Monfils is the most brainless player to ever play the game of tennis.

Why hit floaty balls into Igor's forehand. Just defies belief how you can be this stupid.

Yeah it was awful to watch from Monfils' perspective how he persisted with passive short moonballs giving Andreev everything he wanted for his forehand.

Clay tennis on a hard court.

Very close ball on the sideline by Andreev on the point Monfils dove and hurt his leg in the 2nd tb.
I'd like to see the hawkeye on that ball.

Easily the best match of the tourney so far...Andreev was just too solid.
Good effort and fight from Gael after not playing in a month or so. :yeah:

Props to Igor. After his exertions in the last two weeks, he could have not gone into this 100%. He played a good game and fought. Monfils on the other hand, putting in another masterclass of clueless tennis.

Great match to watch. Andreev's forehand is pretty sick.

There were more errors combined then winners combined. Both men were easily -10.

It was a match of players who would rather play on clay than on hard court.

Horrible result.

Come on Gael you should be tougher and better than this.

Igor did well to come through this - different surface, different time zone. Looks like it could have gone either way but impressed with Andreev.

Igor is one of the most boring players,no personality just flat out boring.Monfils has to stop playing far from the baseline,he changed that at RG and he started winning...

What a joke of RG semifinalist.
Igor was playing Umug final only two days ago on clay and yet he could beat Gael on totaly different surface in two tiebrakes. :rolleyes:

The worst Grand slam semi finalist in the history of tennis, for sure.
