Rest up soldier!!!!! Amazing stuff.
Go back to your original job Monfils. You're better off with children's birthday parties.

As expected, greatest match of the tournament =p

Ridiculous, absurd, grueling, and yet compelling from start to finish.

Everything you could ask for in a Monfils vs Simon match.

Simon really showed a lot of heart to pull through that, but he's going to be fucking dead next round though.

God, my eyes... It was so painfull to watch. This match-up should be avoided in any possible way - apart from #1 and #2 seeds organisers at all tournaments should put these two in different halfs of draw despite the rankings.

Gasquet is next №1

Oh man, I was laughing so hard in the 5th set.

Sorry, but Monfils did not deserve a victory here. Great outcome.

Now try not to die against Murray

Oh my god this overshadows the Tomic/Fed match. Absolutely incredible. Lost for words.

Love u Simon bb and Monfils you were pretty good too.

Novak Djokovic — Juan Martin del Potro
Seppi — Garcia-Lopez — Simon — Klizan — Gasquet — Paire — Pouille — Halys
and every single Australian player out there

Truly one of the greatest fifth sets I have ever seen, legendary stuff. Unreal points and I really thought Simon was going to pass out at some point.

Beginning of the fourth set when they were both injured, Monfils started slicing every forehand, Simon double faulted to give a break and just tanked the rest of the set was great too

That was amazing stuff

Can't believe Clownfils was missing serves at 120km/h
