Monfils beats Raonic pretty easily  :scared:


The most interesting thing was Monfils' new hairstyle.

Raonic still hasn't shown me much. I know high hopes are on him...but I don't see it yet. He has the same problem that Ivo had...he can basically hold serve...but he can't break serve!

The weak backhand hurt Jerzy very badly. He has to figure out his backhand or he will have diffculty time.

That and his decision making.

You're right :o about Raonic. He's really going nowhere fast. He just dumped his claycourt coach. Maybe a new coach will help get him over the hump.

Monfils is out of Wimbledon, kinda obvious that he'll pull out of Halle too :confused1:

He stated due to personal issue....

For me it's the serve and willingness to attack.
I'm probably just dreaming that he'll eventually develop into a solid top 10 player. ..-)

Serve - check.
But willingness to attack.. Really?
Its mostly because of his 1st serve, if the point last more than 3-4 shots he goes all passive just like Isner.
Imo, his attack depends heavily on his 1st serve..

Yes, I like both...but if they both get that far....I'm a little 'leary' of Haas... just saying...

Well firstly I hope Tommy will get that far considering his tough draw... Gulbis is always tricky.

None of the young games are able to back up their momentum/success. Raonic loses here, Dimitrov lost meekly to Hewitt in Queens and went down in comfortable straight sets to Djokovic in RG..

If you remember Novak, in 2006 January he was barely top 100 and he lost to Roger in straights at the AO, by 2007 he had beaten Roger and Nadal to win Toronto masters and made the USOpen final, and by 2008 he beat Roger and won the AO. In a span of two years he went from the little kid trying to prove himself that he could compete with the big guns, to beating Roger and winning a grand slam, not to mention become a solid #3.

It's like all the young guns are stuck at that 2006 Novak level.
