The defeat of Gael Monfils at Roland Garros collective responsibility of not just the end of an individual adventure (2-6, 6-7, 6-2, 7-6, 6-2). You only had to look back after the fact "ooooh!" disappointment pushed as one of the spectators of the Suzanne Lenglen court when the French missed his first match point at 5-3 in the fourth set to understand it.

"With Gael, you can feel it happening something special, analyzes the announcer Marc Maury tournament. People love waiting for the spectacular blow and crazy almost all the time. I know I many feel the crowd on the edge of the court, it is something to which I am sensitive and him, I assure you that it feels rev up, it feeds on that. " But this time, physical walk was a little too high. After his victory in Bordeaux, and his way to the final in Nice, victories in pain face Tomas Berdych in the first round and the second Ernsts Gulbis weighed twice. "Gael said: 'fatigue, I do not think!" Says Marc Maury, but we knew that the question was to know until when ... "

Until the fourth set 5-3 in favor of Monf ', actually. There the French had harvested two match points. Before you do the same with the other two obtained on serve this time at 5-4. Consequently, the signs of irritation of the Parisian accumulated at the same time that the power forehand his opponent suddenly revealed more effective. Back to 5-5 after four saved match points, the Spanish veteran, 31, took out all the stops to turn off the tiebreak (7-3).

Behind after the Monf has been appealed to the physio for a pain in his right leg, the fourth round of the track opened to him. And has been validated squarely in favor of an ultimate direct fault of Gael Monfils. The adventure was beautiful, but she keeps a small sense of unfinished business. "I'm disappointed that it ends like this, having had match points, summarized the person. But I'll be back next year even stronger."
