Entries in Gael Monfils (22)


Quick Q & A with Gael Monfils

If you could only have 1 meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Dombres, it is a creole meal from Guadeloupe.

What is one thing that you would change about yourself?
I’d be taller.


How tall?
Like in meters, we’ll say 2.08, 2.10.  [That is 6’9 and 6’10 for my American peeps.]

How happy would your rate yourself right now on a scale from 1-10?
A 10!

Serena, Azarenka, Monfils and Redfoo Do Karaoke

Serena Williams, Gael Monfils and couple Victoria Azarenka and Redfoo indulged in some Karaoke before their charity exhibition. 'Vika For The Cause' benefited the Children's Hospital in Los Angeles and featured a match where twenty lucky people had the chance to play tennis with the pros. Vika followed that up with a youth clinic where her and the other players gave kids coaching and hit with them. I'm thinking the tennis was probably of a higher quality than the singing!


The Most Amazing Scoreboard in Tennis History

You might wonder why I think this is the most awesome scoreboard in history.  No, it has nothing to do with an amazing point or anything that will go down in the history books.  But, just read the first line of the scoreboard out loud and then take a look below at who was playing.

Highlights from the French Open Day 4

Love him or hate him, Ernests Gulbis, who lost a tight four setter to Gael Monfils, is certainly an interesting character. His latest soundbite? Gulbis has said the top four are 'boring.' 

"Tennis today badly lacks characters. I respect Roger [Federer], Rafa [Nadal], Novak [Djokovic] and [Andy] Murray, but for me all four of them are boring players. Their interviews are boring. Honestly, they are really boring. I often go on YouTube to watch interviews. I quickly stopped watching tennis interviews. It's a joke. It was Federer who started this trend. He has a superb image as a perfect Swiss gentleman. I repeat that I respect Federer, but I don't like the way that young players try to imitate him."

Highlights from the French Open 2013 Day 1 & 2


Lleyton Hewitt never fails to bring a good show, and that he did yesterday against Frenchman Gilles Simon.  Not only did it go to 5 sets, but Rusty came back from 5-0 in the 5th to bring it to 5-5, but it ended up being all too much for the former #1 and Gilles prevailed 7-5 in the 5th.  And the sweetest part?  Gilles gave his flowers to his mother, (it was Mothers' day in France), apologizing for the rollercoaster he put her through during this match.

The Week Ahead

Play is currently underway in Sydney, Hobart, and the Heineken Open.  It should be an amazing week, but the best thing about the week ahead......there are only 7 more days until the beginning of the Australian Open!!!

Let the countdown begin.


Reading Room

If you've been hiding under a rock........Andy Murray has hired Ivan Lendl as his full time coach!

Rafael Nadal, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, and Gael Monfils brought in the New Year together as they sang to Coldplay.  It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

After the New Year, Rafa enjoyed a candlelit date in Doha with Roger Federer.

Li Na helped raise awareness for Native Animal Rescue.  She is adorable when she says, "It’s my first time (holding an animal) and it’s one of the best experiences of my whole life."

Who does the Macarena to Adele?  Victoria Azarenka and Caroline Wozniacki do.
