Give us a twirl! Monfils hits stunning 360 winner... but still loses

Updated: 

Gael Monfils never shies away from showboating on the biggest stage and he delivered one of the shots of the tournament on his way to a third-round defeat to Adrian Mannarino at Wimbledon on Saturday.

A set and a break down to fellow Frenchman Mannarino, 15th seed Monfils gave spectators on Court 12 a 360 twirl before unleashing a shot with tremendous precision.

Mannarino's serve-and-volley routine was undone by the manoeuvre, which drew warm applause from the eventual winner, who is likely to face Novak Djokovic in the next round following the 7-6 (7-3) 4-6 5-7 6-3 6-2 triumph.

So take a look for yourselves. It's well worth a watch...
