Re: Gasquet vs Monfils: who will win the battle of friends??

Heartbreaking for me this match...

But at the same time...

I just hope it will be a great match.

(Btw, i voted for Gaël to equilibrate the poll a bit more, the 2nd vote is my vote...)

Re: Gasquet vs Monfils: who will win the battle of friends??

Richie will kick this clown ass as badly as possible :P

so Gasquet in straights

Ok seriously Gasquet has much more tools
- he is less tired
- he is better player in every aspect (ok Monfils has better serve)

I hope they will show it on WTAsport

Gasquet has serious shot on QF.

No way
Monfils ranking is 100% suited to him, 50-60 is where he belongs and considering his style his career won't be long/

Gasquet could be Great (I hope so )

Re: Gasquet vs Monfils: who will win the battle of friends??

Like I said before, this is actually a good matchup for Monfils. i still think Gasquet will win, however. Dumbass will probably take himself out of the match in the third set by running into the umpires chair or something equally stupid.

Re: Gasquet vs Monfils: who will win the battle of friends??

It could be a great battle cos of their opposite games, but i'm not sure, matches between French are not very good , plus they're close friends, psychologically it won't be easy to manage.
And I fear Richard will suffer physically.

Re: Gasquet vs Monfils: who will win the battle of friends??

It should be close, their encounter always have been. It's always strange to play a friend who knows how you play by heart.

They h2h is 1-1 I think.

That said, I hope Richie will prevail.

Re: Gasquet vs Monfils: who will win the battle of friends??

Their matches weren't close both in straight set with difference that match which Gasquet lost he had bad injury ( If I remember well it was elbow )

Re: Gasquet vs Monfils: who will win the battle of friends??

Can any1 explain why Monfils chooses to play the way he does?...

The defensive, retrieving style of game is suited to a guy like alberto martin who is small and has no weapons and has no hope...Monfils is a big man with big grounstrokes if he works hard to be more consistent, yet he chooses to play like an Albberto Martin sort of game?...

I hope this guy changes his style of game because he's so exciting to watch, woould be a shame if he doesn't have a game to back it up...
