More from the Shanghai Masters where Gael Monfils, who is the man in blue on my right, was facing Belgium's David Goffin in the third round, and the Frenchman breaks for a 2-1 lead in the first set.

The uber-athletic Monfils would go on to claim the frame 6-4, but the 11th seeded Goffin then fights back to take the second 6-4, leaving the fans pleased at the prospect of a third set.

But Goffin would take control in the decider, and he goes on to close it out 6-2 with a forehand down the line, eliminating the sixth seeded Frenchman, who nonetheless has had a great season.

And in today's installment of Beyond the Baseline, Monfils talked to Mike Fox about his rise this year, and how he approaches the game.
