BP in the third: Dull hits a letcord that lands on the baseline. Monfils in wrongfooted: point Dull.

Point after that at deuce: Dull hits a letcord that lands way out. Not called by either the linesman or the umpire. Monfils stops playing. The umpire prevents Monfils from challenging because he didn't do it in the next 2 seconds.

Dull's career in a nutshell. All cheating and luck. My hate for Dull has raised even more.

Monfils continues to be awful in finals. Nadal was good in the 1st set, but quite poor in both the second and third. Monfils actually had some chances early in the 3rd, but then gifted a service game and wasted 0-40 with some terrible shots (and a non challenge on an out ball) the next game and collapsed entirely


the lack of credit and respect for Nadal blows my mind

Nadal is moving well and usually is pretty rusty/bad starting the season so these are positive signs. great tournament by Monfils! I can't wait for what, 8 days, bring on the Australian Open!

Congrats Rafa.

Congrats Monf also, you're such a clown, one of the best in the world, hopefully you will never enter the top 10 again.

Uncle Toni paying the umpires off again. Clear out yet no overrule. Monfils waiting for an overrule yet none, bit like Nadals match point against Federer at Cincy last year, clear out yet no overrule.
Black day for tennis.

Nadal may have won but I'm not impressed in the slightest. He has struggled by opponents the whole week, relying on chokes and some ridiculous luck. Doubt he will get past QF at AO in this form.

Lawl at that..Nadal played a bad 1st game in the second and 1 bad shot in the tiebreak (that CC coming to the net at 2-3)...Some eyes for tennis you have...IN the third he was not as great but far from poor..You simply over-dramatizing some kind of imginary stinkhood of the match just because the result is somehow against your partisan likes...

lol, who will beat him? Wawrinka? Berdych? Gulbis? Rosol? Federer?

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

I don't get why people are faulting the umpire. Monfils didn't challenge until after Nadal's next shot was already a clear winner. Monfils hit a very short, easy putaway slice expecting an out call but he DID try to move in the direction of Nadal's next shot. It was idiotic by Monfils, but I think the umpire made the right call

As usual, mostly hater posts.

For those who actually care about tennis: some very good ballstriking at points. Nadal hit very, very good forehands down the line most of the match which makes things very difficult for anyone. The backhand improved from the start of the tournament as well. Monfils played very well at points with an almost unplayable serve and some blistering forehands and both pushed each other physically.

Nadal doesn't quite seem at the peak of his physical powers at the moment but he is progressing and a 3 setter is probably a good thing. Good to see a nice tournament from Monfils as well, almost always fun to watch.
