Gaël Monfils, éternellement surprenant — Roland-Garros

Roland-Garros: Gasquet et Monfils pour confirmer

Roland-Garros: Gasquet et Monfils pour confirmer

"Ce sera un adversaire difficile à battre", a estimé, pour sa part, Gaël Monfils. Après son match du troisième tour face à Richard Gasquet, disputé entre samedi et dimanche, le Français doit affronter ce lundi 5 juin Stanislas Wawrinka en 8ème de finale.

Monfils, 15 tête de série à Paris, menait 6-5 lors de la première manche quand le jeu a été interrompu pour la journée à Porte d'Auteuil en raison de la pluie. De son côté, Monfils ne s'est pas vraiment rassuré avant de défier Stan Wawrinka, qui n'a toujours pas perdu le moindre set depuis le début de la quinzaine. Après deux premiers tours faciles, il a profité au troisième de l'abandon de Richard Gasquet. Il va maintenant retrouver l'Argentin Juan Martin Del Potro (30e) pour un "remake" de la finale des Jeux de Rio l'été dernier, remportée quand il était au pic de sa forme. Le Suisse affrontera Marin Cilic en quarts. Après la Monf', on retrouvera un duel franco-français sur le court Philippe-Chatrier, dans le tableau féminin cette fois-ci.

Alizé Cornet et Caroline Garcia, en froid depuis différents épisodes liés à la Fed Cup, s'opposeront toutes les deux pour une place en quart de finale. Ensuite, ce sera au tour de numéro un mondial, Andy Murray d'affronter le Russe Karen Kachanov, 53e au classement ATP. Presque la routine pour un joueur qui, fort de sa capacité à se sublimer dans les tournois majeurs, a atteint ce stade de la compétition pour la quinzième fois de sa carrière, la quatrième fois à Roland-Garros.
