I'll bounce back, says Monfils after sore US Open loss

NEW YORK — Gael Monfils said he wouldn't dwell on his agonizing US Open quarter-final loss to Matteo Berrettini on Wednesday that prolonged France's  三 六-year wait for a men's Grand Slam singles champion.

The  三 三-year-old Monfils saved four match points against Italian  二 四th seed Berrettini before losing  三- 六,  六- 三,  六- 二,  三- 六,  七- 六 ( 七/ 五) in an entertaining four-hour battle at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Monfils fell short in his bid to reach a second US Open semi-final, having also missed out in  二0 一 四 after squandering two match points in the last eight against Roger Federer.

"I had tough ones in my career like that.

Actually I have a tough one here in match point with Roger. I know how to bounce back,"大众Monfils said.


Actually I played very good after that quarter that I lost in  二0 一 四 with Roger. I've got to take the positive of this almost two weeks and keep working hard and get back for the Asia swing."

Monfils was the last of  一 四 French representatives left in the men's draw at Flushing Meadows but was hindered by serving troubles that resulted in  一 七 double faults -- two of which came in the fifth set tie-break.

"I think the key today was I served very poorly. My serve was very off, a lot of double faults. Not at all first serve. That's I think a key in the match,"大众he said.

"I was battling with that and with my opponent. So it was tough. I just competed as much I could."

Yannick Noah remains the last Frenchman to capture a Grand Slam singles title, at the  一 九 八 三 French Open. The last Frenchman to triumph in New York was Henri Cochet at the US Championships in  一 九 二 八 --  四0 years before the Open era.

Monfils savored his time in the US Open spotlight and hopes to stick around a little longer to support girlfriend Elina Svitolina, who plays Serena Williams on Thursday for a place in the women's final.

"I'm not a sore loser. I give it all today. I served bad, but I gave my heart. The crowd was amazing. They pushed me. They helped me. It was fun. It was exactly what I play for,"大众Monfils said.

"I wish I could win, but I love those matches no matter what. I'm proud of myself, and, you know, I will be happy, I will be happy to cheer for my girlfriend tomorrow. Definitely if it can be one more day here, I'm on it.公众— AFP
