Re: The Magic Monfils Brotherhood ===<--@

Sorry, I just had a phone call, I kind of missed the end of the set, but it looked like an horrible errorfest to me.

Nole isn't playing well, so there's still hope.

I got out of the living-room to run to the computer when I saw Gerard Holtz starting his itws. I go back, thanks

They're showing handball now.

At least he's serving first in this 3rd set. Allez.

Re: The Magic Monfils Brotherhood ===<--@

He wins a game, it's been a while.
Still not playing so well, he's too passive atm. The French clan is looking worried too.

He's talking with the umpire, I hope he isn't calling for the physio, he looks fine to me.

Re: The Magic Monfils Brotherhood ===<--@

Perhaps this is part of his plan, play down to Nole's standards. lol. I am glad he held to begin the 3rd set. Now break!!! (Still trying to get over Venus' loss to Na Li)

Re: The Magic Monfils Brotherhood ===<--@

Oh, I had no idea Venus had lost!

The Serbs are making more noise, the Frenchies could be more supportive, Gaël needs help!

He's way, way, way too far from his baseline, is looking a bit drained already.

Shit, it was looking so good!

40-40 on Nole's serve, allez!
(Sorry if I'm sometimes late, the Channelsurfing livestream is a bit delayed.)

BP Gaël! Good serve from Nole, no chance.

Re: The Magic Monfils Brotherhood ===<--@

Truc, the Frenchies need to get off their collective asses!!! lol. Cheer him on! You know how Gael likes to play to the crowd!!! lol. Yes, Venus lost, and Serena too. Lovely. At least I can get more sleep now. (Dinara's the only one I really care about now in the women's draw).

It's on France 2 again, Pixie!

Grrrr, Nole holds.

Great, France 2, they showed 2 points. That was very helpful. ^^

Re: The Magic Monfils Brotherhood ===<--@

0-40, 3 UE (sometimes after long rallies). He's exhausted, I guess.

Nole comes to the net, broken. It's painful to watch atm!

Re: The Magic Monfils Brotherhood ===<--@

Truc, what I don't understand is, if he's exhausted why not trying and serve and volley some? I mean its not as if Gael doesn't have nice touch.

Re: The Magic Monfils Brotherhood ===<--@

There just was an incredible point - won by Gaël.
But even then the Frenchies are quiet! Gaël is trying to fire up the crowd a bit.

30-30 on Nole's serve, allez!

I know! And he should have done that too when Nole was so frustrated to save some energy.
He was cruising on his service games.

The match is much better now, there are some great points, out of the blue!
