Richard Gasquet has pulled out of next week's Madrid Masters with an ongoing back injury and will also miss Rome the following week, reports L'Equipe.

That puts the Frenchman in doubt for the French Open, where he reached the fourth round last year. Gasquet will train in Barcelona with new coach Sergi Bruguera, reports the newspaper, and see if the problem improves enough for him to take part in his country's Grand Slam.

Gasquet has not played since losing to Roger Federer at Miami, and pulled out of Davis Cup and Monte Carlo with the injury.
