Monaco's Running Tweener
Juan Monaco’s less-than-stellar 2014 continued with a Day 1 loss to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Grandstand on Monday, but before the well-liked Argentine hit the shower he did manage to save a match point with this incredible running tweener.

Extra points for soaking up the moment before being bounced out of the draw by his opponent on the next point.

Monaco drops to 0-5 vs. Tsonga with the 6-3, 4-6, 7-6(2), 6-1 loss to the 9th-seeded Frenchman. Monaco, a former top-tenner who is currently languishing at No. 99 in the world, drops to 16-17 on the season, and 1-4 on hard courts.

Tsonga meanwhile, advances to face Alexsandr Nedovyesov of Kazakhstan in the second round. The 29-year-old Frenchman is making his fifth career appearance in New York, but missed last year due to a knee injury. His best previous result is a quarterfinal appearance in 2011.
