RG Rd. 1: Gael "faster than Nadal" Monfils beats Clement 7-5, 6-3, 6-1.

Monfils played okay, his served saved him in that first set. If he can stay focused he could make a deep run here.
Allez!

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

I like how Arnaud was making the chair umpire check line calls that were clearly out.

Clement is another waste of space on the ATP.

Good job Gael.

Monfils is still sort of injured correct? Atleast I thought he wasn't sure if he was even going to be able to play. Good win for Gael. Looking at his next couple of potential matchups he could make a very nice run here at Roland Garros.

Absolutely.

I really didn't. Rather classless actually, but that is not surprising coming from him.

Nice Monfils.

Find your potential and at least make the 4th round.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

Clement was terrible.

Gael started poorly and his midcourt slow moonballs off the backhand were shocking at the start but gradually he found his length and was hitting it fairly well off his backhand. Not a bad performance

I didn't mean that I approved of it. I thought it was typical and kinda funny.
