VIDEO: Gael Monfils returns to practice together with Tsitsipas
Gael Monfils missed a long time with another injury that saw him have a small procedure on his foot to relieve pain and now he's back to playing tennis.
The veteran had a strong start to the year in Australia but suffered minor injury setbacks as the Tour switched to the clay. He took time to recover from all of that and he's back to the courts practising together with Stefanos Tsitsipas.
Monfils had a very strong showing last year in North America playing a couple of strong events including the Masters and the US Open. The veteran is still capable of high level of tennis as he showed in Indian Wells earlier this year by beating Daniil Medvedev. No player would want to play against him because his peak tennis is very hard to counter.
It's good to see one of the most popular player's on Tour back on the court.
