He’s the Michael Jordan of tennis. He doesn’t jump, he flies. He doesn’t slide, he dances. If you could score three-pointers in tennis, he would… well, in UTS you actually can, so watch out! Gael Monfils, “La Monf” is arguably the most spectacular tennis player on tour. Jump-shots, tweeners, powerful flat winners, lobs, stretched out wonder-shots. You name it, he hits it. And then comes his signature “Wakanda Forever” post-match salute. But he’s much more than a show, he’s a champion. The 6’4’’ Frenchman won a total of 10 singles titles and reached a career-high of World No. 6. He competed in 2 Grand Slam semifinals (2016 US Open and 2008 Roland-Garros), as well as 7 quarterfinals. With his fun fiery personality on and off the court, can “La Monf” become a UTS fan-favourite?Watch live
Gael’s missile-bound forehand comes out when we least expect it. His speed and power will leave you in awe.
6’4’’ tall, Monfils can create both power and angles with his serve.
Making “La Monf” tired? Impossible. He has the physique of a super-athlete. He can run around the court, jump up high, and generate unexpected power.
