Viktor Troicki stopped Gael Monfils from winning the historic grand slam.

Gael Monfils (1) of France lost his bid to be the first grand slam winner since Stefan Edberg when he bowed to Viktor Troicki of Serbia & Montenegro, 4-6; 2-6.

Viko!!

Re: Viktor Troicki stopped Gael Monfils from winning the historic grand slam.


Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: Viktor Troicki stopped Gael Monfils from winning the historic grand slam.

its a good thing
he didnt really wanna play US Open anyway, but was forced to by the FFT

pressure would have been too much "the new Stefan Edberg"

Re: Viktor Troicki stopped Gael Monfils from winning the historic grand slam.

it's true what Eggy said but is that why he lost? sorry but i have a hard time imagining that.

Re: Viktor Troicki stopped Gael Monfils from winning the historic grand slam.

Re: Viktor Troicki stopped Gael Monfils from winning the historic grand slam.

not great to see him lose - but wouldnt be such a tour with him dominating so much... then pressure would've been huge, now he can relax: credit to Viktor though on all accounts - doesnt like like a closie tho does it 4 & 2...!

Re: Viktor Troicki stopped Gael Monfils from winning the historic grand slam.

That is definitely not the last that we will hear of Gael. He was not 100% fit for this tournament, it seemed like he had to have the trainer out for every match he played, that may be why he had to be coerced into playing. Hopefully he will now be allowed time for those injuries to heal completely. I'd like to see how his career continues to develop (unlike Donald Young, who just bores me at this point. Turn off the hype machine already until he actually gets some results).

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
