I usually am usually not this lazy, but I thought the Keith Boykin did a good job so I am re-printing his post.
Yesterday we talked about a French magazine. Today let's talk about an up and coming French athlete. That would be Gael Monfils, of course.
Monfils, a 19-year-old French teenager with corn rows, stunned the crowds at Roland Garros this week by beating James Blake in the third round of the French Open, only to lose in the fourth round to Serbian teenager Novak Djokovic.
The photo at top here shows Monfils with corn rows while the older photo at bottom shows him without them. (Click on either photo to see a larger image.) Monfils is scheduled to play at Wimbledon later this month, with or without the corn rows.
