Monfils...

1. To push Nadal all the way in the QFs.
2. And to be one of his biggest challengers at Roland Garros over the next 5-10 years.
3. And to be the next French man to win a Slam. With a compulsory hug from Noah when he does.

"My greatest point is my persistence. I never give up in a match. However down I am, I fight until the last ball. My list of matches shows that I have turned a great many so-called irretrievable defeats into victories."

Tsonga will win the AO, then Monfils the French, Gasquet will take Wimbledon and finally Simon will win the US open. There you go, you heard it here first people, no need for any more hype threads. French Slam coming up!!11

Re: Monfils...

Monfils on clay is so overrated due to that RG-semi with that mug draw
I'm sure his career on hard courts and probably even grass courts will be way more successful
feel free to quote me in 2019 if I'm wrong

Re: Monfils...

Monfils was a top flight junior who won all 4 majors so its not a stretch tha one day he will win big because he is showing tremendous growth mentally and his game is reflecting maturity.

If monfils can work on maintaining his concentration and seriousness in a matches, he could easily with the Grand Slam several times.

Re: Monfils...

Monfils with that game, at its best, can be a Poor man Nadal.
