Gael Monfils is having the summer of his career winning 18 of his last 20 going into today’s quarterfinal against countryman Lucas Pouille at the US Open.

Monfils lost the point and then was asked after why he pretended to do it.
“To be honest, I have no idea what happened,” said Monfils. “Sometimes those points don’t mean anything for me. Just — I don’t know. I just lose it.”
