Gonzalez Withdraws From Roland Garros
by ATP Staff|
The Chilean Monday tweeted: "Unfortunately today I withdrew myself from Roland Garros, it's a shame, but I'm doing everything possible to comeback and feel better".
Currently No. 370 in the South African Airways 2011 ATP Rankings, Gonzalez made his ATP World Tour comeback last month after eight months on the sidelines following right hip surgery. After reaching the second round at the Serbia Open 2011 (l. Lopez), González retired at the ATP Challenger tournaments in Prague (SF against Rosol) and Bordeaux (1st Rd against Eysseric) because of problems in his knee.
It will be the first time that Gonzalez, 2009 Roland Garros semi-finalist (l. Soderling), will miss the second Grand Slam of the year since his debut in 2001. He is expected to be missing for at least three weeks.
