Anybody looking forward to Murray Vs Monfils...

I really hope this will be a good match. It sucks that these to young ones have to face so early. I like them both, but want Monfils to do well in front of the home crowd.

Monfils will easily win in straight sets.
In Hamburg Monfils was tired as he reached semi's at Rome and could not play well. But now he is fresh and ready and also playing in front of his crowd.

Re: Anybody looking forward to Murray Vs Monfils...

I really hope you are right. The only problem I see is that Monfils is so damn wishy washy. You never know what you will get when he plays.

If Monfils is wishy-washy, what does that make Murray? If the former plays like crap for the first hour and a half but can keep the match going beyond that time, chances are the latter will have another cramping attack.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

I'm looking forward to it, but I don't let my expectations grow too high...tennis quality-wise

Re: Anybody looking forward to Murray Vs Monfils...

Murray's fitness has to be in dispute! What is wrong with the Brits and tennis!? Murray has a great game and the potential to go far...but all these cramps and sick on court stuff does my head in.

Re: Anybody looking forward to Murray Vs Monfils...

I can't see it being high - quality to be honest but it is an exciting match-up and it is a pity I can't watch it

Murray's fitness - lack of it - will be the telling factor...he has the game to break Monfils down and hopefully he will do it again tomorrow.

He needs to eat better - those foot-long subs and other junk he consumes really don't help

Good luck Andy!

Re: Anybody looking forward to Murray Vs Monfils...

It could be a great match - it could be atrocious.

Both of these young guns are having very erratic seasons so far so who knows what will show up tomorrow.

3 years from now these two will probably be having very entertaining matches whenever they play but right now it's perhaps too early for both of them to produce a spectacle.

I'm looking forward to this match, especially to Murray. I hope he wins and maybe has a little run at this tournament or the next ones.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: Anybody looking forward to Murray Vs Monfils...

I think Andy will win if he lasts that long. He is so fragile physically though you can never put him as favourite in slam best of 5 set match
