WWW ? Auckland SF : Ferrer - Monfils

I was skeptical about Gael's form after injury but beating an in-form Haas is an enough evidence.

Vulture, on the other hand, found himself in the semi finals thanks to his mental headcase opponents.

But Gael is not one of those guys. Talent-wise, he's ten times better than Vulture so it will all come down to him being motivated or not. I guess he will be.

No more vulturing this week. Gael in 2.

Fit monfils obviously has no problems with Ferrer, but I don't think he's quite there yet.

Re: WWW ? Auckland SF : Ferrer - Monfils

I agree with the part where you say that Monfils isn't a headcase.

Re: WWW ? Auckland SF : Ferrer - Monfils

David will destroy Monfils like Lacko. Gael isn`t there yet to compete with these guys.

Gasquet is next №1

Voted Ferrer without seeing the H2H.

However I don't think Gael's fit enough to beat the best yet.

Ferrer in 2. Maybe 3

This is a H2H that requires more examination. All three matches were best-of-5 matches taking place in France (2 FO, 1 DC) and two of those matches went five sets. Gael knows he can't be a clown against Ferrer.

I'm picking Ferrer in 3. Gael is not physically ready for this match.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

Re: WWW ? Auckland SF : Ferrer - Monfils

Shouldn't be a problem despite the H2H. Monfils is not Davydenko.

Ferrer in 2.

Re: WWW ? Auckland SF : Ferrer - Monfils

Monfils better win this tournament now, with his two ultimate pigeons Ferrer and Kohli lined up for him in semis and final. If he doesn't, it will be a sign that he's not yet fully fit for AO.

Monfils in 2.

Re: WWW ? Auckland SF : Ferrer - Monfils

Going for the upset… Ferrer in 3.

Gael isn't ready yet. Give him three months of good health and ge'll be reay to start challenging top guys again.

Re: WWW ? Auckland SF : Ferrer - Monfils

If Lu can take a set off Ferrer than Gael can beat him I dont care if he isnt at full strength yet. He beat Kohlschreiber and Haas and they are no scrubs.



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