Seems to me the most intriguing round of 16 match, and still no thread.

Who will draw the longer straw in this contest for facing Lord feder in the quarterfinals of this murderer's row that is the upper half of the draw? Based on surface and current ranking this should be a straightforward victory for Kandyman on paper, right? Not so fast – Gaël has an often uncanny ability of giving a lesson to serve bots, and their H2H stands thus:



With that in mind, this seems like a real pick 'em match. Only one thing is certain: the Guru will give a comprehensive lecture, one way or another.

Monfils has been sucky this year, until the grass. Assuming he keeps it up, he's clearly the better player.

If I made the poll public, any potential Kandyman sympathizers would not dare come out of the woodworks. Such incriminating information is best kept anonymous.

Voting over whether mury be goat seems like voting over whether the Earth be flat an oblate spheroid: perfectly redundant.

Anderson takes the breaker. One mini-break was enough.

13 W to 13 UEs from Anderson
6 W to 8 UEs from Monfils.

First set Anderson

The VB’s pipe dream of Monfils beating Federer in the QF is even further away than it was before lol

Just checked. H2h is 5-0 to Monfils, losing only 1 set in those matches total.
But this is grass....

If you told me Monfils would break Anderson in the 1st set and again in the 2nd set, and KA would have 6 aces through 10 service games, I'd assume Monfils was running away with the match.

When it comes to Monfils, assume nothing.

What's with the Wedding ring on the Shoelace for Anderson ?? won't that ring get dirty ? what if it falls off and he loses it ? I guess you can just buy another one ?? it doesn't look that expensive..

One set away from a Federer quarter.

Why does Monfils make these amateur mistakes ? at 30-30, makes 2 easy unforced error to give the break back....

Monfils broken back again in set 3, just like in set 2.

Anderson serve : 15-30 now though.

Monfils takes the 3rd set. that's the 4th time he's broken Anderson now, but is still down 2 sets to 1.

My hope is that Anderson can wear down eventually like he did versus Diego at the French. But that was clay.

hehe, Monfils shouts 'Komm jetzt!" as he holds after saving two break points.
