Richard Gasquet couldn’t even try to help Team France defend the “final” Davis Cup last month.
So you know he wasn’t in good shape.
And the groin-area injury that has bothered the 32-year-old since the Paris Indoors already has him out of the Doha tournament, which begins in less than a week.
L’Équipe reports that the No. 1-ranked Frenchmen hasn’t even picked up a racket this off-season. And he’s officially out of the Australian Open, too.
Gasquet was beaten in the third round in Melbourne this year, and reached the final in Montpellier in early February.
