Gael Monfils admits he may forced to reconsider his future after latest injury blow


Gael Monfils’ brutal luck has continued as the Frenchman was forced to retire injured his Miami Masters first-round match.

Tied with Ugo Humbert at three games apiece in the first set, Monfils went to the net and shook Humbert’s hand with his left hand.

Last May, Monfils had surgery on his heel.

When Monfils returned to action in August, he suffered a foot injury at the Montreal Masters.

After being sidelined for six months, Monfils made his comeback at the Indian Wells Masters.

“We will have the exams and see what’s happening,” Monfils told AFP.

Monfils: I’ll try to continue but I have to see If I can 

“I don’t know, you know. I don’t know. Of course, you have goals and you want to achieve some goals, but sometimes you have to have a step back and see. And then, of course, if one day I cannot anymore, I cannot anymore. But I will do everything to keep playing,” Monfils said.

Monfils, who is now 36 years old, hasn’t had much luck with his health over the last few years. 

But Monfils still loves the game and that’s one of the reasons why he refused to simply retired when he suffered two serious injuries last year.

“The love of the sport, you know, the love of the sport. I love what I’m doing. I love my sport. You know, I could have stopped a long time ago, but I still enjoy it. I’m still enjoying myself,” Monfils explained.

In 2024, the Olympics will be staged in Paris. 

Recently, Monfils confirmed he would love to compete at the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Also, Monfils admitted he would love to be healthy and a fine form when the time comes for the Paris Olympics. 

But Monfils is having a hard time staying healthy and it remains to be seen how long he will be sidelined this time.
