Gael Monfils reached the semis of the US Open for the first time but he wants more.
The Frenchman will face Novak Djokovic today for a place in the final but his record againt the wolrd number 1 is 0-12.
Would you bet on Monfils to take this win?
Monfils is a real showman, along the tournament he has collided with a courtside clock that came close to falling on top of him, he celebrated his birthday by playing a game of "boules" on rain-lashed practice courts.
"I play tennis because I have fun. I play tennis because I love the sport. If not, I wouldn't wake up every morning and train, because most people think that jumping or doing trick shots is gifted. Yes, it's gifted, but it's also a lot of work."
Nole has won two Grand Slams this year and is the number one by far. He should be the fresher, having completed just two full matches in five rounds but he is carefull about his opponent.
"Gael's one of the few players that I will definitely pay a ticket to watch," said Djokovic.
"He seems more focused at this time of his career and I am definitely expecting a tough battle."
