Gael Monfils has always had an unorthodox style of play to say the least. From no look drop shots to the dives and jumping returnd of smashes, he has a huge array of such shots. He prefers the hard court with a win percentage of 65.2, which is 4% more than in any other suface.

The Frenchman with a carribean flare in his tennis has won 6 out of his 7 ATP titles in hard courts. His best performance in the Shanghai Masters came in 2013 when he reached the quarters, beating Roger Federer along the way! He last played there 2 years ago and exited the tournament in the Round of 16.

With quite a few injuries after reaching his best rank of No.6 in 2016 and a couple of dips in form Monfils has slided to No.39. He is a player who is on an other level when he's got a point to prove. So watch out for Gael Monfils providing his injuries stay away.
