Gael Monfils quits ATP World Tour Finals: Novak Djokovic to face David Goffin
Monfils lost to Austria's Dominic Thiem yesterday in three sets but appeared to suffer a problem during the second set.
The umpired asked after the Frenchman's health but he claimed he was fine and when Thiem posed a similar question at the net after the match's conclusion, Monfils shrugged off his concerns.
However, the 30-year-old has today pulled out of the competition with a rib muscle injury and will not face world No 2 Novak Djokovic at the O2 Arena tomorrow.
Instead, the Serbian will play first alternate David Goffin at 2pm on Thursday.
