Will Monfis make a slam final?

What do you think?

At his highest level he seems every bit as good as Baghdatis/Gonzalez/Berdych.

Do you think he could make a slam final if he kept up his high level of play?

Re: Will Monfis make a slam final?

Also, before calls of Mugfis come out, remember this;

He has made a slam semi

He has beaten Federer and Nadal with some consistency in his career. Well, hes beaten them both.

Guys like Berdych who made a slam final have been roasted by Nadal in recent years. Birdy had a win or two against Roger but its been domination there too.

Monfills can beat the biggest players. I couldnt see him winning a final but I could see him making one. Hed be a one final wonder though.

"if he kept up his high level of play" - then yes, obviously. This goes for a lot of players.

The problem with Monfils is that he doesn't keep it up...can't see him going past QF at this point really, but we'll see how he does this year. He made some strides towards the end of last year, I thought.

He'll definitely win one... probably Roland Garros.

Re: Will Monfis make a slam final?

Monfils probably became more aggressive but just against counter punchers, moonballers, etc... against aggressive players he is still a way to passive and plays like before against this sort of players . really doubt the he will get 6 nadals on the road to the final

Re: Will Monfis make a slam final?

No.
At least I hope so. He is a fantastic player when on, but with Monfils its such a toss up. You never know which Monfils will turn up. He could end up clowning up a major final

Re: Will Monfis make a slam final?

I said yes because he may just string 6 good matches in a row or get lucky. If Nadal won USO10, nothing is impossible. Then again, not everyone can get draws rigged for them.

Hell, he might not even make another QF run ever at a slam.

Re: Will Monfis make a slam final?

Not till he grabs a masters. Let's just ignore the DelPo phenomenon for now.

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.
