Gael-Monfils-2009-Doha_1749746The French Gael Monfils will look to keep advancing at the 2014 US Open as he matches with unknown Colombian Alejandro Gonzalez, this Friday in the second round of the tournament.

Monfils has never advanced more than the quarterfinals in the US open, but he might have a chance to do it this year as the brackets are wide open.

It took the Frenchman two hours to beat Jared Donaldson 6-4 6-2 6-4; he seems calm and ready for the next challenge, considering he had to make some kind of effort on his first round game.

Monfils is one of the most entertaining figures in tennis; his style is not regular; even the biggest stars believe it.

“Gael is Gael,” the number one tennis player in the ATP ranking, Novak Djokovic said. “That’s what he does. He loves jumping around, sliding, he’s very unpredictable. You don’t know what his next move is, so that’s why he’s so interesting. I said before that he’s probably the only guy in the world, tennis player, that I would pay a ticket to watch the match. He’s really fun to watch but not so much fun to play against.”

Alejandro Gonzalez ranks 100 in the ATP Rankings and has an 8-18 record on his short career and 1-3 when playing Grand Slam games.

The US Open betting odds listed Gonzalez +700 to win the match, and Monfils is -1200, in the tennis money line.
