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.
