Very tough win for James saving 3 MP
I wasn't even online yesterday, so I was surprised when I saw that result just now. Nice job toughing out the win.
Monfils is going to be a tough match. James leads their H2H 2-1, but they've never played on hard court (which is surprising) and the last time they met was at the 2007 Rome Masters - that's ages ago in tennis years.
Monfils was on court longer than James in his singles matches this week against Dent and Serra (4 of the 6 sets were TB's), so it's not like he's been demolishing his opponents. Monfils is also faster on court than James, so this match could be real interesting. To bad I won't be able to see it.
James & Andy beat Melo & Soares in their QF double match yesterday.
