Gaël Monfils eliminated by Tallon Griekspoor in the round of 16 in Washington

End of course for Gaël Monfils in Washington. The Parisian was eliminated Friday by Tallon Griekspoor (6-4, 1-6, 6-3) in the round of 16 of the tournament. Started Thursday evening, the match had been interrupted by rain after Monfils managed to equalize at one set everywhere. He finally cracked in the third set, dropping his first service game and failing to unbreak.

Monfils takes the door after achieving his best performance in an ATP Tour tournament, beating in passing the seeded No. 6 Alexander Bublik, in just under a year. The 36-year-old right-hander, hampered by injuries, had not reached the round of 16 of a tournament since Montreal in August 2022, where his career ended in retirement after a right foot injury.
