Pouille Pulls Out of Roland Garros


Lucas Pouille has pulled out of Roland Garros.

The 60th-ranked Frenchman is continuing rehab for a right elbow injury. Pouille said he's making progress in rehab and hopes to return to action before the end of the season, but isn't ready for the rigors of Roland Garros right now.

Roland Garros main-draw play starts September 27th.




"The rehabilitation of my right elbow is going very well and I was able to resume training recently, but it is still too fair to resume competition," Pouille posted on Twitter along with a heartbreak emoji. "Hope to see you back at the end of October. Looking forward to seeing you!"

The 26-year-old Pouille joins compatriot Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in withdrawing from the clay-court major.

Pouille has not played a main-draw Tour-level match since losing to John Isner in Shanghai last October.

The Frenchman's best French Open results are a pair of third-round appearances in 2017 and 2018. Last year, Pouille suffered an agonizing 9-7 in the fifth set loss to Martin Klizan.
