I read this somewhere too. I think the main difference and problem for Monfils is that Murray has always been aware of the condition, a bi-partite patella (2 bones in the knee not fused properly) and adjusted his game accordingly whereas it seems not to have been discovered in Monfils until much later or at least that's the impression I got from what I read.
