Lord of Grass Monfils does not play challengers. and PHM is not much of a step from the challengers, 125-120 career record and 5-6 on grass since 2006
Monfils had one of his brainfarts.
Paulo has destroyed 2 very tough opponents in Stepanek and Ferrer, and also had a good run at Nottingham.
Ljubicic should win this one pretty easily because Mathieu is a clay court specialist. Ljubicic in three sets:
6-2, 6-1, 7-5
That scoreline would need Ljubicic to break at least 5 times
