Re: Monfils WDs from San Jose and Memphis

I guess it's a smart decision, because he has nothing to defend at IW and Miami, but don't get why he would play a dead rubber Sunday, and a Doubles exhibition on Monday.

Re: Monfils WDs from San Jose and Memphis

Monfils was diving all over the court in his match against Pospisil on the weekend. Yet another example of how putting on a show is more important to him than winning tournaments like this.

Re: Monfils WDs from San Jose and Memphis

Here's a story link:

Quote:
SAN JOSE, Calif.—Top-seed Gael Monfils has withdrawn from the SAP Open because of right knee inflammation, even though he never played a meaningful match in San Jose.

The Frenchman said Wednesday night he also plans to withdraw from next week's ATP Tour stop in Memphis and take a brief break from tennis. He will have an MRI on both knees when he returns home.
Monfils had been scheduled to play qualifier Dimitar Kutrovsky in the second round Thursday.

Monfils teamed with Steve Johnson in a light-hearted exhibition doubles match loss against John McEnroe and Jack Sock on Monday. He also helped France defeat Canada in the first round of the Davis Cup on Sunday.

Monfils says he hopes to return for the Sony Ericsson Open beginning March 21 in Key Biscayne, Fla.

If he hopes to return for Miami, then he is withdrawing from Indian Wells, too, yes?

Rest up Gael.
If Raonic wins the title he can give some of his prize money to Gael. Two years in a row where his withdrawal gives Raonic a comically easy draw.

Re: Monfils WDs from San Jose and Memphis

He certainly looked awful in his doubles match with Benny, so it's not surprising.

Re: Monfils WDs from San Jose and Memphis

Monfils you fool, why did you play in DC when already was decided by Tsonga´s victory over Dancevic... really i don´t understand this guy he is clowning on the court, off the court all th etime, injured all the time, why he is for example sliding all the time when he is so injury-prone if he would using his brain he could play more agressive - that means less deffense and that means less sliding for example, i think he can limited his injuries just by playing differently and using brain- not playing dead rubber in DC for example when i am not 100% healthy...

Monfils shows up what an imbecile he is, yet again.

If the man had a fully functional brain he'd be dangerous.
