Djokovic, Djokovic won 7-6 (2), 6-1, 6-2, but equally we could say that Monfils lost twice: one for Djokovic, and once himself. Addressed early in the match, before he decided it was not enough to win a victory. Had to look good doing it.
Exhibit A: The attempt to Monfils in a shot between his legs. It differed from Roger Federer reached last week that it was not necessary and did not work. Monfils facing the network, and the ball, at that time. When the ball was coming, he jumped in the air, caught his racket by-and-then-under his leg and knocked the ball between his legs … on the network. In a statement, reportedly brought warm applause for a good try. In a real match with a semifinal on the line should be drawn boos. Monfils, who said he had never played in windier conditions, claimed the shooting was more necessary than might have looked.
“I was very fast and I was leaning the other way,” he said. “The ball came and left me and tried to do it.”
In the third set, attempted a leaping forehand back to the network, turning on the air. At that time, the game was almost over.
Monfils will not yield a happy man Roger Rasheed. Monfils coaching Rasheed has two and a half years. Before the game, “said Monfils had not achieved half of what it could if it adopted a better tactic.
“It’s a work in progress,” said Rasheed. “We hope to see the complete package at some point.”
Unlike Monfils, Djokovic has not tried anything fancy this tournament. He had a slow start in the first round. But since then, has remained constant with the simple, robust, economic courts day after day. Minimizing the effects of wind on his shots volleyed more than usual (he won 40 of 59 criteria). Of course, he did much to too many errors (50) and aces very few (one) – certainly ugly numbers. But sometimes ugly is not the worst thing to be.
