Re: Brisbane SF: Stepanek crushes Monfils 62 61

Was competitive for a bit. 2-2 was the key point, Stepanek managed to hold serve after a fair few deuces. For some reason Monfils lost the plot as a result, immediately broken, and then just utterly lost interest, stopped moving his feet, adolescent-style overhitting, lost 9 games in a row.

Steps was competent but subdued, but tbh I could have beaten Monfils today. And I'm drunk.

I haven't watched the match but I am guessing that Gaël must have been injured or something. H2H was 3-1 for Gaël so far...

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

Monfy just vanished up there without Paris crowd.First 4-5 games were really spectacular but then just pfff...and "au revoir". Happy for the result.

WOW. Tennis wins. Thanks so much, Sexy.

His shoulder and left knee was bothering him and said he will reassess tomorrow before deciding whether he will play Sydney.

Re: Brisbane SF: Stepanek crushes Monfils 62 61

this is why i could never be a fan of monfils. such a clowish performance. if you didn't know you would swear he was a junior out there. no idea of a game plan and how to beat steps today.

Thanks to the poster for using Stepanek's real name, not Sexy. Stepanek is now 9-0 in Brisbane!
