Great thread, he is a clown
Gael Monfils plays basketball
Are Francians proud of this guy?
That picture of Monfils and Federer in Miami is classic! LOL'd right away!
He has the game to be #1 in the world, and he's a goof off.
Sorry if I don't accept mediocrity because "it's fun".
This is probably my favorite thread on TW BTW.
I trust that it will recieve periodic bumps for as long as Monfils is still playing ('cause we all know he'll never change )
Can Sliderman get into the top 10 this year ?
With his crazy movements i wouldn't be surprised if he does Parkour.
Wanna a good reason this guy's won 3 career singles titles? Those images are a start.
And your off hand...
I wonder why Nike dropped Monfils. The guys shoes get more airtime than anything.
could i get a link to a video of him doing those against verdasco? the highlights didn't show that.
Last time i saw Monfils in a music video by a guy called Solveig, kissing a girl while attending a Roland Garros match between two clowns. Djoker also made a cmeo appearance in this video.
you'd think that nike would be better but if you compare the apparel nike gave monfils to the apparel kswiss gave monfils than monfils is in the advantage.
I "hate" the french, but i love the freaking dude, the one and only out of the whole population in France.
He Is Simply Awesome !!!! that is the guy who give 200% into the game, especially against Fed yesterday when facing 5 match points....... the guy is an awesome athletic.
How is this thread dead?
Last night at the SAP Open Gael was being his usual strange self.
Immediately after breaking Kendrick, he called a trainer to have his LEFT wrist taped.
... Then he hit some 1-handed backhands.... one of which was a clean dtl winner.
Oh, and at one point he slipped and fell.. and then just lay there for 30 seconds for no apparent reason.
I was 5 feet behind clowny boy when he stopped to tie his shoes and Gasgay stood there in total caulk shock.
Those new pics of him are from the Sampras exhibition i believe, perfect occasion for him to clown around. The next time there's a big charity exhibition they ought to pencil him in gives him a chance to strut around like a peacock and do what he does best clowning around.
Can't stop laughing at all these pics of him on the ground.
So many different possibilities of how he got to that stage !
Would a regular tweener be tame by Monfils standards? I like the facial expression anyway
I like Monfils, quite a bit. Fun to watch, and, lest we forget, he DOES have a great game! Someday, though, there is going to be a dramatic on court injury that he experiences. I hope I am not watching that match.
IMO, folks that "don't like Monfils" 9 times out of 10 have not seen him play in person.....
Go to a tourney this year...Cincinatti, Montreal, US Open etc..... watching Monfils practice sessions are worth the price of admission...
and those black/white window-payne k-swiss shorts were sweet.
Did TW ever sell those?
Yes and no.
I think you are right, if people say they 'can't stand Monfils'. Not sure how that is possible.
One could say "I don't like his game". Fair statement. Or "he wastes a lot of energy". Another fair statement. Or "he has the talent to be Top 5". Fair statement.
But not standing him? Too entertaining.
Watching highlights from the 2009 Metz final and was reminded of this thread
From the end of this point - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJaZHxyxWCc&feature=player_detailpage#t=248s
He's using the force, what else?
LMAO He looks like Dave Chappell in some comedy skit
Mmm mmn b!tch! :lol:
^ well played sir
I wonder if he was ever mistaken for Steve Urkel in his youth.
I wish he would put some of the effort from his trick shots into actual match play...
but hey he is still one of the most exciting players ever, especially when he gets a win.
Get rid of the pusher forehand and add a fearhand. Keep the trick shots and awesome clothes and you get the best entertainment.
I thought he played Urkel!
I cut up some new video from an older Monfils match. Tell me if there is really any reason he lets go of his racket when approaching for the volley. It's all about the show !
picture of his last monfilserie, live from madrid...
Just getting in some practice before the clownery show <3
Should be getting some centre court action at Roland Garros time for him to give us some new moves.
Do I even want to know....
When is his game going to mature, we know he can do it.
Only gael could do this stuff on a court.
Watching him practice in person is hilarious. I walk in to armstrong at the USO to watch him and Beneteau. One minute he's serving lights out in the set he's playing with julian. Then on a changover while julian decides to take a break and talk with his coach, Gael is trying to hit a ball over the net with his grip. The whole time Roger Rasheed has this WTF look on his face.
This is my favorite thread on the site!
