The Entertainer, Sliderman, La Monf… all nicknames associated with Gael Monfils. But after seeing his US Open fit, we might be able to add “The Flash” to the list. The Frenchman and his day-glow shorts have been zipping around the court like lightning strikes.
It’s no secret that Monfils is already a fan favorite, and has been for over a decade. So showing up to the final major of the year in the brightest outfit he could find only does his fans a favor. When La Monf steps onto the court, no one wants to miss a moment. Monfils has been sponsored by Asics since 2013, and the brand decided to incorporate a bit of brightness for this year’s US Open. If Monfils’ personality was a color, it would probably be the same one as his shorts.
