    i voted yes but am by no means a bandwagon fan because i don't like mofils, infact i can't stand him. i just think playing his game with a lot of luck he can do it. i mean who would have predicted tsonga last year. i guess us that vote yes just want to hope that we can say we told you so!

    I can't stand this guy. I was watching his match today and in the last set Vasallo Arguello was serving and had to wait for Monfils to get ready because he seems exhausted... Anyway, no way he'll reach the final of the AO.

    Yeah no way will he reach the final. He looked really strange today, like he was either exhausted or injured.

    Australia's not his place, just b/c of the hot conditions, in my opinion. Maybe he could make a run at the US, if the fans got behind him. He'd have to have a few night matches, tho.

    I think his best chance is at the FO. He moves best on clay, and can give opponents a tough time. He made the SF last year using the home crowd support and cool weather.

    Well, the chance is there. He already took out Nadal once this year so I bet he could do it again. He could probably dig deep. Not to the final though.

    No, he won't. I don't think Monfils will eve be a GS material. He may get to the semis but I doubt he'll make a lot of finals if any.

    Monfils has about as much chance of getting to the AO final as Jo Willy has of beating Federer at Wimbledon! Which means ...0 chance!

    Monfils is never as tired as he looks, I think of it more of gamesmanship mixed with energy conservation. not saying i like it, but i don't think he gets that exhausted. Im thinking he will go out to nadal if anything, rafa looked pretty solid yesterday.
