It goes without saying that Gael Monfils is a pure entertainer. Apart from flaunting his acrobatic moves time and again, he turned lefty on court during practice. He also hid behind a table during a press conference not very long ago. Despite, he continues to find new ways to amaze his fans.

During his first-round match against Lloyd Harris at the Chengdu Open on Tuesday, Monfils showed off his enviable acrobacy. It happened at the outset of the second set, when the Frenchman lost his balance before regourpoing remarkably to continue the rally.

Much to his dismay, however, Monfils couldn’t win the point as he smashed a forehand right into the net. And his performance started to fade after that, losing the next two sets to be handed a 3-6 6-2 6-1 defeat by his unheralded opponent from South Africa.
