Second Serve


Despite Gael Monfils’ recent success on the grass courts of Halle, the world No. 67 says he is withdrawing his wild-card request at Wimbledon, citing personal reasons.

The Frenchman’s absence marks the fourth time in five years he will completely miss the Wimbledon event, where his best result has been reaching the third round.

En route to his quarterfinal appearance at Halle, Monfils defeated qualifier Jan Hernych 6-2, 6-3, setting up a clash with the winner of the match between Tommy Haas and Ernests Gulbis.

Monfils' History at Wimbledon:

2012: Missed because of knee injury.

2011: Lost in the third round to Lukasz Kubot.

2010: Lost in the third round to Lleyton Hewitt.

2009: Withdrew due to injured left wrist.

2008: Withdrew due to right shoulder injury.

2007: Lost in the third round to Nikolay Davydenko.
