet out of Monte Carlo Masters

Gasquet out of Monte Carlo Masters

Richard Gasquet withdrew from the Monte Carlo Masters 2014 after failing to shake off a back injury.

Gasquet hoped to take part in the tournament after returning to training this week.

"I only picked up the racket again on Tuesday, very steadily. But I've been in pain since yesterday and today, after 20 minutes of training, I couldn't carry on," Gasquet said on Saturday. "I could hardly even carry my bag. I thought things would be fine after 15 days without doing anything. But no, not at all."

His absence means Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, initially facing Ernest Gulbis in the first round, moves up to ninth seed and has a bye into the second round.

Monfils claims Open Sud de France 2014 title

Gael Monfils defeated Richard Gasquet 6-4, 6-4 to win the Open Sud de France 2014 title.

"This is unbelievable for me," said Monfils. "I had some back problems at the beginning of the week and I didn't know if I was going to be able to play, so to now be with the trophy is pretty crazy. I have been elevating my game match after match and I am extremely proud in the way I played today. I really enjoy playing here in Montpellier. I love the atmosphere there is in this arena."

He claimed €77,315 in prize money and 250 Ranking points.

"It was great to be in final here once again," said Gasquet. "I am extremely disappointed to have lost in the final, but that’s tennis. I need to congratulate Gael because he’s played unbelievable all week. I wasn’t able to read his serve, he was serving bullets all match. My only way out was to try to push him to a tie-break and wait for him to start making mistakes. But it didn’t happen."

I could have lost one set, either the second one or the third one. The first match on the Central Court, it's always like this. It's always difficult. You have to know how to play. He was playing well. I'd say it's a good match for me."
