Seppi had his results for the very fact that he is passive and very 'tidy/neat' in his game style which is poison for players like Verdasco and Paire. As for the two sets against Djokovic, I think everyone in here agrees on the fact that DJ never looked in trouble and went down mainly beacuse he was missing a lot of shots. Other slams he went out R1 to Gasquet in four sets, R1 Istomin 5 sets (he could have won) and R1 to Robredo in straights sets (...). Not so much impressive if u ask me.

As for Monfils we are saying the same thing, he should have ballbashed since he was quite tired. otherwise running 10km in every point doesn't help at all.
