It might be irrelevant but anyway a good win by Monfils who could maybe reach a quaterfinal, why not??

I was shocked. At times Monfils was actually inside the baseline..hitting ground strokes no less!

Monfils played well, very solid on serve, 32 winners, also came to the net a few times and was quite successful there... A good match from him and he was obviously trying to take the ball earlier.
Then again, he wasn't tested much.

If Monfils actually started playing consistently on the baseline and taking the ball early...he will be top 10. No doubts in my mind.

They said during the telecast that Gael can run the 100m in 10.5!!! He'd be an Olympic gold medalist right now if he was in track instead of tennis :eek:

He'd be an Olympic gold medalist right now if he was in track instead of tennis :eek:No, I remember some French athletes talking about that in interviews during RG (because he's friend with a lot of them and sometimes attends their training) and they said he definitely isn't "explosive" enough to be a sprinter. Maybe a 400 m specialist.

Gael might finally be coming good. He has a great shot at the second week.

If his name was Gail Monfils he'd have an olympic gold and a WR shame....

His team probably painted that fake line 5m behind the baseline just so he wouldn't go back any further than 10-15m.

A possible rematch of Monfils vs Nalbandian comes closer. Hope for Gael to win it again!!
