Paris, Apr 3: Gael Monfils will miss France's Davis Cup quarterfinal against the United States because of an abdominal injury on his left side.

The French tennis federation said Monday that coach Guy Forget will soon name his replacement for the 25-year-old Monfils for the contest at Monte Carlo Country Club, which starts Friday.

Monfils — who is 14th in the ATP rankings — started experiencing pain during practice Sunday and a subsequent MRI test turned up a lesion on his left oblique muscle. He will need to rest for 15 days.

The French team includes Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Julien Benneteau and Michael Llodra. The U.S. or France will face the winner of the quarterfinal between Spain and Austria.
