If Nalbandian wins tonight, I'm pretty sure we'll have a Roddick vs Nalbandian match

Greul Gael What the fuck was that?

Greul played a horrible first set, but hang in and Gael lost his patience and the match with it.

Good effort from Greul actually....Monfils lost his way from the second set onward but credit to Greul for really thinking things out and finding some tactics, especially net approaches, that left Monfils stranded behind the baseline.

Some very good play from the German but Monfils typicall seemed to have no idea how to turn things in his favour again.

Greul played amazing in the 2nd and 3rd set. Just like he did against Federer at the last US Open. Hitting the lines, playing very attacking, nice to see. Monfils was shit in those sets and played 5 metres behind the baselines as usual.

Good result!

Good to see players like Greul peaking at an older age. He's 29 next month and reached his career high of 56 last month.

Too true.

The conditions favoured the attacking and forcing play of Greul who hit hard from the baseline and finished at the net.

It proved difficult winning far behind the baseline defending.
