Australian Open 2016 day 8: Monfils defeats Kuznetsov

Gael Monfils reached the quarterfinals in Melbourne for the first time after a 7-5 3-6 6-3 7-6 win over 74th ranked Andrey Kuznetsov. The Frenchman had an easy ride to the the last 8, beating Yuichi Sugita (124), Nicolas Mahut (63) and St├ęphane Robert (225); but he’ll be the underdog on Wednesday as he faces in-form Milos Raonic.
Do you think Monfils can cause an upset?
