Too many matches for Gael lately, he wasn't able to be aggressive like he was in Metz and had to rely on retrieving, plus being a little bit slower than usual made a big difference. His defence did not work because Davydenko is not a usual CC exchange player, he used DTLs from both wings with great efficiency thus making Monfils CC anticipation useless.

I think Monfils must have been tired, or at least I hope so.

Disgusting, disgusting match from him. Whenever I glanced at the livestream, it honestly looked as if he was trying to hit the intersection between the service line and the center line with every shot.

And those returns! When Monfils feels like it, he hits the most horrendous returns in pro tennis.+

Who cares if he was tired. Davydenko would have beaten him regardless. Well done Kolya

Kolya is a far better player than Monfils, so it was expected

He lost to Davy on grass, which is quite a feat ;)
