Monfils was pretty close to making it a little closer, but he really had no chance to win.

Yes, but this isn't that surprising. He's still very young and adjusting to the differences on tour. Remember that Robredo is nearly top 10, has very solid groundies, and is extremely fit. Just mentally, its going to be difficult for a kid to beat a guy like that, but I'm sure the physical aspect was a factor as well.

I think the first set started close and then Robredo starting pulling away. I think then Monfils went out mentally. Hopefully, someone who saw the match will post an analysis.

Yeah, he'll get there for sure. He's definitely moving forward in a pattern similar to top players in the past. Winning challengers and most first round matches in his first full year. Already a couple big wins. Sometime soon, the breakout will likely come in a smaller event :)

Young and Geal just are not strong yet. I would love to see them play Ljubo. they need 3 or 4 more years.

Young and Monfils should not be in the same sentence together :p Monfils IS ready. That's why he's been able to win challengers and serveral of his first round matches. Young is NOT ready.

Monfils got a WC into Miami :banana:

Monfils is a step above Kuznetsov who is a step above Young.

Why would you wish a bad draw on a developing player? :shrug: Yeah, he'd probably get creamed by the top guys. So?

Duiz, that is such a great shot of Masha.

IMO nothing Monfils has to blame himself. An in-form Robredo would have been too good for many other players as well. I think it's too far-fetched expecting Monfils too quickly to win much more than he did so far this year.

Also Monfils didn't play the most solid tennis in his first round match either. He struggled past Morrison and Monfils had to go over lots of deuces in his service games. The chances Morrison didn't take are taken by a player like Robredo when playing well.

Yes. I really like her game too, I watched her first round at the USO last year :)

Monfils actually played better than the scorboard shows. He hit some really nice winners, he was just a little inconsistent. And Robredo played really well. But overall, I was impressed.

from what i saw it looked like a lot of games went to deuce, and gael was a bit unlucky to take just 4 games.

If most of their games went to deuce then Tommy just played the bigger points better!!!!
Allez Monfils!!

The fact that people think its worth making a thread when Monfils loses shows just how well he has done for himself thus far :D

I agree, i think monfils is a good choice for any WC unlike some young players eg young. Monfils has proved he deserves a wc, when he has got them (by winning matches).

The only thing Monfils misses out on by getting so many WCs is the points he could get for going through qualies ;)

I'm so glad Tommy won! Since he is my favourite.

Plus Monfils is probably my least favourite player, I saw him play last year and he was so rude and arrogant - ugh!

Go Tommy :) Now he plays Enqivst who is one of my favourite also! Wish I could see them play :)

i'd rather see these youngesr players play challengers than play qualies.

No, this thread was clearly created to humour Robredo's massive fanbase.

I agree with you,L.J.
I like Tommy - Monfils on the other hand,I don´t like his attitude on court at all.If he get´s better and this conteniues,Hewiit will come off smelling like a rose!
