Benneteau wins 3-6 6-3 7-5

Gael

first round loss again and what a choke! He had 2 mp's on his own serve at 5-3 40-15 in the 3rd...

Monfils is going nowhere fast.I dont know if this guy has the effort.He seems like a retriever for a guy his size.He is not putting power in his shots and his serve can be erractic.

Monfils is a mug of a tennis player. To think we once spoke of him in the same company as Djokovic, Murray and Berdych.

He says he needs to find a coach because not having one is distracting him from focusing on his tennis.

Trouble is, he never listens to them when he does have them and they try and actually do something to improve his results.

Has he suffered from the downfalls of being over hyped. I think it plays a dangerous mental game with young players being put on a sort of pedestal before they've had time to truly develop. I think out of everyone nadal has handled it the best, but it is still a very dangerous route to take. While the flattery is nice when you get it and are winning, when their age starts catching up to their game and they drop a bit, the world comes crashing on them and they really don't know how to handle it.

Don't like Monfils' game at all. For all his physique, he has next to no real power to his shots.

The kid is so athletic but he just cant win.
Get your head on straight Gael.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

If he wants to have a future, he needs to dedicate himself and stop believing his hype.

He has no power in his shots because he doesnt go for much and depends on his speed, not to mention the ugly long forehand technique.
