It's amazing how each time Monfils come back from injury as if nothing was happened. I thought this time it was more serious and didn't expect him at this level in January. Nice wins over Kohli and Haas. He will be a tricky opponent for a seed at the OA

I see French pusher is getting back stronger, he might do well in Melbourne if he keeps it up like this.

His powerful serve bailed him out a ton, but I think his stretching out for usual winners and wide retrieval threw off the traditional tommy. He just made haas hit hat extra ball and it saved him a lot, the defense won him the 2nd set. You didn't see the 0-40 tommy choke. Gael couldn't buy a first serve and tommy was just trying to be too fine with his backhand. Then he just giftwrapped the break.

Third set, he should've went down 0-2 but held from 0-40, and then he should've broken 0-40 at 3-3 only to throw that away.

Gael is still laboring, his athleticism and tommy's mental muggery won him this match.

The only frustrating thing is he is like a broken record when it comes to losing these close matches. He just showed that in perth and this match gave me flashbacks of the washington final against dolgopolov. I love watching him play but he pisses me off that he doesn't want to seize it a lot of times.

this pretty sums up the match.
At least glad Tommy is still eager and is playing one of his best tennis.
This should be another phenomenal season, if he keeps this level of play, except mental meltdowns.
