Ferrer's career is over. He can't play when it matters, always choking when he has a shot at doing anything big. He'll never win a Slam, probably never make a final. He just doesn't have the mental ability. He just outchoked fucking Gael Monfils. That's the definition of a choker. What a wasted second half of his career. Just a pathetic player when it's important.

It was a good match. The difference was about the super-serve of Gael, that saves a lot of times the french guy ass, and the horrible net game of Ferrer, specially in the end.

Anyway, congrats to Monfils, and good luck vs. Roger. Although, I think he will loose in straights...

I just don't like Monfils when he does his stupid yells after people make mistakes. And how he stops play to catch air by getting crowd to make noises. That's really bending the rules. He has done it time and time again. After a long rally that he wins and is out of breath, he does his stupid little thing.

Oh and he does fake his tiredness too. How many times he looks like he is dead but jumps around like a rabbit?

Great match :worship:

David came out a bit slow in the first set and the multiple breaks cost him the set, but you could see the momentum he had gave him the second set very easily. Third set was probably the best of the match, Ferrer was a break up but lost it due to some great play from Gael. Fourth set was weird, Monfils seemed to roll his ankle a tiny bit and got broken immediately to go down 2-0 before play was suspended. Then Ferrer cruised in the set but was down and out in the 5th set, down 1-4 and down 2 MPs at 3-5*. Great comeback, saved another MP at 5*-6.

Ferrer had his chance at 6-6 BP, but couldn't convert, and then had a boatload of errors in the final game. Great fight from both, Ferrer really brings out the best in Monfils it seems and Ferrer doesn't have a super dependable big serve to get out of trouble which was his falling today.

He will never win a slam, but that's because he ins't good enough. He has fantastic mental abilty, and that is what makes him a great player. Most players that "never" chokes has a least one huge weapon that they have so much confidence in, Ferrer has to grind out every point.

Well said.
I really like Ferrer a lot,his attitude and his fair play is a credit to the sport but sadly for him, he just doesn't have any big weapon in his game which would allow him to regularly challenge the top players.
He is just the perfect example of how to maximize your talents.

An entertaining and fun match played in good spirit. Monfils who didn't bother too much with the antics and by his standard was aggressive. If he wasn't clownish this day, then no need to call him that.

Ferrer just fights so hard, keeps on running, looked like he could play for another 5 hours. He saved match points, but always going to be hard for him as he doesn't have the big weaponry. Many times he has won matches when he shouldn't have, but today he couldn't get it done.

Sensational match. I was pulling for Gael to do this for France and for tennis. thats the only way a "fighter" like ferrer can win matches feeding on the opponents nerves and keeping the ball in play. My heart sank when Monfils got tight and wasted the mp. nothing on his shots. His fathers face told a story. Made for root for him even more. Gale is great for the game. Just a freak of a athlete, pumped up and you never know what to expect. Loving the huge forehand top break ferrer off the return in the 5th. Thats how you hit a tennis ball, ferrer you gutless pusher.

I do hope ferrer slowly buggers off now. The guy has preyed off others mistakes with grinding and grunting. An awful combination to say the least. As a result of his limited talent, poor ball striking he is labelled as a fighter when he's not. He sucks in tie breaks and in 5 setters and finally vs top players. Ferrer doesn't fight he plays not to lose. He defends and defends and defends like a tick thats hard to get rid of. The guy just clings on and abs away. A terrible player to watch. Monfils was the bigger man today. The better player won. Monfils not only has bigger fortitude buy has more game. he was the one making something of the points and so on.

Gael took out the trash today and he did it for his country and the RG crowd. What a story. What a match. What a man :worship:

Gael Monfils. One of the most disgusting human beings I have ever seen. What a clown with stupid antics.

I usually think Monfils is a clown but this match I didn't see any antics. I was actually impressed with Monfils' UNclownish behavior in this match.

And look what happens when he focuses on his tennis, he out Ferrer-ed Ferrer. Based on his last 2 matches I didn't think Monfils had a chance but something about Paris brings out Monfils' best.

Monfils winning with his poor sportsmanship is bad for tennis. :sad:

I know you people only say those things as a pavlovian reflex, but if Monfils could somehow play like that all the time and stay healthy, he'd actually be a huge asset to the sport. I can't think of another player with so much mediatic potential.

Great win, Clownfils :yeah:

Good tournament anyway, David. No.6 in the world, gains points. Not a bad result at all, David will continue to have a solid year. Gael solidifies his place in the top 8 :cool:

This kind of reasoning frustrates me. Just because Ferrer improved on his 3rd round exit of last year does not mean it was a good tournament for him. He is one of the best clay courters and didn't even live up to his seeding. Thrashed his opponents then lost a close one.

Ferrer is one of the best clay courters not to have reached the semi-finals of Roland Garros at least once.

Clownfils is usually a bigger pusher than Ferrer. Get a clue.

Usually? thats a weak word. thats assuming things. NEVER assume things. Oh and Ferrer is much bigger pusher. For ferrer thats the only way he can play. Why do you think Monfils beats guys like federer in the paris semis etc. Take your clue and shove it.

Great match between two of the most aggressive and determined competitors. The crowd possibly made the difference.

Monfils always performs his best in Paris but would be nice to see him this aggressive more often.

Sensational match. I was pulling for Gael to do this for France and for tennis. thats the only way a "fighter" like ferrer can win matches feeding on the opponents nerves and keeping the ball in play. My heart sank when Monfils got tight and wasted the mp. nothing on his shots. His fathers face told a story. Made for root for him even more. Gale is great for the game. Just a freak of a athlete, pumped up and you never know what to expect. Loving the huge forehand top break ferrer off the return in the 5th. Thats how you hit a tennis ball, ferrer you gutless pusher.

I do hope ferrer slowly buggers off now. The guy has preyed off others mistakes with grinding and grunting. An awful combination to say the least. As a result of his limited talent, poor ball striking he is labelled as a fighter when he's not. He sucks in tie breaks and in 5 setters and finally vs top players. Ferrer doesn't fight he plays not to lose. He defends and defends and defends like a tick thats hard to get rid of. The guy just clings on and abs away. A terrible player to watch. Monfils was the bigger man today. The better player won. Monfils not only has bigger fortitude buy has more game. he was the one making something of the points and so on.

Gael took out the trash today and he did it for his country and the RG crowd. What a story. What a match. What a man :worship:

:cuckoo:

Stop spewing garbage. Someone needs to petition the mods to allow you to change your name to Bandwagoner's Mate.

Why do you think Monfils beats guys like federer in the paris semis etc. Take your clue and shove it.

Because Monfils always plays his best in France where he can get crowd support, then tends to play clownishly elsewhere.
