Great matchup between two of the most talented players on the tour. Who ever serves the best will win this match. Allez La Monf!!! Two finals in your first three events.

I was wondering what your name was about.. I get it now.. I get it.

Monfils has put on the miles and should be overwhelmed here. Berdych is getting consistently clinical against guys below around 5 in the world.

The court is playing perfectly for Berdych imo. Any chance he gets he will crush the ball, and Monfils will be diving everywhere just to keep up.

Gael has to come out, serve hard, and play aggressively from the beginning. That isn't his natural gameplan, and he soon retreats into passive/defensive mode, which is unlikely to be enough against Berdych unless his timing is off.

Should be easy for Berdych.
Yep. Needing three sets to dispatch of Simon-Version-2012 is not a good sign for Monfils. Still, with Monfils, you just never know for sure and it isn't that Berdych is playing lights-out quality tennis right now.

I think Berdych should be able to win this match though Monfils has his French crowd.. :scratch: Voted for Berdych in three, he serves too good for Monfils. :worship:

Gaël isn't defensive no more, i think you didn't watch Gaël for a while. He's agressive, even in backhand this year, he really improved. But he still has a knee pain and doesn't move as he wants. He has to be careful with Davis Cup next week.

If he serves well he could take the title but it will be difficult. I would say Gael in 3.

Haven't seen much of this tournament, but if Berdy is still cruising on any of his AO form, this should be two easy sets for the Czech.

Yes, it's true but look... Berdych didn't lose a point from his first serve :eek:

Monf is a clown in finals, so i say Berdych in 2 tight sets, altough i will be rooting for Gael.

Make or break match for Gael if he wins this match I see him taking home a Masters title and finishing in the Top 8 at the end of the year.
