While prepping for the US Open, Gael Monfils decided to show off his fancy footwork…by giving the fans what they want to see. The recently-married Frenchman shared an on-court video of him throwing down to the dance classic “Gonna Make You Sweat” by C+C Music Factory. The TikTok video has garnished over 1 million views and even three-time major champion Andy Murray chimed in on Twitter.
"You're the man, always make me smile," Murray wrote.
Monfils is known for his playful side on and off the court, and it’s clear that his skills on tour have transferred to the dance floor.
The world No. 20 is enjoying a highlighted year off the court as he married WTA star Elina Svitolina this summer before heading to the Tokyo Olympics. On the court, it's been somewhat of a rollercoaster but with moves like this he may be untouchable in New York this time around.
He is set to face Federico Coria in his US Open first round on Tuesday. This will mark their first meeting.
