Pretty hilarious match.

Monfils lost just 4 points on serve in the first set, still lost it 4:6 :lol:

Monfils can't convert 4 SP in the 2. set (including 1 on 5:3 when he served for it). Goes down 2:5 in the TB and winning 5 points in a row. You could say "typical Kohli" but Monf played those 5 points extremely well.

3. set was pretty unspectacular.

Terrible result for the sport.

More talented player and much better human being lost. :sad:

If you'd ask Kohli who's your nightmare opponent he would surely say Gael Monfils. It's now Monfils vs Kohli 11-2 H2H

We're being robbed of something special with Kohlschreiber. If the guy had one clutch bone in his body then he'd be near the top of the game.

Nice quality match, such a pity it was shown on only one camera from a really bad high angle :sad:

They both played well and in Kohli's defence, the entire crowd - and it sounded like quite a lot of people - started chanting constantly for Monfils at the end of the 2nd set. It was like a DC match and Gael was suddenly Croatian. It definitely lifted him to come back and take that 2nd set, and I think it got to Kohli a bit.

Very good point at 2-5 down, followed by a big serve helped him a lot. Then maybe the point at 5-4 was weak from Kohli, but the rest no tragic choke.
