Gianni Mina or Gael Monfils?

Wow! Check out the resemblance between Nadal's first opponent at the French Open, Gianni Mina, and Gael Monfils.

Their looks are not the only thing that they have in common.

They both play for France and their parents are both from the French Caribbean.

Also, they both wore Nike until Monfils changed to K-Swiss.

I have many favorite male tennis players for many different reasons, most of which have nothing to do with how they play tennis!

Re: Gianni Mina or Gael Monfils?

Wow. It's the first time I see Gianni Mina. In all honesty I expected him to look err... more Italian

They look very similar!

Any one ever seen the guy play?

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

Re: Gianni Mina or Gael Monfils?

Not very often you see black tennis players.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

David Nalbandian

Re: Gianni Mina or Gael Monfils?

The two pics are confusing! From the youtube clip I watched, I think they have similar styles of play.

Re: Gianni Mina or Gael Monfils?

The look very similar my ass! You must belong to the group of people who can't tell the difference between black people and think they all look alike

Nalbandian/Davydenko/Berdych/Gulbis/Nadal rock, the rest is more or less sucky.

Re: Gianni Mina or Gael Monfils?

Its not just looks, but playing style as well.

Mina reminded me of an aggressive Monfils, yet he did the same moonball thing Monfils does against Nadal. They are like clones in every way. Mina even has like an Italian version of Gael's name.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

I'm black and thought they looked alike. Then again, I saw him on the TV screen and had just woken up.

No, because I think they look alike too.
