Pretty awful first set from Gael, from then on he played quite well, however. Cilic's level dropped off as well, and his forehand was off the mark too often. It's nice to see Gael fight through a match like this, his serve saved him a lot in this one.

A couple of stunning points that Gael won at 4-2 in the 2nd set and again at the beginning of the 3rd set. :eek:

Stepanek or Del Potro next will be a tough either way.

What a clowns match, one of the most boring first sets I've ever seen, afterwards some spectacular shots and that's about it

Cilic can play great tennis for patches of the match but then his level drops. Was very consistent the first set but couldn't keep it up.
Gäel at his showman best, some great gets out there.

Cilic could have won this in two if he didn't botch that break chance in the second set. Still a pretty good year for him and # 13 is not bad at all.

It was so funny to see Monfils defend like a madman and run like the wind, only to then play a mediocre dropshot and watch cilic trip over himself, still get there on time puffing like an old man, and dump his shot in the bottom of the net.

Ugh, that was a really bad match from Cilic. His forehand is really inconsistent, it really killed him in the match. Also, his net play isn't very good. He hit some crappy overheads, and Monfils was able to get it back easily.
His movement isn't great, but at 6'6, you can't expect it to be.

Still, a good season for him. Hopefully he will work hard and rest well in the offseason and be ready foor 2010 :)

as usual, the crowd carrying a French through the SF :o
neither player was doing things specially well, but Monfils was the one who got away with it
