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


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...
