Monfils bows out at French Open

Local favorite Gael Monfils has bowed out in the second round of the French Open after losing a thrillier 2-6, 4-6, 7-5, 6-4, 9-7 to Italian Fabio Fognini.
The 13th-seeded Monfils had saved three match points before their match was suspended because of darkness on Wednesday at 5-5 in the fifth set.
Fognini was booed when he came back on the court for just 31 minutes on Thursday and withstood the crowd pressure to save a break point on his first game serve.
He made the decisive break in the 16th game after coming back from 0-40.
