Gael Monfils stunned Roger Federer in straight sets Friday, to leave France and Switzerland level 1-1 after the first day of the Davis Cup final in Lille.A superb backhand passing shot brought up break point for Monfils in the fourth game and he then forced a backhand return into the next to move 3-1 up.The rubber was unwinding rapidly and a poor Federer forehand into the bottom of the net gave Monfils the first break of the second set.It was the first time that Monfils had beaten Federer on clay and it could not have come at a more opportune moment.
