Gael Monfils is celebrating his birthday by kicking water at people, and playing 'closest to the line', because duh. pic.twitter.com/ebJ6sYjGUC— Faizal Khamisa (@SNFaizalKhamisa) September 1, 2016
Gael Monfils has been having a hell of a week at the US Open. He broke a clock, he’s getting creative and hoppy during matches, and it’s his birthday week. The good news: He doesn’t have a game. The bad news: It’s raining. But Monfils doesn’t mind at all, which is why he brought two other friends for a wet game of pétanque (the French version of bocce) and a little bit of water fighting through kicks.
Happy birthday, Gael Monfils! Please dry yourself off later.
