Vienna - Australian Marinko Matosevic was forced to withdraw from the Austrian Open on Wednesday with a sore right shoulder prior to his first-round match with Gael Monfils.

France's sixth seed Monfils will instead make his start at the Stadthalle later against Czech Jaroslav Pospisil, ranked 214 and a lucky loser from the qualifying rounds.

The exit of Marinko and the Tuesday defeat of Lleyton Hewitt by Canadian Vasek Pospisil - no relation of Jaroslav's - ended Australian involvement at the indoor event.
