Doha R2: Monfils def. Becker 7-5 4-6 7-5

Monfils the reason for the 2hr 30 match length, on the defensive. Match got nicely tight towards the end, two ballsy match point saves from Becker before Monfils finally prevailed.

No offence Monfils but I found this offensive.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Becker played really really well... If he keeps it up he'll be back in the Top100 in 5-6 months

Re: Doha R2: Monfils def. Becker 7-5 4-6 7-5

For seemingly no reason at all Monfils went down in the second after attempting to return a serve...he just crumpled over. After a long period of being looked at by trainers, wincing and looking just generally uncomfortable... he came back, played and started diving all over the court again.

Not saying he was just tired of being run side to side and needed a rest but...it sure looked that way.

Don't pay attention to samanosuke, it's another Monfils'hater.

Good job for Gaël who got the win although it was difficult and he's not yet focus the whole match. He will have to serve better against Troicki, he had a pretty good serve in first round and i hope it may come back.

Monfils really tried to get himself injured again during this match. What a CLOWN!
