If this isn't quickness, I dont know....
basically a complete lap around the court if you could do it
Although, I think the linesman actually ended up calling this out, perhaps shotspot will disagree a la Federer / Delpo USO 2009 :D

So a top 20 player with K-Swiss and Prince sponsorships is a clown on court, but seems to be able to beat the other top pros in the world. If he would have made that shot it would have gone in the annals of tennis highlights just like his other shots...You are just a hater...get over it.

No, YOU should grow a pair and get over it. Monfils is a clown on court. You are just his loyal nutthugger. If people are currently bashing Rod Laver in another thread, I dont see anything wrong with criticizing Monfils, who is utter garbage next to Laver.

Oh and no matter what you might want to believe, Monfils failed miserably at that shot. Rather than finding his way into the annals of tennis highlights, he just further strengthened his own image of clownhood.

Really you are going to create a post to bash Monfils...and call me a nutthugger...he makes more money, his ranked higher, and is an exciting player. But I see how a forum poster can feel intimidated by that and start calling people names. And by the way Federer did the same thing, Monfils just jumped and missed.

Are you kidding? Everyone knows he is a clown. Every commentator will mention it, especially after he tries his patented stupid shots. No one said he isn't a good player. But he makes really stupid decisions sometimes. He is a clown.

I'm not hating, its just a nickname. I like the guy. He's one of my favorite players, he has all the tools, he just needs to sort them, and them manage his brain a bit better and he is potentially unstoppable.

Ocean: that Sampras/Muster match is an amazing match start to finish, that point is amazing, and Muster's celebration is even better, Pete's transition game in that point is amazing, and Muster really comes up with some great stuff, especially on the dead run.

I had the match on my computer at one point and it just used to remind me how amazing matches can be with two top quality players with contrasting styles competing. I miss that kind of variety in tennis and yes, Sampras' used to really have the most amazing sneak into the net, gliding like a cat, making the tennis court look tiny.

Any Nadal match in 2005 in my recent memory. He's "pushing" his way to oblivion in almost every match I see. The 2005 FO final was one of the matches which looked so one-sided in terms of attack and defense but outcome suggested otherwise.

The 2010 FO final was good too. Nadal just put on a counter-punching clinic on clay that day.

McEnroe was ripping Monfils mercilessly during one of his past Wimby matches. He said Monfils plays like a 12 year old or something to that effect. Basically, he is either pushing junk balls or trying to blast crazy winners from 9 feet behind the baseline. He seems to have no rhyme or reason to his game and doesnt really set up his shots. Ive heard alot of commentators say he is simply uncoachable.

Lateral coverage defending near winners and winning the point (shot at 1:16 should totally be a winner)
www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLRU8S4SPbg#t=1m03s

This one might not even look or feel like a huge point coverage point but notice just how much from side to side he's silently covering to work this point out... talk about effortless lateral coverage there.

Nice post. 10 years ago, quite amazing.

I saw a 12 minute video of this match on youtube a while back. It was fun to see some Federer kodak moments, but his movement was not that amazing back then. TheJenday always nitpicks highlights, but Federer was quite frustrated in that match and Enqvist was completely outhitting him from the baseline and Fed's defense was simply not strong enough to hold him off.

4 years later, Federer was a monster...

Lsmkenpo better not appreciate any of the points in this thread.

Obviously, these guys are all pushers, because they're all running for the ball.

Real tennis players stand on one spot and hit the lines, the back fence and the net all day (if the ball comes to them). That way the match is on their racket.

Point beginning at 5:26 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wbj-AnfsZBY&feature=player_detailpage#t=326s) (how does Fed get to that Davydenko forehand around 5:40, and return it well? :shock:);

Ah... just watch the whole thing actually, it's entertaining :D
