Video: Gael Monfils’ unnecessary and fruitless trick shot

I love Gael Monfils, but count me as unimpressed with this behind-the-back trick shot from his second-round U.S. Open match against Juan Carlos Ferrero yesterday.

I’m not convinced that he couldn’t have hit that ball with his forehand; the ball would have gone out if Ferrero hadn’t returned it; and Monfils ultimately lost the point (and the match).
