Monfils is just not a fighter. In fact, I'm pretty sure he can only win a match if he's cruising despite all his gaffes and fooling around. Has he ever won a tight match were he didn't seem way better than the other guy anyway?
Probably not. Not to mention he's lost matches where he seemed like the better guy ( like last week against Mathieu ).
But he was careless today and it didn't seem like he cared much.
Fish better win todays final. If he doesnt, then all hard work Northug did on cross country 50 km is down the toilet. Mardy`s record in finals is pathetic, only hopeful sign is that Korolev is in his 1st ATP final ever and he should be nervous
