- Starting with the latest, Monfils attempted the between-the-legs volley, because who wants play the usual boring shots? This masterpiece was against J Satral in the second round of US Open 2016, which the Frenchman won.https://twitter.com/ESPNTennis/status/771099909927862272
- In the 1st round of US Open against Muller, Monfils accidentally collided with the clock that almost fell on him. Monfils should owe the US Open a new clock. This is a one of the most unusual accidents to have taken place in the tournament.

- It was dance off between Monfils and compatriot Laurent Lokoki at the French Open Kids’ Day in 2014. As if his shot making skills during matches is not enough, dancing comes easy to the Frenchman. This video will prove that he is the most talented player on tour.
- Like Rafa, Monfils gives his all and is relentless in his efforts. This shot at Australian Open 2015 against Pouille is sublime and a little too hard to believe for the eyes. It exemplifies sheer class of the World No.10.
Imagine the dance moves at a @Gael_Monfils party?
