They showed the end of the match during the rain delay. I actually was more impressed with Kasiri than Monfils.

What do you think are Monfil's strengths? Ie, why is he Number 1?

Well if he uses the kind of strategy he used at 6-5, I can see why he's number 1.

I was impressed with the weight of Kasiri's strokes.

Problem is that I think Kasiri is only about 5'9"

Yeah, I wasn't really impressed with Monfils. I expected something much better from the #1 ranked juniors and someone who won 3 straight slams.

I think you were expecting too much because you were influenced by the sudden shift from Roddick-Federer to that match.

It is the least comfortable surface for Monfils so for him to win it is a good statement.

It says a whole lot more about the other players on the junior circuit, doesn't it?

That's ridiculous. How much junior tennis have you watched exactly? I'd just like to know your depth of experience with what you're discussing.

I wasn't impressed either. He is just another Roddick(big serve, forehand) except he's black.
