Tennis: Ugo Humbert takes his revenge on Gaël Monfils in Dubai

He wanted to “take his revenge”, as he confided before his first round in Dubai. And he has difficulty, once again, against Gaël Monfils, who is launching his 2024 season rather well. French number one Ugo Humbert, 18th in the ATP ranking this week - his best career ranking -, first conceded the first set against the Parisian (6-4) before reacting in the second.

He notably took advantage of a slight drop in speed from the 37-year-old Frenchman, who was not feeling well. The reason ? The eggs he ate in the morning... “I think the eggs hurt my stomach,” he said on the court. “You should have had a pepperoni pizza,” joked one of his staff in the stands.

In the end, Ugo Humbert won the second round, with a small break in the middle of the set, then the final round, once again with a small break - from the start -, which was enough to win after 2h11 of play.

The Frenchman will face Andy Murray in the next round, who defeated Denis Shapovalov (4-6, 7-6[5], 6-3) in the first round but has lacked rhythm since the start of the season. A great opportunity for the Frenchman to reach the quarter-finals of this tournament.
