You really don't think Monfils is talented? You're crazy. Anyone who says the guy isn't gifted in terms of being a pure athlete is crazy. I just wish he would do more with it. He can rip forehands, pop off aces, and defend with the best of them. He has all the talent in the world, just has never been able to bring it together.

I think that's partly it...lots are frustrated at the fact that he is athletically gifted but is so passive 90% of the time in matches. And then the others don't like some of his antics which I don't think are too bad

Yeah I think people just think it's out of place in the sport, but I think that's part of playing a hometown player in their home slam...there's going to be a riled up crowd that can be taken advantage of.

It's unfortunate, the only women's players I find interesting (with the exception of Ivanovic) are not the best looking

How am i racist? i'm not actually a massive Tennis like you folks i only follow Nadal and major Slams so i don't know that many tennis players outside the top 10. Blake is crap that's why i didn't include him in it.

but...nadal has played monfils before many times including once this year..you have never seen any of those?
