Gael Monfils announces changes after rough start to comeback

Gael Monfils says he is "giving my absolute best to regain my top form" as the Frenchman announced some changes to his coaching staff. After missing the majority of the 2022 season, Monfils returned to action in March at the Indian Wells Masters.

Since returning, Monfils is 1-6 - the Frenchman competed in three ATP tournaments and three Challenger tournaments. After a rough start to his comeback, 36-year-old Monfils split with coach Gunter Bresnik and also announced the department of some other members of his team.

With new faces in his box, Monfils is hoping to turn the page and start doing much better.

"Hello everybody, I hope you all are doing well. It's been a while since I last checked in.

I took some time for myself and had the opportunity to spend quality moments with my family. Additionally, I've been practicing with a new team that you will soon see in my upcoming tournament (Lyon ). I apologize for not introducing them to you earlier; time just slipped away from me.

First and foremost, I would like to express my gratitude to Gunther Bresnik, Richard Ruckelshausen, and Dominik Distelberger for the incredible work we have accomplished together during this period. Thank you so much, guys, for your dedication and efforts.

I also want to extend my heartfelt thanks to one of my best friends, Natho, for his unwavering support and commitment to my well-being. His treatments and support mean the world to me," Monfils tweeted.

Monfils, a former world No 6, wants to make one final push before retiring. "I'm giving my absolute best to regain my form, and I understand it won't be an easy journey.

It will take time, and I am willing to be patient and persistent," Monfils noted. This week, Monfils is competing at an ATP 250 event in Lyon.
