Gilles came into the Oz open with a cold and a neck issue, he was seriously treading water to just make the 3rd round. He played to a high level for the 1st 2 sets but it basically finished him off, or should have had he been playing anyone bar Monfils.

He showed heart and fight Gilles and did all he could to win that match.

Monfils on the other hand is a total idiot. He came out with the game plan to out rally Gilles which was never gonna work hence why he was 2 sets down before Gilles got injured/ran out of gas.

From there the match was Monfils even though he had started with the wrong tactic, had he just attacked Gilles serves and been more aggressive. Letting a wounded player rally from the middle of the court and amble around to puff shots was just criminal.

Anyway proud of Gilles, but he will have nothing for the Murray match.

Lol the match wasn't the best quality. It was just because of the unending rallies in the baseline that what impressed people.

Gael

Great win for Gilles though. Should be a routine R4 match for Murray though which is great.

Does he have a cold and a neck issue every time he plays Monfils? Because every match between these two is just as shitty as this one.

i enjoyed this one big time, despite it was WTA level of tennis.

the drama and physical endurance was phenomenal

some great points between the pushing and again a stupid decision from Monfils to seal it up (this smash in the first point Simon serving to win the match...)

Simon almost fainted saving a break point (or at 15-30 was it) in the last set, was just a wow match

Prefer this compared to some routines happening lately

Good match, but I'm tired of their acting. Not even Aussie Open Top 10er in terms of time.

Just 18 Celsius when they played, 36 two days before.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

I don't understand most of the comments made in this thread from "supposed tennis fans". Do you guys just want a game filled with 6'6 power hitters serving out of a tree or what? I like variety. I like that a guy like Gilles Simon or David Ferrer can be successful in today's game as well. I want to see all different types of play. This whole "pushing" argument is just stupid. If Gilles didn't have some level of talent, he wouldn't be ranked consistently where he is. Ergo, his style is a valid form of play whether you like it or not. I guess I just don't, nor do I care to, understand some "fans" of tennis.

This. It's hard to understand how a person can appreciate a match like that.
