Gael Monfils, ever the entertainer, steps behind the net as Elina Svitolina walks off court and takes off her shoes after a 25-minute hitting session.

The Frenchman hits a few volleys to the enjoyment of the fans gathered around court nine – one of the outside courts in the shadow of Centre.

A testament to his popularity – he’s one of the most loved players of his generation – is that as many fans appear as excited to see him as they are Svitolina.
