Not just that but he's dumb for being such a physically robust individual and still playing like a pusher most of the time
that's true, there is no good excuse for Monfil's lack of aggression on the court. it's like he's afraid to take risks, bravery is the problem. it's weird to be associating strongly the trait bravery with this sport but obviously it is a huge part of it and with it Gael would be able to dominate players and have much more success.
have you ever seen a player who has such talent but does not seem to comprehend how to channel it in matches or how to schedule himself/behave outside of tennis? he's dumb in matches and out, and what makes him even more dumb is he messes up over and over and over again despite having a team that is payed to remind him constantly how to not screw up.
thats pretty friggan dumb
