Gael Monfils Says They’ll Be No Party For His 28th Birthday, He Also Doesn’t Want To Play On Ashe

Tennis showman Gael Monfils turns 28 today, but the Frenchman, who was a model of restraint yesterday in dispatching countryman Richard Gasquet, says they’ll be no celebrations.

“I think I’m just going to call my mom,” Monfils said last night. “I’m born like earlier than that. I think it’s already my birthday. I was born early in France. I just call my mom. That’s more important. As a tennis player, it’s recovery, sleep, get ready for tomorrow. Is not a big birthday.”

Monfils did have one birthday request: to not play his next round on Arthur Ashe.

“To be honest, probably I play on Armstrong,” Monfils said. “If it was me, I prefer if we play on Armstrong. If I have a request, I will say tomorrow to play on Armstrong.”

Unfortunately for Monfils that request will probably fall flat. There’s slim chance Berdych-Thiem or Cilic-Simon could trump Monfils-Dimitrov for that afternoon Ashe slot on Tuesday.

Monfils also spoke about his week. “I think I’m the same. You don’t understand why, but I understand. I’m cool. As usual. Still the same. Hanging around. No coach. I’m happy. Good.”
