Richard Gasquet, who was about to launch the French Marcq-en-Baroeul preparatory camp on Monday, announced on Monday his package to the Davis Cup finals against Croatia (23-25 November).
The best French ATP (26th), 32, Captain Yannick Noah at the end of the last list, did not specify why he was abandoning.
"I am extremely disappointed to inform paketistani finals. Deeply to my teammates to get a new win", simply a tweeted player.
France lost one of its best players, including the calming end of the season. After being eliminated in the second round of the Paris Masters 1000 against the American Jack Sock, however, he felt boring but wiped the question by making sure he was ready to "1000%"play the final.
Captain Yannick Noah, who has selected five other players for this finale (Tsonga, Puglia, Chardy, Mahut and Herbert), announced on Tuesday his choice.
