L’abandon de Monfils, la liste des nommés au Ballon d’Or, Rashford-PSG : L’actu sur un plateau du vendredi 13 août

What you may have missed between last night and this morning

1. Tennis – ATP Montreal: The terrible abandonment of Monfils

He stopped short in the middle of the race before hiding his pain under his T-shirt. After a bad support on his right leg, Gaël Monfils was forced to give up in the round of 16 against Jack Draper (6-2, 2-0). If he tried to go back to fighting, the pain was too bad. Absent for almost three months for an injury to his right heel, the Parisian does not yet know if he will be able to line up at the US Open, a tournament he loves.

He is euphoric. After his victory against Daniil Medvedev, Nick Kyrgios crushed his compatriot Alex de Minaur in two express sets (6-2, 6-3). In the quarters, he will challenge Hubert Hurkacz, who has struggled to overcome (6-7, 6-2, 7-6) Albert Ramos. The quarterbacks will also be there: Casper Ruud, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Tommy Paul, Daniel Evans, Pablo Carreno Busta and therefore Draper. To be continued, of course, on Eurosport.

3. Football – Mercato: PSG thinks of Rashford

In search of an offensive reinforcement, as confirmed by Christophe Galtier on Thursday, PSG would have checked the name of Marcus Rashford on its list according to L’Equipe. At the end of the contract in 2023, the Manchester United striker could welcome a transfer to PSG, unless the rumor serves him to better negotiate a future contract with his favorite club. Still, his season last year cast doubt on his true level…
