After practice mood: Monfils moves and grooves to CKay’s ‘Love Nwantinti’ song
The Frenchman joined the list of the many TikTokers dancing to the Nigerian singer's global smash.
Published Oct 21, 2021
Gael Monfils is fresh off a solid month of tennis. Not only did he reach the last 16 at the BNP Paribas Open, but he also made the final of Sofia's ATP 250 just before. Not to mention, he married the love of his life, Elina Svitolina over the summer. Everything seems to be going quite well for the Frenchman and in his most recent Instagram post anyone can see this.
Finishing up a practice session in Dubai, Monfils stands in the center of the service box wrapped in a towel. No stranger to showing off his spectacular dance moves, he proceeds to remind his fans he still has that fancy footwork. As if we forgot or something?
This time he chose to dance to Ckay's "Love Nwantiti (Ah Ah Ah)." The song traveled around the world and back thanks to a TikTok challenge and is now the latest global hit. Always keeping up with what's on trend, his swaying under the evening moon has already garnished thousands of likes in less than an hour.
Wife and WTA No. 6 Svitolina made sure to hit his comment section with a little sarcasm.
"Ahh I thought I lost my skirt," she wrote.
Monfils is gearing up for the Tie Break Tens series which begins Friday in Dubai. The innovative tournament is unlike the standard tennis event where sets and games are played. Players instead will play 10-point tiebreakers and a winner will be crowned in a single day with no ranking points on the line.
