USO Rd. 3: (32)Monfils eases past (7)Nalbandian 6-3, 6-4, 6-2.



Monfils is just so good defensively, Dave didn't know what to do out there and was sucking towards the end.

Blake or Fish next.

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

Monfils makes fun out of N Al Bundy An - wins 6-3 6-4 6-2

Monfils should get a huge respect for this match. He is the perfect retriever. Nalbandian played like a mug, but Monfils' athleticism and agility is something spectacular.

Some rallies, like this one at 5-1 40-40 in final set, ended with Nalbandian's drop-volley were just

USO R3: [32] Monfils def. [7] Nalbandian 6-3, 6-4, 6-2

Gael was really nimble, seemingly tracking down every ball that David hit back over the net. Nalbandian was kind of stuttering out there; at times, it looked like he was there to try and level the set but for the most part, he was just going through the motions, not making any great efforts at getting to a ball. He wasn't terrible, it just that Monfils played at a much higher level. According to JMac, his footwork (or lack thereof) was a significant factor during the match.

These two played some really thrilling points, allowing the crowd to "ooo" and "ahh" during much of the match.

Monfils retrieved very well and Nalbadian wasn't into it. I like Monfils victory jig!

I still believe in the one-handed backhand.

That little dance at the end from Monfils was cute.

Nalby is in a mega-slump.

Really poor quality match. A real shocker from Nalbi. Poor tactics, and some terrible errors.

Monfils is irresponsible with all his throwing on court
Fat Dave is pathetic I thought he would win one set.

Somebody please show Gael how to do an end-zone dance. That Michael Jackson stuff is so 80s.

Expected one.

The fatty threw this year away. I wonder how many meat-eating contests prepared him for this one. At least it gives him time to enjoy himself before the more serious business of Davis Cup.
