Interesting match. Monfils asked for treatment in the second set for his shoulder, Monfils broke him after that and Ivo was absolutely furious telling the umpire that Monfils is always faking injuries.

Monfils should have retired, he couldn't serve.

If his shoulder was fine he would have won easily.

Ivo was the far superior player in this match. Monfils had two lucky return games (that accounted for almost all the return points he won). Ivo was consistently pushing him to 30 or duece on the return. It was actually a 20 point difference in the end, so not as close as the scoreline suggests

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Well,

There is one other guy who is faking injuries and is shitting in his pants right now, since dr.Ivo is in his part of the draw in Wimbledon.

Karlovic is just embarrassing himself. Monfils hit 0 ace today, he definitely wasn't faking the shoulder problems.

Never seen Karlovic so pissed off, after he was broken after Monfils's long shoulder massage, he was smashing everything in sight.

Yeah, almost no big serves, there wasn't much power on his serve, and he won very few points with it.

Nice tantrum there from Ivo, including this fine line, directed at the trainer: "Give him everything."

Monfils had 0 aces today.
Karlovic had 0 aces when they played in Monte Carlo.
Funny isn't it.

If you watched the match Monfils clearly had a shoulder injury as his serve was pretty much just lobbing the ball in.
