How badly Gael choked.... how many breakpoints.... when he took a lead in second... he also lost it...

But he played with Mathieu 5 out of 9 of doubles events he participated last. Does it have something in common :shrug: :tape: :lol:

Gael is in a pretty big slump right now :scared:

yeah used to be pimp, now is a slump...

and i even cannot vote for him as fave high player 195 cm and above as he's 193 cm.
also can't vote as the biggest choker because PHM still wins this one.

fcking monflis he cost me in an undisclosed fantasy game, what a P.O.S. against almagro who has been stuck at mediocre level since like 3 years ago when he was expected to do something, wtf Monflis. He has gone out in the first round in all his tournaments this year except 2 including this one where he got to 2nd round.

It seems some of the youngsters - Murray, Monfils, Gasquet, Berdych are having a bad time of late. Monfils is in the worse slump though.

he made a doha final :p

last year at the same time similar words were said about one year older Baghdatis. let's see how things can go further. allez Gael and sorry about your fantasy game.

It seemed that Almagro was dictating play, he took more risks so he got a serve down in the second but the outcome of the match never seemed in doubt. Sorry Nathii, i don't see a choke here :wavey:

Monfils appears to be in a slump, if i am not wrong he is 1-7 since Doha, even though he is not defending anything important he runs the risk of being unseeded at the French Open.

When I was leaving the library around beginning of the first set, Gael had around 14 breakpoints not converted.

Almagro must have played The Best Level at The Most Important Points :angel:

I think Gael only has 2 bps in first set with 0 conversion and 5 in the second set with 1. Almagro is the one with many bps.

Unfortunately, I could not bring up the live scores page to get the stat now

this only means i was a good student and not looking much at the scoreboard :p i am 97% sure i came across the post in livescore thread about choking all those chances and perhaps the poster was wrong with giving the name of the wrong player. sorry for that.

however, the 'haters' might say i am a bad poster and misleading people.

perhaps you're right... he had 2 bps and i was going through some pages in the thread and a hysterical someone increased this number to the number of hundreds bucks lost :p

Monfils didn't choke, he just ran out of gas and ideas towards the end
