Jeremy Chardy and Adrian Mannarino suffer an injury- View: 1403 by Dzevad Mesic
The Frenchman said post-game that he was having problems while serving and that he felt pain after his opening match at the tournament against Borna Coric. World number 71 Chardy added that he will take a ''small rest,'' and then train at the Mouratoglou Academy before traveling to Barcelona to play next week's Barcelona Open.
It will be the third tournament in the same number of weeks for the French veteran. Another French tennis player, Adrian Mannarino, is having health problems. Mannarino, who was forced to quit his Monte Carlo round-of-16 clash against Lucas Pouille on Thursday, said after the match that he is bothered by a hip injury.
