Second-seeded Lleyton Hewitt defeated French teenager Gael Monfils 6-3, 7-6 (3) at the Paris Masters on Tuesday, then heaped praise on the former junior champion. A day earlier, the 18-year-old Monfils ousted Thomas Enqvist at the $3.1 million tournament. He traded shots for most of the match with Hewitt, a two-time Grand Slam winner, to the delight of a packed crowd at the Bercy indoor arena.
