Re: robredo smokes monfils

Monfils won a round, so he made good on his WC. Good job

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: robredo smokes monfils

Monfils was pretty close to making it a little closer, but he really had no chance to win.

Yes, but this isn't that surprising. He's still very young and adjusting to the differences on tour. Remember that Robredo is nearly top 10, has very solid groundies, and is extremely fit. Just mentally, its going to be difficult for a kid to beat a guy like that, but I'm sure the physical aspect was a factor as well.

I think the first set started close and then Robredo starting pulling away. I think then Monfils went out mentally. Hopefully, someone who saw the match will post an analysis.

Yeah, he'll get there for sure. He's definitely moving forward in a pattern similar to top players in the past. Winning challengers and most first round matches in his first full year. Already a couple big wins. Sometime soon, the breakout will likely come in a smaller event

Re: robredo smokes monfils

it was a good learning experience for my baby

that and watching the big boys play for DC.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

He won 4 games, nothing to be ashamed off. Go Gael

Re: robredo smokes monfils

Young and Geal just are not strong yet. I would love to see them play Ljubo. they need 3 or 4 more years.

Young and Monfils should not be in the same sentence together Monfils IS ready. That's why he's been able to win challengers and serveral of his first round matches. Young is NOT ready.

Monfils got a WC into Miami

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: robredo smokes monfils

Monfils is a step above Kuznetsov who is a step above Young.

Why would you wish a bad draw on a developing player? Yeah, he'd probably get creamed by the top guys. So?

I lack direction.
