Doha SF: Monfils schools Nadalniacki 6-3 6-4

NID, although I expected an easier win for Gael :worship:
Monfils won the last 5 games in a row to finish the match off, down 1-4.


Rafa, you choking idiot :eek:

Rafa is now the Wozniacki of the ATP world. Ranked so high. but cannot defeat any decent player :rolleyes:

Incredible last game, such high quality, Rafa fought so well, but Gael was :worship:

Ooookay, I just watched the 2nd set, but what I say was great tennis quality by both players.
Nadal played some volleys who killed Monfils so many times and was leading by a break.

But then, Monfils woked up and played in a great level, I think it was better than 2010 Paris SF vs Fed. And that match was epic.

So many "flying points", Monfils can jump really damn high. I really like this player, he makes every match an exho.
Even when he Broke Rafa at 4-4, that game was absolutely AMAZING for a returner, that highlights must be recorded.
One of the little things I like about Rafa is he never loses a point until it's definetly lost.

Monfils ran more than Rafa, and that's enough to say. I always loved his speed.
But yeah... He was a little clownish so many times, come on! it's funny :D

France has a title in the bag.
Go Gael! Go Jo!!!

I wish Qatar did not buy only PSG but also Roland Garros and moved it to Doha.

Nadal just lacks any fire at the moment, he let Monfils walk all over him!

Having said that Gael was electric at times. :worship:

I only watched the end of the 2nd set but I've seen nothing of Rafa's aggressive BH he showed earlier this tournament, only pushing with it.
And Monfils played very good, no clowning. That's the Monfils I like, not the Clownfils I dislike ;)

Disgusting performance by Rafa, should've won that second set about 6-1

Amount of close games won by Nadal: A big fat ZERO, surprise surprise

Great for Gael :yeah: Hope this'll get his career going that step further, what a fight from La Monf :worship:

At least Rafa didn't give up, he fought so well and played great!

Please make at least the R4 in AO :hug:

Gael, bravo, you played a great match and good luck tomorrow, although I'll be rooting for Tsonga.

Nadull helpless against the movement and power of Monfils. If Monfils could play like this all the time maybe he would achieve something.

Great rallies here, especially the penultimate point.

This is the Monfils that I've always liked. Watch him play like a defensive clown 20 meters behind the baseline tomorrow and for the rest of the year.

So much potential, but the tennis brain is just simply not there...
