ATP Paris-Bercy 2021: Monfils hit the FASTEST forehand EVER!

Gael Monfils made history at the ATP Paris Rolex Masters 2021! Power has never been lacking the Frenchman, but this time it seems to have passed. In the first round match of the Masters 1000 in Paris-Bercy, Kecmanovic saw a surface-to-air missile thrown straight by the Frenchman delivered to his half of the field: a shot that, according to electronic readings, traveled at 190 km / h.

It is, therefore, a new record for world tennis, exceeding the 189 km / h of the previous record. A crazy shot, especially if related to the fact that it was shot by the French on a weightless ball, so it was Gael who gave the full 190 km / h of power released.

In the match then Monfils had to make up a set of disadvantage before being overwhelmed by Kecmanovic. In the other matches of the tournament wins came for Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz, Casper Ruud and Marin Cilic.
