Because of his ranking he doesn't participate at Roland Garros I think. That's too bad.
Have you not been following his story?! He won the US Wildcard to RG through his challenger run - that's the reason he's in France - he's in the main draw!

Brian I'm a fan already
He is so talented,has great feeling for the ball,hope he stays injury free.
Would be fucking great if he draws Troicki or Roddick for example and schools them in RG.

He got a wild card, dude.

The three best parts of Brian's game really came to the fore today. His returning, his backhand, and his depth of shot/redirect ability. He's got class ballstriking ability for sure and it's really hard to put him on defense, he controls the baseline really well and he's got awesome feel for the ball too and is able to hit great shots from all over the court.

With that being said, Monfils had no business being at this event. He could barely move, and was lackadaisical most of the match. Why did he take a WC and potentially injure himself further? Such a stupid decision with RG coming.

Agree with all, so happy for the guy.

and no, me too, but it worked after refreshing (I missed the point that made it 10-9).

No the same here. Too bad would have loved to see him winning those final two points. He also has a decent chance for the semifinal against Kukushkin who certainly isn't unbeatable.
