What do you think?

At his highest level he seems every bit as good as Baghdatis/Gonzalez/Berdych.

Do you think he could make a slam final if he kept up his high level of play?

Also, before calls of Mugfis come out, remember this;

He has made a slam semi

He has beaten Federer and Nadal with some consistency in his career. Well, hes beaten them both.

Guys like Berdych who made a slam final have been roasted by Nadal in recent years. Birdy had a win or two against Roger but its been domination there too.

Monfills can beat the biggest players. I couldnt see him winning a final but I could see him making one. Hed be a one final wonder though.

"if he kept up his high level of play" - then yes, obviously. This goes for a lot of players.

The problem with Monfils is that he doesn't keep it up...can't see him going past QF at this point really, but we'll see how he does this year. He made some strides towards the end of last year, I thought.

He'll definitely win one... probably Roland Garros.

Monfils probably became more aggressive but just against counter punchers, moonballers, etc... against aggressive players he is still a way to passive and plays like before against this sort of players . really doubt the he will get 6 nadals on the road to the final

No.
At least I hope so. He is a fantastic player when on, but with Monfils its such a toss up. You never know which Monfils will turn up. He could end up clowning up a major final :eek:

Hell, he might not even make another QF run ever at a slam.

Not till he grabs a masters. Let's just ignore the DelPo phenomenon for now.

I don't think so. Whenever he gets put on center court the temptation to do cartwheels and handstand shots is too much for him, and serious players take advantage.

I said yes because he may just string 6 good matches in a row or get lucky. If Nadal won USO10, nothing is impossible. Then again, not everyone can get draws rigged for them.
what he made the 2011 US Open final too.... you are a bitter clown, Looner

Would be a shame if he didn't. So much talent.
