James Morris of Stevegtennis.com had the pleasure of of chatting to Juan Monaco, the current world number 14. Juan has won 2 titles this year (Houston & Vina Del Mar) and is in the form of his life. Despite him being at the top of the men’s game, Juan chatted about his inability to win a match at Wimbledon (4 straight 1st round losses), and off camera joked that rather than eat some grass like Djokovic did when he won the title last year, if he only managed to win 1 match he would take the whole stadium home with him!
We’ll be watching his first round match closely, and after this news so will the organisers. He plays fellow Argentine Leonardo Mayer tomorrow. Good luck Juan!
