You have got to be joking. Monfils is the biggest pea heart in tennis.

Simon is not far behind, the way he tanked away that fourth set. They are both an utter disgrace.

This match showed that the time between points by Nadal-Djokovic is unreasonable. These two were take little time between points.

That's because they were taking naps during the points.

Yes ... no need of prolonging the match.
I as a bulgarian-pro-player prefer to be tired and my opponent to be tired too than me to be well-rested and my opponent too ...

I'm sure both of them are trying to troll the crowd and the ATP as a whole.h: What a mug match with both of them having their own problems at one point of the time. However, it was pretty fun to watch at times.

At least if one of those ****s were cute, I would have found a valid reason to be clement but this match is BS. Wrong in all accounts.

Nalbandian/Davydenko/Berdych/Gulbis/Nadal rock, the rest is more or less sucky.

Quite the contrary. It shows that if you don't let them rest you get quality like this. Nadal-Djokovic maintained their great level of play and intensity throughout the match, because they were allowed to rest up some more.

I'd much rather have that than watch quality like this
