Just a few days ahead of the Australian Open 2016, French tennis star Richard Gasquet sustained an injury to his back, thereby casting doubts on his participation for the next month’s prestigious event Down Under.

The 29-year-old Gasquet, who was scheduled to kick-start the upcoming season at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha, has pulled out of the season-opening event, and could well be compelled to give the Australian Open a miss, reports puntodebreak.

There, however, has been no official confirmation of his withdrawal from the Frenchman’s entourage.

Gasquet, who recently winded up the 2015 season with a decent 43-17 record that saw him regain a place in the Top 10, represented the Philippine Mavericks at the ongoing International Premier Tennis League (IPTL) before the injury struck him.
