Monfils led by two breaks in the 1st set and by one in the second :facepalm:

Ferrero :worship:

Gael was *4-1 in the first set. Could have easily taken it 6-2 given how he was in all of Mosquito's service games the first 3/4s of the first set, but completely fell apart with horrendous errors and lackadaisical play and by the end of the first set through the rest of the match, simply had no answers whatsoever to change the momentum against him. Made errors when he was going for his shots and was often too passive and allowed JCF to attack.

JCF really started hitting out with his shots after falling behind in the first set, served well, had good depth on his shots. Great competing and used all dimensions of the court expertly, used the dropshot effectively, really took advantage of Monfils' court positioning and play efficient offensive clay-court tennis. Awesome win for the Spaniard, he's still got it!

Ferrero was down 4-1 in the first set double break. Juanqui Continues his perfect record against Monfils to 3-0.

So so good seeing JCF again. Thought he might never come back.

Can't wait for one final Fed meeting.

I wonder whether I should just give up on Monfils.

Monfils does not play like a talented player at all. He just plays fetch like his K-Swiss commercial says.

It was a pleasure to see Juan Carlos hitting those beautiful FH winners; his BH solid and his net play very effective.
Love his fighting spirit! :hearts:
Gael returned almost everything as usaul, but JC stayed aggressive, which I think gave him the upper hand, especially in those long long rallies.

The commentators.:lol:
Wilks, if I were traveling with Gael, I'd need psychiatric help.
Koenig, I hear Rasheed is still recovering.:haha:

Some touches of brilliance there, some excellent forehands. Very glad with this, hope he can give Federer some resistance.

I knew JCF would win this in straights. He's just too patient for La Monf. Bad matchup for him.

Juan Carlos!!! :worship: Everybody should simply respect him for everything she has fought against to reach this point!

Gael :hug: Bad luck.

Bummed because I watched the first five games of this match then didn't record. Thrilled that Ferrero isn't just walking through this year.

Great win, it's so nice to see him back once more. Hopefully he will stay healthy now.

Gael :rolleyes: I would like to blame it on lack of matchplay, but I can't because Ferrero has played even fewer matches.

Mugfils :o

Sad to see a talented player (and potential slam winner) piss away his career by reveling in mediocrity. If he had 1/10 of Nadal's work ethic, he'd be a top 5 regular, not just another top 20 player who can lose to anyone on any given day.

Monfils :mad: Please stop clowning around and start fulfilling your potential.

Juanqui :worship: What a legend.

His career has been so trafic, with injuries and all. Hope to see him play some good tennis before he calls it a day. He deserves to retire on a high note.
