Gaël Monfils victim of racist insults after his defeat in Rome

On his Instagram account, Gaël Monfils unveiled the series of insults, including some racists, which were sent to him after his defeat in the second round of the tournament in Rome.

Gaël Monfils had warned, the messages he was going to publish in his Instagram story would be shocking. His defeat in Rome, obviously unexpected, angered several Internet users who used insults and racism to express their disappointment.

For his first match since the end of February and the shutdown of the circuit, the French, seeded number 5 in the Masters 1000 in Rome, was opposed to the German qualifier Dominik Koepfer, ranked 97th player in the world. And it did not go as planned for the Monf ‘, beaten 6-2, 6-4 in 1h30 of play.

“Stop tennis you are destroying this magnificent sport, looser”; “thank you for ruining all my savings, I hope with all my heart that you will never be at peace in your life”; “deep in my heart I hate you” … So much for the most “softs” messages, because the 9th player in the world has also unveiled more virulent comments, some racist, which were sent to him.
