Third set, he should've went down 0-2 but held from 0-40, and then he should've broken 0-40 at 3-3 only to throw that away.

Gael is still laboring, his athleticism and tommy's mental muggery won him this match.
You mean Monfils' serve won him the match. I lost my connection at around 3-3 in the third set but in that set if a point was on Monfils' serve it ended either on a serve winner on a 1st or second serve, a double fault or a really short rally won by Haas. Mostly serve winners and double faults...
