Gael Monfils couldn't have started his season any better, hair or tennis-wise.
The fuzzy Frenchie hit 7 aces to none in his stunning 6-4, 6-4 defeat of top baller Rafael Nadal in Doha today. It was his first career win over the Spaniard in four attempts; he'll next face Andy Roddick for a spot in the final.
La Monf must've been "treeing" today because he also won 83% of his first serves and hit zero doubles.
UPDATE: According to his site, Rafa will now be traveling directly to Melbourne where Uncle Toni will be meeting up with him next week. I'm thinking he'll be under some serious practice sessions when Uncle Toni arrives especially after this result. Break out the whips - ouch!
But doesn't Rafa look about 4-years old in the above pic? He's so versatile.
