Qualified for the second round of Wimbledon after a victory in four sets against his compatriot Adrian Mannarino (6-4, 3-6, 7-5, 6-4), Gaël Monfils will be meeting an old acquaintance as he will face his friend Stan Wawrinka this Wednesday.

Asked at a press conference about this Franco-Swiss confrontation, “La Monf”, who has lived in the land of chocolate for over 20 years, said with a touch of humor that he felt almost more Swiss than French.

“I’ve been living in Switzerland for 20 years. I’m almost as much Swiss as I am French (smiles). We often talk about tax issues, but there’s one thing that people really forget, it’s that it’s a great country. I love living there. They welcomed me well. I pay taxes in France, in Switzerland too, lower, of course. But I have a good life, above all. There are lots of French people who like what’s happening in Switzerland. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to forget my homeland. I’m happy to represent my country. And I voted, of course. I’m a French citizen first and foremost.”
