Devvarman with his style of "no weapon just get the ball back" can't defeat the master of grinding. Mediocre match.

I wish Somdev would have drawn Lu instead of Gael.

Somdev was driving Monfils crazy in the 1st set. Really looked the more likely player to win the set. Hit an awful volley at break point while up 4-3 though.

Didn't see this match but it must have taken 8 hours to finish :lol: You couldn't pay me to watch these two pushers occupy the same court :o

Monfils was serving for it at 6-5 and Somdev broke back to send it to a tiebreaker...I thought he had a chance there but when Gael won it was pretty much over

I have only seen the first set, lots of long rallies, I was about to shout at Gael "move up the court" more than once. :o

Monfils vs De Bakker should be good. Anyway good solid opener for monfils

yes that match will be good ,de bakker isnt type of opponent that monfils prefers but i believe in gael abilities.

Thiemo will destroy this pusher.

Thiemo will destroy this pusher.

Well I saw their match at ABN-AMRO tournament which Monfils won pretty easily, so I will be surprised if Thiemo beats him. I think Monfils will just have to much firepower for him.
