As if Gael Monfils’ matches aren’t entertaining, there was an additional factor that added to the entertainment at the Qatar Open on Tuesday.

During the Frenchman’s first-round clash against Paolo Lorenzi of Italy, a cat appeared on court, briefly interrupting the play on Centre Court.

In a video that surfaced on social media, the feline can be seen hanging around the changeover seats before an official stepped in and took her away.

The play resumed soon after as Monfils – playing his first match since the US Open in September – went on to clinch a 6-3 3-6 6-4 victory.

Moving on, Monfils, a former world No. 6 and a two-time Grand Slam semi-finalist, is scheduled to take on Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff for a place in the quarter-finals.
