World No. 276 Gael Monfis (36) has defeated world No. 4 Stefanos Tsitsipas (24-GRE) in straight sets.

Monfis defeated Tsitsipas 2-0 (6-4 6-3) in the round of 32 of the National Bank Open ($6.6 million in prize money), part of the 2023 ATP Masters 1000 Series, on the hard courts of Sobeys Stadium in Toronto, Canada, on Monday (Sept. 9). 꽁머니

The round of 16 victory marked a turnaround for Montpellier, who had struggled to a 3-9 record this season. Montpellier withdrew from the French Open with an injured left hand and did not compete at all at Wimbledon. Her world ranking, once No. 6, plummeted to No. 276.

Monfis is the husband of Ukrainian tennis star Elina Svitolina. After marrying in 2021, Svitolina gave birth to a daughter last October and returned to action in April of this year, reaching the quarterfinals of the French Open and the fourth round of Wimbledon.
