Lame end to last sets two/three for Isner, too many errors and poor shots. Not in good form though, so not as mentally clutch as usual. His first serve was particularly weak today as well, seemed to be struggling to find the big bombs.
Monfils seemed a bit intimidated the opening set, doesn't seem to like the pressure of having to constantly hold.
Yeah,so amazing that even playing like that,he would have lost that game 40-0 against the likes of Murray,Djoker or Nadal......
Monfils is good when it comes to beat the weaker players or players out of form(Nalbandian,Gasquet) but when he plays the top players then his game (and lack of talent) is showed up.

Re: Montpelier QF: Monfils def. Isner 3-6 6-4 6-4
That was a really good last two sets from Monfils, really used the crowd effectively. Served BETTER than Isner did throughout the match, which is somewhat surprising. His return of serve and movement really came through for him today, and put a lot of pressure on Isner. John didn't play that well today. Return was poor, didn't serve as well as usual, and struggled with his range. An entertaining match, a good victory for Monfils over someone who has given him trouble. Should be a great match v Tsonga tomorrow.
