    Stop playing like it is a friendly game. Stop going to the net to hit the ball softly, play hard and you will win every game. Good luck to you

    I think Monfis can be a number one world tennis player. He has so much talent. I wonder if he really knows how much pure talent he possesses as a professional tennis player. I pray that he will move forward to that end. Monfis keep up the good work.

    I love Monfils! He looks like a sweet cherubic angel. He is beguiling and eloquent and is consistent with driving the ball right down the line. He can twist the knife of precision against a more aggressive but bullish opponent. Best of all, he can dance around grunting beasts across the net. He rallies so well! I love Monfils!

    Gael Monfils Attack is the best form of defence, you need to Attack more, you are just too defensive, why do you need to play so far pass the baseline that is why you are running around so much Gael Monfils just remember that you are a professional player you do not need to play so far pass the baseline, when you are rallying you need to come into the net a lot earlier, as the game start you need to go straight on the Attack, try to keep near the baseline that way you do not need to cover so much ground that is the way you can come into the net a lot quicker or earlier.

    Enjoyed watching Gael play in US Open 2010. Didn't like the hair. He looks sooooo good in braids or close hair cut. Improve image. Best of luck in closing games.
