Sorry, but Monfils is a flake. To say the supposed injury could just be in his head, sounds very strange to me. He always seems to get injured when things get tough. Either that or he just is not physically equipped to be a full time tennis player. I think he was tired and convinced that Simon was about to soundly beat him. Monfils and Gasquet are very talented players, but lack stamina and tenacity. Simon seems less naturally talented, but has the stamina and tenacity the talented guys lack. One day, perhaps, a male French player will have it all. I hope so!
I don't think you can say Monfils lacks stamina and tenacity.
I agree for Gasquet though,especially in term of stamina.
The guy looked already physically dead after only 2 sets against Gonzalez last night!
