Gael Monfils to miss French Open
PARIS -- Gael Monfils has withdrawn from the French Open because of a right knee injury.
The 13th-ranked Monfils was hurt in his second-round loss to Brian Baker at the Open de Nice on Wednesday. He is expected to need three weeks to recover.
Roland Garros organizers say the 2008 semifinalist will be replaced in the draw by a "lucky loser" -- a player eliminated in the qualifying tournament.
