Gael Monfils Bizarre Behavior At U.S. Open: Twitter Reacts
French tennis player Gael Monfils started to display bizarre behavior during his match with Novak Djokovic during the U.S. Open men's semi-final, at one point limping as if he was injured only to stop a few minutes later.
Not only did the crowds in the audience start to boo the #10 seed's antics, Twittersphere had plenty say also
I'm not a huge tennis fan, but I was compelled to tune in to see Monfils tank job. In the semifinals of the US Open? Is money involved?

Monfils should just sit down + take shoes off midcourt... Nothing like the total meltdown in golf/tennis. One of my fav events in sports. — Christian Lewis (@CWCLewis) September 9, 2016
Monfils looks a lot like a guy who enjoyed the NYC nightlife a little too much last night. #USOpen

John McEnroe: "One of the greatest lack of effort matches I've ever seen in a #USOpen semifinal." Monfils should be fined. — tangerine dream (@tangytennis) September 9, 2016
Nonsensical stuff from Monfils https://t.co/sRnIboKI2X
