Husband Svitolina could not remember the taste of victory. Now in Lyon
French tennis player Gael Monfils (No. 386 ATP) in the first round of the tournament in Lyon (France) was close to defeating Pedro Cachin (No. 63 ATP), but he could not finish the opponent.
In the first set of the first round meeting, Monfils, who, we recall, is the husband of Ukrainian tennis player Elina Svitolina, won with a score of 6:2. But he could not develop the advantage, allowing the opponent to return to the game at first (6:3), and then win the decisive game – 6:4.
Gael Monfils in 2023 has not yet won a single match on the court. On his account there is a victory in the first round of the Challenger in Ostrava over compatriot Evan Furness (No. 279 ATP), but Gael got it on the opponent’s refusal in the second set.
By the way, Gael Monfils was able to enter the tournament in Lyon on a wild card.
