WWW RG QF: Federer vs. Monfils

Fed lost to Monfils last time they played...in Paris...after having 5 MPs.

I say Fed takes this in straights.

Fed in 3 or 4.

Re: WWW RG QF: Federer vs. Monfils

It would be very easy for Roger. He hits with high power than Ferrer and serve too. I can`t imagine current Monfils so good in defense to create comething special. 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 - something like that.

Gasquet is next №1

Re: WWW RG QF: Federer vs. Monfils

Fed should have no problems with Gael. I hope the clownishness of Monfils isn't contagious, Rog has done a great job of concentrating so far. Monfils can be dangerous if he decides to attack. But I think and hope he'll grind and finally go for impossible shots.

Re: WWW RG QF: Federer vs. Monfils

Fed in 4. Monfils will take a set to appease the home crowd, but Roger is too good in a 5 set match.

Re: WWW RG QF: Federer vs. Monfils

Their Last match was EPIC

but i want Federer to play against Nole....it could be a tight affair and a nice warmup for Nole before the eventual MAULING of the Bull in the final

Federer in 3, but his beatdown is coming after that.

Re: WWW RG QF: Federer vs. Monfils

The Fed in 4. Monfils tires easily which is funny considering the way he plays the game. If Monfils plays six feet behind the baseline the Fed will create angles and run Frenchman to his doom.

Re: WWW RG QF: Federer vs. Monfils

I say fed in 3.. Monfils doesnt have the belief to beat fed in a 5 setter. I also believe that fed has a real shot against nole. Should be an awesome match if fed gets through monfils!

Re: WWW RG QF: Federer vs. Monfils

Clownfils will be happy with his quarterfinal appearance and so Fed in straights.

Re: WWW RG QF: Federer vs. Monfils

I'm going for the upset. Monfils in 4. If Melzer can win on clay against Fed, an inspired Monfils certainly can.

Most likely scenario is Fed in straights tho. But I'll stick with my upset prediction.

It would be great to see, but I think the conditions in Monte Carlo are slightly different than what Roland Garros is playing like right now.
