Yeah he gets screwed pretty often with these draws, but at least he doesn't draw Fedal all the time like it seems Tomic does.

Rod I think Monfils could give Clay Goat a run for his money! A feeling I have!

he beat every player in ATP. it all depends what mood and minset hes in
He's 0-8 lifetime against Djokovic. He won 4 sets against Djokovic in those matches (Djokovic won 17 sets).

Don't think that's a mood or mindset issue.

I thought Monfils had turned a corner watching him in Doha till he came up against the machine, Rafa.

The fire in Monfils eyes (that had been newly burning in Doha), flickered. I saw the old guy turn up and I knew that nothing had yet changed.

For instance, in the 2nd set, he hit one of those stoopid, casual shots that I thought he'd abandoned. Just one point only, but they all matter. He ended up getting broken in that service game and what could have been a 6-3 set win turned into a (harder) 7-6 set win. Who knows what would have happened in the 3rd had he kept the intensity going longer in the 2nd set?

He's not ready.

My 2p...

Monfils in 3 yet if he doesn't show up Harry could even win, like Murray Monfils could lose to anyone.

Man, Harrison can never catch any luck in these draws. It's hard to really break through when you have this to play with.

Monfils is a lazy asss, where else can Hairy Harry prove his will to succeed? If the trained hard he can win...

Idc if you think Monfils is lazy, the guy was a consistent top 10 player and has loads of talent, one of the most in the ATP. He's a tough opponent for anybody, especially for a 21 year old struggling for confidence and wins.

He trains plenty hard, he's a hard worker. He's tried to succeed and is doing his best, it's not so easy to do. It's mostly due to his game, he has a great serve but everything else is just average. Forehand needs work, movement and ROS could be better ect.

Harrison's chances of getting a decent draw are never going to be very good with a ranking around 100.

Harrison may get screwed with draws in other tournaments, but he clearly did not here. Considering that he is unseeded and could have been drawn to face anyone in the draw, he should feel fortunate he got a winnable first round match and did not draw Nadal or Djokovic.

every year i dont understand, how hes not #1. this year is no different... He has a ver good shot in my opinion
I would put $10,000 down on this not happening to win $1,000. I am not a gambling man, but that would just be ridiculously easy money.

The part in bold made me laugh, probably the most of any sentence on these forums.

I was not joking. Monfils beat Harrison and Sock, but the matches were not blowouts. Nadal's win over Monfils is an example of what an actual blowout looks like.

Harrison can lose to anyone. His movement is poor and he has no firepower off the ground. Someone is really screwing up youth tennis in the US because from DY to Harrison to Jack Sock, the young players have been emerging with massive holes in their games
