Gael Monfils is looking forward to spend some free time with his girlfriend Elina Svitolina who will play the WTA Finals championship clash in Shenzhen. The Frenchman also spoke about failing to reach the ATP Finals in London: "I had one infinite chance to get there.
But from the beginning of the tournament, I've had a lot of successes already. The fact that Roger pulled out, the main draw opened up. And I managed to reach the semifinals in Vienna. It was a miracle. Hadn't I done that, I couldn't reach that point here now.
My aim was to end up in the top 10, and of course the London Masters was another goal, but it was too hard." Monfils added: "I will not say that I'm relieved, but I'm exhausted. Sometimes I feel that you act as if I were a robot.
I keep on practicing, on improving myself. I know that this month was tough, because I didn't play very well. I was lacking in self-esteem. I needed to have more confidence. And I kept on working hard, trying to play well. I had a few words already on my season, my coach was happy.
I did manage to win a few matches, and bearing in mind my current fitness form. Well, there won't be London Masters, but I will relax a little bit."
