Here's the incredible horizontal diving shot Gael Monfils delivered at Roland Garros

Okay, so it flew out, but who’s counting?

GAEL MONFILS IS probably our favourite tennis player on the circuit these days.

When he’s not embroiled in a bitter dance battle, he’s using his athleticism for proper tennis reasons like this incredible diving shot during today’s second round win over Jan-Lennard Struff.

The athleticism to jump into a horizontal position three foot off the ground like that is impressive enough, but to do it immediately after moving in the other direction is a whole other deal.

Who cares if it didn’t count on the scoreboard? Keep her lit, Gael.
