Toronto R2: Djokovic fights past Monfils 6-2 6-7 7-6

Close one. Too close

Monfils was up 3-1 in the decider and had game point(s) to go up 4-1

I think Djokovic relaxed too much after that first set and underestimated Monfils. He could've lost this many times in that decider

But a win is a win and it's all that matters :yeah: Tsonga is next

Shame, just too passive when it mattered most from Monfils. Djokovic was ripe for the taking here, and Tsonga will have chances tomorrow

Re: Toronto R2: Djokovic beats Clownfils 6-2, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (2)

Well, it is "fun", I mean good points from both, but of course clowning here and there. I don't know what to say -- both didn't really utilize the opportunities they have, especially Monfils who broke in the 3rd Set. I think Djokovic had chances to break to serve it out but wasn't able to do it and did it erroneously many times. The TB came and the Monfils implosion just speaks for itself with just sloppy errors and Djokovic just wanting to win it and get over it.

Djokovic's rhythm got thrown pretty badly, perhaps by a combo of the wind and Monfils clowning.

Never really mattered though, because Monfils was terrified of winning. 3-1 in final set, chokes it straight back, then tight as a drum in the tiebreak.

Awesome match IMO. Other than some horrifyingly pushed backhands Monfils looked pretty good I thought. :shrug:

I am so upset... Actually a soul crushing loss... I don't even have anything else to say.

Re: Toronto R2: Djokovic def. Clownfils 6-2, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (2)

for amount of clowning produced in this match circus show looks like greek tragedy . Federer still stays only top player against whom Monfils won a close match, another out of reach Fed's record :yeah:
