Baseline tennis 63 75 63
Can Monfils stand any further back?

Re: R3 Davydenko d Monfils

monfils played terrible tennis, with his mental focus never in the game. This kid needs to be tamed or he'll never accomplish anything.

Unless a player has patience and nerves of steel, he will get increasing frustrated with these frequent rain delays. I don't blame Monfils for not being focussed.

Re: R3 Davydenko d Monfils

He played terribly from the first point, when there was a fine line for both players.

Re: R3 Davydenko d Monfils

Mentally, Baghdatis is just as frail.. Should Nadal be out today by some accident, I don't see whom the grasscourt clown can't beat here on his way to finals..

Re: R3 Davydenko d Monfils

I like Kolya and Ferrero but they both reaching 2nd week at Wimby shows how the baseline game is dominating the only space left for serve and volley, quick reflexes and returns

Drooling after Schuettler, Bolelli, Volandri, Starace (short haired version), ToJo, Tursunov, Alves, Petzschner, Simon, Qureshi, Steve Johnson

Well, Kolya operates further up the baseline than that wimpy ballpusher Monfils, who is camping 10 ft behind the baseline. So it's only right Kolya advances.

Players who make me...
:Federer - Davydenko - FitDave - Cilic
:Safin - Monfils - Non-Slam Federer.
:Nadal - Roddick - Murray

Re: R3 Davydenko d Monfils

Monfils tactis were embarrasing. he was trying to play like Canas just pushing the ball back, how is that going to work again the most consistent ball striker in the game?

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

No surprises here. Everyone knows Monfils plays without a brain.

Re: R3 Davydenko d Monfils

What I see is that Davydenko has kept his RG form. He might be the 3rd best player on hardcourt this summer.
I'm not sold on Nadal off clay. Davydenko might be the second best player in the US this summer.

US hardcourts is a different ballgame, a world of big servers and flat hitters - much faster surface than Wimbledon grass.. I don't think that Davydenko will be a match for guys like Blake, Roddick, Berdych, Gonzalez, Djokovic on US hardcourts.. Last year he was lucky, very lucky to reach semis, only courtesy of Safin's taking out all he could from Haas before losing to him in R16. And Haas didn't have a day of rest after that.. I don' think Davydenko is Top 5 on hardcourts. Maybe not even Top 10.

Re: R3 Davydenko d Monfils

I really doubt it he will be the third best harcourt player in the summer

but he could be in the top 10 for sure
