  • Le Français Gaël Monfils face à son compatriote Richard gasquet le 4 juin 2017 à Roland Garros

Dernier rescapé Français dans le tableau messieurs de Roland-Garros, Gaël Monfils défie "un bon pote" en huitièmes de finale, le Suisse Stan Wawrinka, mais le défi s'annonce vertigineux contre le lauréat de l'édition 2015 qui a fait des Français ses proies favorites. En quart de finale, il affrontera Marin Cilic, vainqueur par abandon de Kevin Anderson, pour un duel qui promet d'être passionnant. Plus encore quand ils le reçoivent sur la terre-battue de Roland Garros. "Je suis bien rentré dans mon match hier mais ce n'était pas facile de revenir le lendemain, je me sentais moins bien physiquement, je n'avais pas bien récupéré, a-t-il assuré en conférence de presse". Il a bénéficié d'un total de 13 balles de break, pour n'en transformer que deux. Surtout, il a galvaudé la plupart des occasions qui se sont présentées, comme en témoigne la statistique des balles de break: 2 sur 13 ont été converties par le Français, contre 5 sur 7 pour son adversaire.

Le début du second set a commencé de manière toujours aussi décousue: break d'entrée de Monfils puis débreak dans la foulée.

Théoriquement, le Français a un avantage athlétique, mais il ne compte pas trop là-dessus vu les problèmes de jambe qu'il a eus cet hiver et qui le laissent encore loin de sa meilleure forme.

Gael Monfils, seul tricolore encore en lice, a du rendre les armes ce lundi, dominé en trois manches par un Stan Wawrinka très solide. Passé proche de l'égalisation à une manche partout, Monfils a craqué dans le troisième set. "Comme je vis en Suisse, on se voit beaucoup et nos entraîneurs (les Suédois Mikael Tillstrom pour le Français et Magnus Norman pour le Suisse) sont amis aussi", dit-il. Incapable de serrer le jeu sur les points cruciaux et pas franchement aidé par le public un peu amorphe du Philippe-Chartrier, Monfils a rapidement semblé dépassé dans ce troisième set. C'est dans le money time, à 6/5 en sa défaveur, que la "Monf " a craqué en cédant le premier set sur une terrible double faute.
