Wawrinka évince Monfils, dernier Français en lice

06 Juin, 2017, 11:12 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

D'autant que le Suisse n'a absolument pas peur de se mesurer aux Français à Roland Garros: en neuf rencontres disputées face à des tricolores, il ne s'est incliné qu'une fois, face à Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. En point d'orgue, le match de Kristina Mladenovic, tandis que chez les hommes Rafael Nadal et Novak Djokovic sont de sortie. Depuis, le Suisse a grandi, remporté trois épreuves du Grand Chelem, alors que le Français trimballe encore cette image de joueur capable de tout, du meilleur (il fut demi-finaliste à la Porte d'Auteuil en 2008), trop rarement, comme du pire, avec une inconstance et une fragilité devenues sa marque de fabrique. Monfils disputera son 8de finale ce lundi face au Suisse Stanislas Wawrinka et il ne se sent pas bien vaillant: "Je suis fatigué, là". 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. "C'est pour ça qu'on l'appelle Mozart.", a expliqué au micro de France Télévisions Gaël Monfils qui devient le dernier rescapé français dans le tableau masculin. Son adversaire, Richard Gasquet, a abandonné la partie au cours du troisième set (7-6 (7/5), 5-7, 4-3), touché à la cuisse droite. Dans le tie-break de la deuxième, il a sauvé trois balles de set d'affilée, avant de s'incliner. À la puissance de Wawrinka, notamment en revers où le n°3 mondial a trouvé des angles incroyables, Monfils a opposé sa défense tout en glissades plus ou moins maîtrisées. Fatigué par ses longues courses, il n'avait plus l'énergie pour résister dans la dernière manche. Au final, c'est un match frustrant pour lui comme pour moi.
