Shanghai R1: Monfils thumps Mathieu 6-2 6-2

Monfils got his first win over PHM. The panther was very comfortable in this match and Mathieu was awful. Some of the linecalls were as bad as Mathieu's play.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Unbelievable that PHM was 2-0 up in H2H before this one, and 1 from this year even...

Great start for Gael. PHM was subpar but Monfils definitely played a good match

Nice scoreline against someone who beat him twice in the past. It looks like Monfils has really improved a lot lately!

Federer, Raonic, Tsonga, Monfils, DelPo ...

Shouldn't be too tough against Hewitt next if he plays as well as he has been lately.

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

The Simontards go on about how they prefer 'intelligence' to brainless ballbashing yet most of them all support PHM- the definition of a brainless basher.

Re: Shanghai R1: Monfils thumps Mathieu 6-2 6-2

It's too bad. PHM has perhaps by far one of the best two handed backhands technique in the game but unable to utilize it. Also can't follow it up with his crappy forehand too.

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:
Grigor Dimitrov: FedererBulgaria
Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)
