Gael Monfils: Has split with coach

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."
