Humbert, injured in the left calf, withdraws from his quarter-final in Washington

There are no longer any French in the running in Washington. A few minutes after the elimination of Gaël Monfils in the round of 16 by Tallon Griekspoor (6-4, 1-6, 6-3), Ugo Humbert (36th) forfeited his quarter-final against Grigor Dimitrov (20th) , scheduled from 11 p.m. French time. The ATP 500 tournament announced it after 8 p.m. Friday. The 25-year-old Messin is injured in the left calf. “He felt a pain in his calf and the tournament doctor told him that it was better not to take any risks”, explained his physical trainer, Lapo Becherini.

Humbert, who remained on two semi-finals on the grass of Newport and the hard of Atlanta, had reached the quarters in Washington after beating Thanasi Kokkinakis (86th) then Yosuke Watanuki (99th). He must play the Masters 1000 in Toronto and Cincinnati, with a view to the US Open (August 28 – September 10).
