Huge chance.

Nadal barely got through today and might be injured/ill.

*of course, Monfils still has to win tonight.

Last time Monfils beat Nadal was 2012. 10 years ago...


Absolutely no chance at all of Monfils winning. Even injured/ill, Nadal would destroy him. It will be straight sets victory either way.

That record clearly shows he has a chance. 1 in 7 chance, you never know.

If you really think Monfils has a chance of beating Nadal at a Grand Slam, you know nothing about the sport. Absolutely no chance.

Straight sets victory for Nadal.

Has Monfils beaten Nadal before? Yes. So he's absolutely a chance. Not a good one but its still a chance.

How about at Grand Slams? 0-3

Lost to Nadal twice at the AO and once at the US Open. All 3 of those occasions were on Hard Court... As I said, no chance.

You do realise this is not the same Nadal we saw even 2 years ago?

Of course Monfils can win. He’d have to play well but he can win.

Nadal was lucky to win today. He’s far from unbeatable these days.

Jesus Christ, that’s cherrypicking to suit your argument. 6 of the 14 wins for Nadal have been on clay. It’s 2-5 on hard courts.

Absolutely Monfils is a chance with the form they are both in. Only a complete moron suggests otherwise.

Could be a moot point in an hour though.

Looks like the same Nadal as 2 years ago to me.

I don't think Nadal was lucky today. He was a superior athlete and knows how to get the big wins. Many people in here thought he would lose in the 5th but I knew he would win it. I just cannot see someone like Monfils beating him at this tournament.
