Gael Monfils in Danger of Missing the Tournament

The French player Gael Monfils is the victim of a really annoying knee injury and he might miss this year's grand slam from his home country.

He is 22 years old and he already reached the tournament's semifinals last year. He is currently ranked 10th and he was forced to withdraw from the Barcelon Open, so he has a lot of points to defend in the ATP rankings.gael monfils

This wouldn't be the first time he has to miss a tournament either, as he suffers from the Osgood-Schlatter disease, a persistent disease that causes chronic knee pain. He will surely not be playing at the clay Masters tournaments from Madrid and Rome, but he still keeps hope that he will make it to Roland Garros, even if it means that he will be entering the torunament with very little practice on clay.
