Doubles teams will try anything to get themselves fired up during a tough match. France's Gael Monfils, known for his on-court theatrics, decided he needed to share his desire to win online with the world.

Monfils posted this Instagram video of himself along with doubles partner Benoit Paire just before a final set super-tiebreak during their match at the Nice Open in France on Tuesday.

Though their chants of "Allez" got them pumped up, it wasn't enough to win the match as Monfils and Paire lost to Daniele Bracciali and Oliver Marach 4-6, 7-6(3), 2-10.

While Monfils and Paire will rue their defeat, they can take pride in knowing this may be the first posting of a video using social media during a match in ATP history.
