Gael Monfils says that his fitness coach, Patrick Chamagne, will be his main coach for at least for the next few weeks. The seventh-ranked Monfils and Australian coach Roger Rasheed mutually decided last month not to renew their contract following three years together in July.

"I'm a believer but to reach the top I have to believe more, endure more," Monfils told reporters in Washington, where he reached the final. "When I do two hours of practice, I need to add 30 minutes more. I need to feel something inside to go further. I think I show too much respect to my opponent. Maybe I can be more selfish. If I do that, I believe I can reach the finals."
