MC R2: Monfils def Karlovic 7/6(8) 6/1

Gael could have TB easier and also could have lost it (Ivo had a SP).
Very easy second set.
Karlovic served 0 ace !

Aces Monfils 5 - Karlovic 0

Ivo just gave up after the first set

Good stuff Monfils, some moments where he was in San Remo trying to return the ball, but off the Karlovic serve that's understandable.

Third round for Monfils is a lot further than many expected this week, showed some of his panther like speed at times.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: MC R2: Monfils def Karlovic 7/6(8) 6/1

Weird tie-break. Monfils was 3:0 up and played amateurish tennis, then was *4:1, 5:2, 6:5, *7:6 - Ivo saved setpoint after amazingly long rally for his standars and moment later wasted SP on his own serve

Ivo's tie-breaks '08 =

It's great to see Gael winning again in an important tournament.
Maybe he's got a small shot at Fed next, assuming Fed beats Hidalgo...

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

EDIT: not correct. But I think it happenned last season around the time he played Querrey in Memphis.
