Why didn't Clement pick Gasquet btw?

And while Federer had some year (2006), he accumulated only about half the A.T.P. point total Djokovic just amassed.

Good stuff Monaco.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Simon and monaco... I cant think of a better matchup for anyone new to the sport to run away screaming and never, ever watch another match in their life.

Furthermore, it might even be enough to avoid sport in general.

NID result really. Pico plays way better in DC matches and he has his number against Simug. Good win overall, and thoroughly deserved.

Re: DC QF: Monaco beats Simon 7-6 6-2 6-4, ARG 1 FRA 1

Simon really needs to stop playing while injured, it's counterproductive and a bad habit he's fallen into - he's almost expected to play unless his legs fall off. It'd be much better long term if he took time off to fully recover than trying to compete when he's evidently struggling.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Monaco played really well except for that slump in the 1st set, surprising considering he didn't even win match this season outside DC. He may have to play a crucial match against Tsonga on Sunday so it's good he won it in straights while Jo had a long match.

Re: DC QF: Monaco beats Simon 7-6 6-2 6-4, ARG 1 FRA 1

Given how Tsonga had such a tough time against Berlocq, I'm starting to like Monaco's chances against Tsonga on Sunday.

It would be a very huge ask for Monaco to pull off the upset on Sunday, but it doesn't seem as hopeless as it did at the start.

Simon should have won. There are no fake excuse to look for. He is 1-7 in DC matchs. Benneteau is clearly a better choice for me. He like to plays against the odds.

don't like Tsonga? move along, it's propaganda here.

Clement himself would've been a better pick instead of Simon in this match. My God was this the worst performance of the year or something like that?
