Monfils out of Davis Cup tie against U.S

PARIS (Reuters) - World number 14 Gael Monfils has pulled out of France's Davis Cup quarter-final against United States this week due to a stomach injury.

Captain Guy Forget has not yet named a replacement, the French tennis federation said in a statement on Monday.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Julien Benneteau and Michael Llodra are the other players already in the side for the tie starting on Friday on the claycourts at the Monte Carlo Country Club.
