of France will be looking to bounce back at the US Open after suffering an early exit at Wimbledon this year.
Monflis was seen as one of the most talented players in the world and 2 years ago at the French Open in Paris he reached a Grand Slam Semi Final for the 1st time in his career when he lost to Roger Federer in 4 sets.
Federer then lost in the final 6-1 6-3 6-2 to Rafael Nadal.
Nadal won the title for the 5th time last month and looks on course to win his 2nd Wimbledon title this year.
Nadal at his best is capable of beating anyone in the world.
Monflis at his best has beaten everyone in the world and he would love to win a major title sometime this year to prove his critics that he has finally arrived at the top level.
