Viewers of Thursday night Rogers Cup action in Montreal were treated to a moment of pure gamesmanship from the ever-captivating World No. 7, France's Gael Monfils. Midway through his third set against No. 15 Viktor Troicki, Monfils goes and loses his racquet after a routine hit. Problematic? Un peu, but not for Monfils, who proceeds to block the easy return from Troicki with his racquet-less body like it's the most natural reaction in the world:â†µ
Monfils went on to take the match, 3-6, 7-6 (0), 7-6 (5), and advances to face some guy named "Novak Djokovic" in the Montreal quarterfinals. For more Canadian coverage, check out our Rogers Cup StoryStream.
