    Three options: Fed / Nadal / Djokovic. Apologies to Monfis, who has a sick game but that defensive style won't work vs. FedEx. I will bet a free tennis lesson that Nadal beats Djokovic in straights and Fed in 4. His play is unreal atm.

    Monfils is 40-1 to win the Tornament with William Hill in the Uk sounds like a decent way to toss around £20.00 !

    Yeah, it's 40-1 for a reason, can you imagine Mofeez actually beating Federer and Nadal back to back to win a slam!? It should be 100-1.

    I think Fed wants Nadal so bad that Monfils is going to be his punching-ball... It won't be pretty in the semis.

    Well you never know, I never thought he was going to make it against Ferrer but he drove the guy mad by bringing back everything. If you can win against Ferrer on what is supposed to be his surface and his way of playing... who knows??? Actually I don't think Monfils is going to beat Federer but you can't know for sure... BTW he will have all the French supporting him, that could be an important issue

    Roger Federer, there is always a little hope. And as long as there is some, I will go with the Swiss.

    Did the Fed get a walk-over? Or did he already beat Monfils and I was not aware of it?

    as much as I'd like to see Roger winning the French this year and having won all 4 GS's, I just don't see anyone beating Nadal this year at RG again...!
