Hit a ‘mundane’ smash? Not for Gael Monfils.
So he demonstrated against Tommy Haas in Halle 2013 when the German’s weak backhand lobbed high up in the air for Monfils to smash the pants off it!! Even Haas had given up the point and was just watching where the Frenchman would hit it. But to everyone’s surprise, Monfils let it bounce between his legs before turning around to hit an overhead 180-degree smash. While it evoked gasps from the crowd, Haas managed to retrieve it and won the point.
Well, Monfils wouldn’t have cared about not winning the point at all.
