Gasquet out of Monte Carlo Open

The Frenchman's 2014 campaign was hampered by a lower back injury known as Maigne’s syndrome. As a result he did not take part in much of the clay-court season, but was able to turn out at the French Open where he was knocked out in the third round.

Gasquet will once again be looking to return in time for Roland Garros, but at this stage it is unclear if the 28-year-old will return to fitness in time.

The world number 28 has a 10-4 record thus far in the 2015 season, and has claimed one title, the Open Sud de France in Montpellier.
