Gael Monfils 2021: Net Worth, Salary, and Endorsements

French player Gael Monfils is known to be a highly athletic player, who's antics often entertain crowds. He turned pro back in 2004 and grabbed his first ATP title in the same year.

With that title under his belt, he vaulted up 200 places and found himself in the top 50. However, his career has often been blighted with injuries, putting him out of action for extended periods of time.

He did reach a career-high of 6 in the ATP rankings in 2016.
