Allez La Monf!!!!! Solid performance with some flashes of brilliance and entertainment . Nico next hope he can pull the upset.

Default Houston R1: Monfils d. Blake 7-6 7-5

James had to save 12 out 15 BPs throughout the match. struggled to hold serve in basically every service game except for a couple of games at the start of 2nd set when he broke Monfils and had a 3-0* lead. 1st serve % right below 50% but in many games he had was at 0%. at it end it was too much. Some nice shots from both as you would expect, combined with some blatant errors.

Predictable outcome in clay. Gael may give some fight to Nico, but the match is in Almagro's hands, really.

I don't think it was a factor. Gael would have won this on a fast HC tonight.

Don't know if Gael is fit enough to trouble Nico otherwise it would be a pretty even match. h2h is 2-2 with Almagro pulling an upset in Acapulco's final in 2009.

I didn't watched the match, so cannot disagree with you. Just that before the match, Gael was favourite because of the surface. If it was in fast/medium HC, I would give a bit of the edge to James...

Gael Even when you win I'm depressed. Stop sucking.

That match at AO when he was drinking Coca Cola. Really?

just to give you an idea of how much this match was one sided; Monfils's odds were around 1.58 right before the match only to stay constantly at 1.40 or below during the entire first set (apart from the break). James was just too erratic to trouble Monfils and was playing without a 1st serve to back up his UEs.
One has to appreciate his efforts though. Hope he can have a decent run at US open and then call it a career.

Stick a fork in Blake, he is done. Anyone to put him out of his misery?

Retire for your fans old fella.

Good to see Monfils back and healthy here.

This coming USO may be the end for James, hopefully he can win a few rounds.
