Hanescu accused Monfils of dirty tricks. He believed that he was faking injuries!
"I think Monfils was 100%; he always does these kinds of tricks", he said. "I played him twice already and he made the same kind of tricks and those times he won and was 100%. Today he was also good; he tried to make me nervous and make me make a lot of mistakes, but I was very focused and finally I won."
Hanescu dismissed the idea that the Frenchman was fatigued after his exploits which involved playing 7 matches in as many days.
"I don't think so", he insisted. "He is very strong and I've seen him play very strong matches with big players and I think for him 6 matches is not so tough."
