He may take chances when trying to win Grand Slam matches, but when it comes to personal finance Monfils – who reached a career high of No6 in the world in 2016 – says he is risk-averse. His investment platform of his choice? The world’s leading social trading network eToro, which specialises in cryptocurrencies.

He was drawn to its wide selection of cryptos and innovative investment tools.
