Tursunov: I'd rather watch a spectacular Monfils every day than a boring Anderson win

Former Russian tennis player Dmitry Tursunov named Gael Monfils as one of his favorite players to watch. Tursunov loves the entertainment Monfils brings to the game and said he would "rather watch a spectacular Monfils every day than a boring Kevin Anderson win." "Among those currently playing, in terms of art and spectacle, I like Gael Monfils," Tursunov told Vedomostisport, as revealed on We Love Tennis.

"In tennis, there are successful players like Kevin Anderson, but his matches are impossible to watch, it's very boring, you fall asleep immediately. I'd rather watch a spectacular Monfils every day than a boring Anderson win."

Tursunov tips Novak Djokovic to win more Grand Slams

Tursunov believes Djokovic will win more Grand Slams, while he couldn't say the same for Roger Federer.

“I find it hard to assume that Novak won't win another Grand Slam. Roger has very little chance of winning another Major, given his age, style of play and condition. Rafa's game is too energy intensive, he plays every match like it's the last.

Considering his age and health, this is a disadvantage. Although over the years he changed his game: he became more aggressive, stopped going too far behind the back line. The three complement each other. Djokovic has become such a strong player thanks to Federer and Nadal.

He tried to find ways to surpass them, and he relied on physical preparation," Tursunov explained. Tursunov was hired by Anett Kontaveit in August. Kontaveit won four titles, made her debut at the WTA Finals and broke into the top-10 after hiring Tursunov.

"I'd like to think this is a big part of why I'm here, but it's not up to me to decide," Tursunov said in October. "I feel like I'm doing a good job. I used to be afraid of saying that. I act like an idiot and sometimes I enjoy acting like an idiot, but I really know what I'm talking about and I'm passionate about it. "I feel like there's a lot of players who could improve and they're not improving."
