Gael Monfils Wins Again: Is this Proof of French Worldwide Dominance???

Well this kid has done it again. Now he just needs to win the US Open to have won all four Grand Slams. Is He gonna be a superstar Junior to become an average Pro or is he going to dominant on the Pro Tour too?

Superstar junior that's all. Why ? He's french...
(so many french players were good on junior tour and did nothing after)

"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".

Guy Forget

@@ Andy Roddick was ITF World Champion in 2000 {won USO & AO Juniors}-->> his career is going well so far!
Also Stefan Edberg won the 'Junior SLAM'(AO, FO, Wimby, USO) in 1981 or 82...

Sometimes the Juniors do prove to be great players in the senior ranks & sometimes they don't~~ atleast Gael Monfils is proving he's a very good competitor & competant on different surfaces^^ so he's got as good a chance as anyone!

let me take you back to the year 2004, its February and a man named FrogBurger emerges from deep meditation to predict that Gael Monfils and other young Frenchmen will Rise!

Though I know you're totally right with what you've written between brackets Marine, I have to say that Gaël is at the very beginning of his pro career. Give him time to prove those stats about French players wrong- or to prove them right! But don't go too fast. Don't sentence him before the trial has taken place.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Dreams are free.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

You're right, dreams are free. But I think that a dream is more positive than a sentence based only on what others have done before.

He will be another Gustavo Kuerten at best.

As much as I like many of the French players, I have to give a to this post. I thought I was on WTAWorld for a moment.

Too many of those moments recently.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Gael Monfils Wins Again: Is this Proof of French Worldwide Dominance???

Yeah maybe, but i can tell you it takes a lot of time , energy and patience to pick a rising star. Many people doubted Gael and Richard , but you know, ive been going to RG for years I know my stuff. I saw them when they were juniors saw them grow up etc. When the Carvel Flurry came out, it wasnt like a red carpet reception, but i gave it time and now its a household name. I also predicted that one day, people would carry around "portable hand held phones" and that happened too. i was wrong about the Cabbage patch dolls but hey, that can happen to the best of us.

There won't be French dominance worldwide in tennis any time soon.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
