Nicolas Mahut gave a bad news to his fans after his four sets loss to Juan Martin del Potro. The French player, who got in the main draw through a wild card invitation, thinks that it was his last French Open campaign in singles.
'It's a player that I like very much, and I'd be happy if my last match that I played was against him', Mahut said. 'I was lucky, because I was able to play the tournament. But afterwards, we don't know what's going to happen.
The season is a long one. I can come back, but I could fall. If I do drop very much, then I'll give preference to doubles. What I can say was that I really enjoyed the match towards the end.' Mahut plans to play doubles in Paris next year: 'I am not stopping my career now.
So I do have important objectives to play doubles for a certain time. It might be that I play back here in doubles, and that's not a problem for me.' ALSO READ: Simona Halep says going for breast reduction was her biggest sacrifice
