Paris: Flamboyant French star Gael Monfils could miss the Davis Cup final against Switzerland after suffering a knee injury at the Metz ATP tournament on Saturday.

Monfils was hurt in his 7-6 (8/6), 6-2 defeat to Joao Sousa in the semi-finals of the hardcourt tournament and will undergo an MRI scan on Tuesday to assess the damage.

"I did not want to get injured and that`s what has happened," said Monfils.

"I will have an MRI on Tuesday and hope that it`s nothing serious."

France will host Switzerland in Lille from November 21-23 in the Davis Cup final.

Portuguese sixth seed Sousa will face Belgium`s eighth-seeded David Goffin who defeated Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany 7-6 (7/4), 6-3 in Sunday`s Metz final.
