Bad for the game, Stepanek was passive through out half of the match, no first serve, Monfils as moronic as usual

As the commentator said best at the end of the second set, Sexy was 'moving to the net like a guard dog in heat.' :haha:

Poorly played by Radek except the end of 2nd set. It's a shame to see someone like Monfils in final of a big tournament.

I doubted Monfils could get through Radek, but he managed to pull through. He's going to need much better play to beat Nole.

Pretty poor match, both players choked at times.

Stepanek just couldn't get his gameplan down and missed too many easy volleys. Monfils just junked his way to the win really. Easy title for Djokovic now.

Good quality tennis?

Stepanek's volleying was half strength at best overall, terrible for the first set and a half. Not to mention his serving.

Monfils groundstrokes were pretty awful, just throwing 20mph junk, the only winners he hit were passing shots.

Probabaly won't beat Djokovic tomorrow but I'm so glad he came through in this one :D especially after that distastrous 2nd set

IMO good match of two unique players :yeah:

Monfils surprised me with good decision at 4:4 .deuce. in the third set when he played backhand from the service line directly into Stepanek's chest. Monfils usually plays the most shitty tennis of those positions among top players.

Lucky Gael: Guez instead of Wawrinka, Benneteau instead of Federer, Cilic instead of Verdasco, Stepanek instead of Del Potro. It looks like en route to the final in Marseille, Metz or Lyon ;)

Good outcome for Soderling.

Monfils can win tomorrow only if Novak plays with a wooden racquet and the umpire allows the crowd to pelt the latter with half-full Evian 0.5 flasks :)

What else can you do when someone stands at the net each time? Gael did the right tactics against Radek which also explains his good h2h record.

Do you even understand how this sport works?

Are you an idiot?

There were numerous baseline rallies where Monfils could have attacked before Stepanek took the upperhand and came into the net. (Monfils could do nothing with Stepaneks backhand slice approaches)

With someone with such a supposedly 'big' forehand, he didn't show any of it today.

But this is no surprise coming from a Nadal and Simon fan :haha:

Yes, he did well to choke away the match in the second and had to rely on silly errors from Stepanek to get it done.

Honestly to piss away a lead so many times and still get it done, that requires some impressive mental toughness. Neither one of the players was playing especially well, but Stepanek was putting a lot of pressure.

Yes, Stepanek couldn't do it for example last week when lost triple match point to D'Joke and lost 8 out of 10 games after that.

Yes, if forced to come up with the goods. Stepanek handed it to him.
