LONDON — Gael Monfils made another early exit at Wimbledon, losing 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-7 (1), 6-7 (3), 6-4 to Jiri Vesely in the second round of the grass-court Grand Slam on Thursday.
The 24th-seeded Monfils, who reached the quarterfinals at the French Open earlier this month, has never advanced past the third round at the All England Club on a surface he struggles with.
Monfils hit 71 winners, including 23 aces, but had trouble returning his opponent’s serve.
Vesely, a former junior world No. 1, is playing at Wimbledon for the first time. The Czech could face another Frenchman in the next round, 13th-seeded Richard Gasquet.
