    That would be nice. I'd love to see him win something.

    Yawn, why does anybody care about Monfils? Why post a prediction thread about a declining player who is ranked lower 100?

    When I see Monfils playing, I see myself on the court: hard shots with no consistence. With confidence he can win, but without it, he is lost.

    Monfils' comeback is the opposite of Rafa's: an amazing disaster...

    Oh man, another injury? Wish Monfils could stay healthy so he could live up to his potential.

    he looked good towards the end of set 1. I left before the breaker pretty much convinced he would win. was it a sudden injury or a kind of "get me out of here" injury??

    Rosol buried Seppi. Interesting. Will probably beat Troicki as well.

    definitely the second, come on he was not injured, he just looked so tired after 1 set, he knew he had no chance to come back with a break down in the second

    Florian Mayer is so talented, really enjoy watching his matchs (the few times i did)

    Lost the first set but break up in the second

    too bad this player is so inconsistent

    The Camp Humbalito, for enough cash, would probably consider a "champions' exhibition" if Ralph and Lukas win this week, no?

    I don't see why the Lopez-Rosol final on't be as interesting. Nice to see a final between 2 unseeded players

    The nicest final would have been Tipsarevic - Monfils.

    This year, we had much more good players than last years.

    Two matches I regret that didn't took place: Monfils - Fognini and Monfils - Simon, both because Fognini and Monfils got "injured".

    Two days ago I was watching Tipsarevic - Giraldo, and next to me came Giraldo's coach and his trainer. After they started to talk in spanish, I realised it was Francisco Clavet, who won here in 1998.

    This reminded me, what good players used to play at this tournament (Muster, Ivanisevic, Becker, Moya, Coretja, Ferrero, Gaudio, Djokovic...)

    The owner of this tournament is Gilles Simon who won 3 times and lost in the SF this year. I wish he hadn't lost today.

    Simon's form has taken a dive recently.

    I was thinking about selling my ticket for tomorrows final after the 2nd Semifinal when Lopez qualified.

    Each way, 31 degrees, Simon was melted from the start of the game.

    I never said that the Rosol Lopez final wouldn't be entertaining, but Mayer is one of my favorite players and I would have found a final featuring him more intersting

    What form? His form is 85% pushing the ball on the other side right to the guy and hope the opponent commits errors. He got away with it for a while, and people figured it out.
