Fed defeats Monfils 6-3,7-6(5) for 1st title in 2006

Fed was completely taken aback by Monfils's pounding groundstrokes of both wings and his retrieval ability so he slowed down the pace of the game from time to time. Like Hewitt, Gael was at sea against the sliced return from time to time and Fed took advantage of it. All in all, a very close match and Fed's experience and strategic thinking got him the win.

Gael should be proud of himself for pushing Fed like this.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Congrats Roger!
An intesting match and contrary to what some people thought here, Gael has not been schooled or killed by Fed.

I don't know about that - except for the first few games in the 2nd set, Monfils played quite well - using his powerful serve to his advantage and executing his groundstrokes really well.

In fact, he gave a good fight in the tie-break too.

I agree. I haven't seen the match, but the score doesn't reflect a massacre.

Gael made Fed work and that was good for him. I expected Fed to win but hoped it would go three sets.
