A foot injury has forced Gael Monfils to step out of Monte-Carlo.

Monfils has withdrawn from this week’s Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters due to a foot injury.

“Hi everyone, unfortunately I have to withdraw from the Monte-Carlo tournament due to foot discomfort,” Monfils posted on Twitter. “The doctors advised me to take rest so that the problem does not worsen. I plan to come back for the Madrid tournament! See you soon.”

Monfils aims to return in time for the Mutua Madrid Open next month.
