The World Number 18 tennis player, Gael Monfils received a 3-6, 6 -3, 6-0 victory over the American, Reilly Opelka. The 21-year-old American received plenty for leaving the Frenchman stranded on the Portuguese tennis court.
Opelka was serving in the serving set at 6-3, 2-5 (40/30), the wind on the clay court averted the direction of his serve and delivered an unexpected ace. It was the uncanniest ace in ATP tennis. Monfils cheerfully responded with a ‘thumbs up’ and later, closed out the match.
