But their looks are not the only thing that they have in common: they have similar playing style and were both very successful in juniors.
In 2004, Monfils finished the year as the world’s number 1 junior, winning three of four junior Grand Slam events (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon). Mina reached the finals in Roland Garros, and the semifinals at the US Open in 2009, and won the 18 years old category of the Orange Bowl.

I’m just back from 4 days in Paris and I just wanted to share a few pictures of yesterday’s Children’s Day at Roland Garros (previously known as “Benny Berthet Day”).
Children’s Day at Roland Garros is a charity event, devoted to fund raising for charitable organisations. The idea is simple: on the eve of the tounament’s opening day, stars of tennis are invited to take part in one set exhibition matches. So, for just 19 euros, you can watch some of the top players in action and help a good cause!

A few pics from yesterday:
