La Monf continues dream run in Paris, joins shirtless brigade

Gael Monfils is the toast of Paris today - and if anyone says they saw this one coming, they're lying!

"La Monf" out-thought and out-ran and weary David Ferrer at Roland Garros today in a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-1 win to reach his first Grand Slam semifinal where Roger Federer awaits. He also became the first Frenchman in 7 years to make it past the quarterfinals and could punctuate the 25th anniversary of Yannick Noah's triumph in Paris with a title run here.

La Monf also became the newest member of the shirtless brigade after the match throwing his Nike shirt into the crowd. Afterwards, the Frenchie donned a t-shirt with his nickname emblazoned on the front.

  1. Just a comment on the muscles: it's part DNA.
    It's funny, some parts of the world you have major muscle definition even before you exercise (e.g. half of my high school class) and I guess Monfils is a model of what happens when you hit hundreds of balls daily on top of that. Sinewy perfection. Or just sinewy :)

  2. no you're right t, his definition is impressive
