Montpellier Final: Berdych vs Monfils

Great matchup between two of the most talented players on the tour. Who ever serves the best will win this match. Allez La Monf!!! Two finals in your first three events.



Stronga,Monfils,DelPo,Nalbandian,Berdych,Gulbis,Ha as and Djokovic are the players I support the most.

Re: Montpellier Final: Berdych vs Monfils

I was wondering what your name was about.. I get it now.. I get it.

Monfils has put on the miles and should be overwhelmed here. Berdych is getting consistently clinical against guys below around 5 in the world.

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.

Re: Montpellier Final: Berdych vs Monfils

The court is playing perfectly for Berdych imo. Any chance he gets he will crush the ball, and Monfils will be diving everywhere just to keep up.

Gael has to come out, serve hard, and play aggressively from the beginning. That isn't his natural gameplan, and he soon retreats into passive/defensive mode, which is unlikely to be enough against Berdych unless his timing is off.

Yep. Needing three sets to dispatch of Simon-Version-2012 is not a good sign for Monfils. Still, with Monfils, you just never know for sure and it isn't that Berdych is playing lights-out quality tennis right now.

Re: Montpellier Final: Berdych vs Monfils

I think Berdych should be able to win this match though Monfils has his French crowd.. Voted for Berdych in three, he serves too good for Monfils.

Never ever give up

Re: Montpellier Final: Berdych vs Monfils

GaŽl isn't defensive no more, i think you didn't watch GaŽl for a while. He's agressive, even in backhand this year, he really improved. But he still has a knee pain and doesn't move as he wants. He has to be careful with Davis Cup next week.

If he serves well he could take the title but it will be difficult. I would say Gael in 3.

Re: Montpellier Final: Berdych vs Monfils

Haven't seen much of this tournament, but if Berdy is still cruising on any of his AO form, this should be two easy sets for the Czech.

Re: Montpellier Final: Berdych vs Monfils

We're in indoor and GaŽl stroke 18 aces today, Berdych will have to return well ...
