I have been pleasantly surprised and entertained by Monfils’ press conferences this week, and his quarterfinal presser at Legg Mason last night was full of Gaelisms. Monfils perception is…well…perhaps not quite on point with what we might think of him, his personality, actions, etc.
Watch the full press conference above, but some choice quotes:
On playing Isner: [I need to] be very relaxed becayse playing against John is tough…just to chill and when I get the opportunity, take it
On his coaching situation (via @MariyaKTennis for Talk About Tennis): It’s not that difficult, I think, to coach me. Everyone knows where is my weaknesses are.
On playing on the big stage (via @linzsports for OnTheGoTennis): It will be fun tomorrow for sure…it’s on, you know…it’s a good mix, his game and my game, it’s like a pure attacker, and a go to the net and volley and run, slide, passing. Love it.
