Don't get overexcited people, Monfils was about 9 months off-court. It's very likely to happen that he will lose badly in the next round.

Great match by Gael :worship: , he was moving well, serving like a god and with an improved slice and volley.

I'd say stay healthy but that sounds stupid, so...just don't get injured too soon Gael!

Come on Gael! :D

21 aces in such a quick match is borderline unbelievable. I'm sure he's so happy to be back.

:sobbing::scared: I keep seeing Oli losing. I hope he isn't growing younger

I think he now has only 2 wins out of his last 19 ATP MD matches played :eek: (and one win by retirement of the opponent)

Why is everyone so surprised with the aces? It´s a fast surface against Rochus. Monfils would only need to kick serve to ace Rochus.

Also 28/28 (14/14 in each set) of points won when first serve is in. How often does 100% happen?

I fully expect to see Gael dancing to that song on court before this year is through. :D

I just hope he doesn't hurt himself while doing it. :facepalm:

Allez Monf!

If you want to hit 21 aces in 9 games, do it against Rochus.

Even Gasquet is able to trash Rochus so really, that doesn't say anything.
Monfils and Tsonga will NEVER win a Slam.
