I really thought Monfils had it when he held for 6-5 in the fifth

Great match except the 4th set and some parts of the 3rd.

All my hate for Simon the pusher has disappeared with this match. He gave it every bit of heart he had and it seems he has a lot of it. The man was in such pain through the whole ordeal and kept going and giving 150% in there. It wasn't pretty but he bought me through and through.

Clownfils though... My god man, he faced 110kmh serves and simply returned them mid court... I'm not saying he didn't put himself out there but really he could and should have won this game. Terrible terrible match from him.

Gilles you are now my man!

Nobody deserved that victory. Every time I see a Monfils/Simon match I am just so disappointed that there can only be one loser.

I have no idea what the fuck is wrong with those guys. I have never seen someone win the 4th set after being 2 sets down and show zero emotion. Monfils just grabbed his towel and plodded to his bench. It was like both players had been paid to throw the match.

Total disgrace to tennis.

Huge respect for Simon. Thought he was going to retire at one stage.

But Monfils Should have put the gas to the floor and finished this one off instead of trying to play prolonged rally after prolonged rally.

Disappointing from Monfils. He should've punish those puny serves from Simon. What a let down.

Had I been drunken, that match would've probably been funny to watch. But it was terrible to watch as I was sober. After 3rd set, I didn't watch it for over 1.5 hours and I think I didn't miss anything, they were still at level in 5th when I continued watching.

It was an ultimate snoozefest most of the time but that epic fight in the last set kind of made up for it.
