French flash Gaël Monfils is having one of those weeks.
They’ve been too few and far between in recent years. But the 32-year-old was impressive against No. 2 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Sofia quarterfinals Friday.
Monfils defeated Viktor Troicki and Mikhail Kukushkin in the first two rounds.
He lost in four sets to an in-form Taylor Fritz in Australia, in his 2019 debut.
Can he keep it up against the tricky No. 3 seed, Daniil Medvedev?
Monfils is playing Sofia for the first time; he had played the competing Montpellier event in his homeland six times previously.
