Monfils Pairs Up with Benhabiles

Director of Tennis for RTM, Tarik Benhabiles, is the new coach of French phenom Gael Monfils.

The relationship officially began two weeks ago. Benhabiles and Monfils agreed that Gael should prepare himself for the French Open by playing as many matches as possible. Fortunately Gael was awarded Wild Cards to play a challenger in Zagreb, Croatia and the ATP event held last week in Portorasch. Gael took advanatage of the opportunities by reaching the semis and finals respectively. Communicating over phone and email Benhabiles helped Gael find his top form quickly as he defeated Andy Roddick and Lleyton Hewitt in straight sets.

The two have known each other for years and both are extremely excited to finally work together as a team.
