I regret that American Sam Querrey lost in 4 sets today to Gael Monfils of France, but I reserve a soft spot in my heart for Monfils, who is so very talented and, with today’s victory, moved into Wimbledon’s Round of 16. Monfils will meet No. 8 seed Kevin Anderson of South Africa, who has made three trips to Wimbledon’s Round of 16 (2014, 2015, 2017), and is currently on a roll. It would be wonderful, though, to see Monfils win a tennis major before he retires. In 2004, Monfils was crowned the ITF Youth World Champion and was ranked the No. 1 junior in the world, having won the 2004 Wimbledon, Australian and French junior singles titles. What a great accomplishment!
