No thread? :confused:

Monfils beated Tsonga for the first time on his career to reach the final. :eek: Not sure if he is the favourite to win tomorrow as I think Ljubo is much clever than him but Gael has been playing really well since that DC clash against Argentina. I would say it`s going to be a 50/50 of possibilities for each player tomorrow.

I would be happy if Gael captured a title. His stats in finals are pathetic.

the atmosphere for this match was strangely very subdued, think it affected tsonga.

I'm a bit surprised to see Gael win this matchup indoors, good for him. Don't think Jo is at his best right now though.

Tsonga :retard: :tape: He shouldn't be losing indoors to Monfils :spit: On clay ok but all other surfaces should favor Tsonga :shrug:

Well done Gael!! Is it just me, (not intending to offend anyone) or does Monfils not seem to have many fans? :confused:

Tsonga obviously wasn't fully fit, but it was a great match. Totally love both of them!

The match point was pretty cool :) And the 'hand shake' was awesome! :lol:

The crowd isn't very vocal when two French players have to play each other... Though I think JWT is their favorite.

Because he's cocky for someone who's achieved next to nothing in the world of tennis. Most French players don't have many fans as they have negative qualities not positive qualitites. Outside of the French people, they aren't well liked.

Oh really? Well Simon and Gasquet definitely have strong fan bases. I'm well aware what people believe the negativities of Simon's game are, i say game specifically because he is genuinely nice guy off court. Always puzzled me that Tsonga doesn't have that many fans either.

Simon is liked off court because he's got one of those infectious personalitites. Lots of people dislike Gasquet because he's unprofessional and didn't deliver and win slams.


I pretty much dislike all of the French players.

^^ You really need to stop saying 'people' when you actually are saying 'me'.

The more I see of your posts, the less impressed I become. You're saying that Monfils and Tsonga are the popular players on tour who are well liked by the majority of neutral fans. I think not.

Neutral fans? :spit: Tsonga is certainly popular, with Monfils it is more either love him or hate him thing, the latter more frequent on MTF, but not necessarily otherwise. Interestigly enough, you decided to ignore the comment that Gasquet has a huge fan base and regurgate why you don't like him, pretendng you're speaking on behalf of 'people'. Clown comes to mind.

good match, Tsonga is still recovering from injury as he would have won this otheriwse.

As for Tsonga being popular, he is for sure. His matches are always full of people and very loud (this def applies at the AO), he is one of the most dynamic and athletic players around. His energy and charisma is something that is sorely lacking with generic players like Monaco around. Tsonga is a enigma who connects with the crowds and cretes an atmosphere. His effortless power and french flair are amazing.

Monfils clearly the top Frenchmen at the moment. He should take the title tomorrow.

Monfils has been playing some good stuff lately. MTFtards wont actually admit that though.

i thought the usage of the word clown in this post was the best grammatical fit in this particular part of the passage...

Gael returned well, served more aces than Tsonga, hit some convincing passes and kept focused in the 3rd set. A deserved win which I am very happy about. :D

Outside of the French people, they aren't well liked.You're delusional. The French players are one of the more popular players out there in the real world. I bet they disproportionally higher than average number of fans than their success and number of trophies would suggest.

That you hate French players is not a shocking big deal. You Englunders hate Andy Murray too, and for the same reason (smutty xenophobic tabloids pretty much ordered you to do so)

Stats to back up your first sentence? The amount of times I've seen empty seats when French players are on court is depressing.

Englunders might dislike Murray, however we don't stick his image in magazines at the age of 14 pretending that he's going to win 1000 slams like the French did with Gasquet.

I don't hate any players, I dislike a few players like Nadal, Federer, Tsonga, Monfils and Murray. But not hate. I just don't like their tennis, that's all.



@Oranges, Gasquet has a big fanbase probably because he's the only player who isn't irritating to watch. However most of his fans are sheep who overrate him. So his fans aren't even real fans. Clueless actually.

Well, at least now you're only speaking for yourself, not the general public, not that it makes it more than a teeny bit less clownish
