The guy in the yellow shirt has some potential. He may play on the grand slam level if he keeps practising...ehm pushing.

He needs to work on his fitness though. The other guy seems more experienced in this kind of exchange.

Great match though, easily the best match of the tournament.

Faster court would probably mean these two would hit only 68 instead of 71

Simon isn't even trying lol. There are 12-13 year olds at my club that go more for the shots. Yet he won the point. Pushmon strikes again

As one poster explained, Simon came there barely off injury and with a flu - he did fine imho. However, mind boggling that Monfils wasn't even trying, and he can hit the crap out of the ball when he wants.

Yeah, but 71 shots? And at 0-15? It was a while since I watched the video (not watching this again) but surely at some point before the 71-shot mark, it would have been reasonable to attempt to pull the trigger?

Yea of course. Or maybe that was a tactic to wear Monfils out

Here's a higher quality, longer, less pushy, more powerful, more entertaining, faster, better rally.
