Great comedy this match. It's unbelievable how passive these guys can be.

Monfils should have never come back to the tour after his injury. He's now even a bigger joke than he was before.

This pic completely sums up Gilles effort in this match, left it all out there on court. According to tweets he was having to be helped to walk after but wouldn't accept a wheelchair.

The tape of this match should be used by Guantanamo Bay agents as a legit form of torture.

And yet they gave their heart out there and played so many long rallies for almost 5 hours.
One word is to be said: RESPECT!
why wouldnt they try to finish a point rather than making 60 shot rallies if they didnt have anything in the tank

It's just the way Simon plays. Monfils on the other-hand can play however he likes, sadly it's always the way Simon likes to play every time they face-off. In matches with big hitters Monfils is so much more enjoyable to watch.

This image just screams for a caption. I am too shy to do it though .

Simon maybe doesn't have much choice, but Monfils can really hit huge shots, yet most of the time he doesn't. I could get that if it paid off, but playing like that only to lose, mind boggles
