(Reuters) – Frenchman Richard Gasquet said on Friday that he was pulling out of next week’s Monte Carlo Masters because of “complications related to COVID-19”.
The world number 49, who reached the semi-finals of the claycourt Masters in 2005, has had a tough start to the season, notably not being able to take part in the Australian Open because of a foot injury.
Gasquet, who made the announcement on Instagram, has only won two matches this year on the main tour.
