Gael looked awesome against Troicki & Rafa looked great against Youzhny so hopefully should be a fantastic match. Could see it going either way. Hope it's competitive & we see arguably the two most athletic players on tour showing us some of their skills. Good match up.
It's going to be intrested to see how Monfils is going to play this match. Will he come so often at the net as he has done throught the tournament? will he stay 5 m behing the baseline? will he be aggresive from the baseline?
If Monfils manages to keep his head screwed on tight during the entirety of the match, he might have a chance. He played pretty well today.
Rafa actually played very well today and as he's been elevating his level of play with every match, I trust Rafa to take this in two, maybe three if Monfils manages to play out-of-his-mind for one set.
