Re: Player/Coach Changes (Henri Leconte coaching Monfils)

I don´t know...I liked LEconte, like you said, he was a true shotmaker witn an etertaining character, a nice player to watch. But I feel Monfils might benefit more from someone who has a more workman-like approach to the game. Someone like Gilbert comes to mind. I know it will never happen, but something like that would benefit Le Monf more, i think.
