David has played Monfils before-in the 2006 FO, in fact, where David prevailed in four.
Sorry, that was just my post being worded badly. I meant I was hoping to finally catch David play this Olympics, not play against Monfils.
I watched that match against Monfils at the French Open in 2007. It was exciting to follow (great atmosphere and drama probably only because of the home crowd) but the tennis was a bit boring. David was playing too defensively and there were some ugly dropshots but most of the time they didn't need to be good - I remember him getting away with one in the fourth set TB by following it up with a very nice lob. Monfils served extremely well and I remember David's excellent clutch play in that fourth set tie-break, that drop volley on the stretch. You would think that maybe David would like playing against Monfils on paper because he stands so far behind the baseline so that allows David to use the angles well, but I'm not sure whether he will do that because he didn't the last time they played.
