Default Marseille: Gicquel def. Monfils 4-6 7-6(1) 7-5

A very good comeback from Gicquel, he was down 4-6 1-3* and twice down a break in the 3rd set.

Monfils was strugling with fatigue and a couple of different minor injuries throughout the match. He just seems so fragile.

His body is always goig to hold him back. When you're built like that and play sport, injuries are a part of life.

Amazing by Gicquel!

I wouldn't be surprised if he enters Top 20 until the end of the year.

Very poor from Monfils. He should have won this. Far too many unusual errors.

Monfils

Gicquel stuck in there, while Monfils continued to have physical problems the entire match.

There were moments when Monfils was agressive and then that went away, but some quality rallies throughout the match.

His style of play doesn't really help things. Those big acrobatic slides on a hardcourt won't do any good for your ankles...

Great as his win was today mate, he won't be making top 20

Top 40 yeah...but I wouldn't expect much higher

Monfils is too stubborn to adapt his game style - he's been told by past coaches that he's going to shorten his career and risks permanent injury with these devil-may-care acrobatics, and he's said this is who he is and he has to be himself and play how he feels.

Admirable, but he can pretty much forget decent results with any consistency, I feel.

Monfils is a joke.

Gicquel is a demon indoors.

I cannot understand why so many of the "8 players of the future" are physically in such poor physical condition. Djokovic, Gasquet and Murray are also physically vunerable.
