Monfils splits from coach
Former France number one Gael Monfils has parted company with his coach Patrick Chamagne, his agent has confirmed.
The 26-year-old reached a career-high ranking of seven last year but a series of injuries and persistent problem with his right knee has seen him drop to 78th during 2012.
The decision to end his 16-month association with Chamagne comes after Monfils ended his season early last month.
Monfils said in a statement released by his agent Nicolas Lamperin: "I want to thank Patrick for his investment and his presence at my side during this period. I wish him much success in his future endeavours."
