PARIS: World No 11 Gael Mon­fils an­nounced on Mon­day that he was to go into re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion for in­juries to his patella and achilles heel.

“The ex­ams that I did to­day (Mon­day) have re­vealed a chon­dropa­thy of my left patella and a tear in my left achilles heel,” Mon­fils said.

“I will start a re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion pro­gram tomorrow and will do all it takes to re­cover as soon as pos­si­ble.”
