Post by noleisthebest on Mon Apr 15, 2013 10:32 pm

There can rarely be a more beautiful sight when watching tennis: every time the camera pans out to the breath-takingly blue Mediterrenean glistening in the sun, it's just one endless sigh from this side of computer.

The blissful scene is contrasted with the saturated deep orange of clay and gracefully labouring movement of tennis players.
It is probably the only place where tennis ball, with its unnatural neon colour looks out of place, a bit plain, not pretty enough.
Ah, well.....

Sadly, with its loss of compulsory tournament status, Monte Carlo has not seen all top ten players for a few years now.

Still, the field is as strong, if not as beautiful, it can be: Djokovic, Murray, Nadal, Berdych, Del Potro, Tsonga, Gasquet, Raonic, Dimitrov, Dolgopolov and many other excellent players we missed seeing in the past few weeks....

The draw:
http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2013/410/mds.pdf

Order of play:
http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2013/410/op.pdf

A few players already out: Tomic, Simon, Benneteau, Bellucci, Chardy, Seppi...

Djokovic, with the recovering ankle injury, still a big question mark for Wednesday. Official announcement to follow tomorrow.

I was going to add those two, as well, but just couldn't bring myself to "promote" Isner...Wached him beat Berankis in Houston, what horrible, ugly tennis, he virtually and literally LOBBED him with his wide serves, it was sickening to watch.
Berankis took a set off him, but lost concentration briefly in the 3rd and was gone. He still played brilliant tennis and I look forward to seeing him again very much, hopefully in Madrid. Really exciting player.

I didn't get to see his match against Haas, he must've played great to beat him in 2 easy sets.

As for Goffin & Almagro....Almagro just gets on my nerves with being such colossal choker. So he's in my bad books, too.

I hope Dimi does not choke in the TB. Standing a bit too far behind the base line for my liking, but seems to be working for him, so who am I to complain....He should win this in straights.

Good fight and defending from Dimi in the TB. Tipsarevic pretty pathetic, average movement, definitely not adjusted to clay yet. Can't even remember if he actually can play on the surface....

A good tournament for him is making it to the last 16, he has only done something at the US.
People like him, monaco, isner, should not be top 10ers!

I saw Simon-Agut matches 13 breaks of serve in 2 sets?? Yikes

Simon's after match interview:

"I was tired (in the first set)," admitted Simon. "Long rallies were killing me."

ha ha.. funy this is. If the long rallies kill him, why doesn't he do something about it by keeping it short. I never see an iota of attempt from him to finish points early. Ahh.. what else can a pusher do other that push...

Cilic-HB match was very interesting, good play from both. Tough loss for HB but he played a good match.

I think top 10 will look a bit different at the end of this year. Tbh, I'm sick and tired of seeing Ferrer so high up. Shame on Tsonga and Berd to let him be ahead of them.

I don't remember Simon on clay from before but what I saw from him in DC against Argentina, his game does not translate well on clay and he's wasting his time on it.

Absolutely. But at the moment he is even above Nadal and perhaps could be even seeded higher than him. He did well for his limited ability. But his absolute inability to even put up a good match against the top-4 makes it so frustrating. He has occupied the place far too long.

Now that you've mentioned it, I remember it vaguely....something definitely not right wit him recently, just happened to coincide with clay season probably.

he,he thanks, rotla Cheers I haven't seen that match but it immediately reminded me another one of the two (was it in AO this year?) loved it!!!! So, there must be a history between Monfils and Simon the way they play each other like that: picnic style....paid by the hour, as Paul said!

Monte Carlo glowing in the sunshine, Gasquet and Paire on the court: one of the most exciting SBHs vs definitely the most elegant DBH in the game....and both playing with flair, esp Paire.....who happens to have been voted the most handsome player on tour with which I shall not disagree Love Blush

Nalby should focus on doubles, I have sore eyes to see him running. But still I like his personality and tennis skill.

Just tuned into Dolgopolov Del Potro now, Dolgo completely destroying Delpo, 6:1 in the first set, when Dolgo is on fire, it's a fest for all tennis lovers Magic

Dolgo has so much class and finesse in his game, he makes Delpo look so basic and raw (which he is, anyway) with all that loud bashing....Wouldn't it be brilliant to have Dolgo in top 10?

I can't believe Dolgo is taking Delpo's 2nd serve almost 1m inside the baseline, doesn't say a tot about Delpo's serving...what a waste of height! and of course, Dolgo breaks!

Classic Dolgo loses focus and eventually the 2nd set. Can't complain, it's an interesting match (so long as Dolgo wins Grr )

Delpo's serve is quite ordinary for someone his size. Heck, its not too much better than what little Ferrer or Tipsarvic can serve.

Nalbandian's DHBH is the most elegent double handed shot in tennis. He sure didn't make the most of his skills, but even for the now-n-then when he hist those they are a thing of beauty.

Paire.. nitb sure didn't watch his match against Dodig.

Dolgo's main problem is he plays his tennis like driving Ferrari exclusively in the 5th gear....and of course he can't keep it up the whole match!!!!!
Somebody needs to tell him it's ok to use the brakes and drop a bit of speed but not take foot off the gas completely.

Order of play out for tomorrow:

Berdych-Granollers Raonic-Nieminen
Matosevic-Nadal Cilic-Anderson
Djokovic-Youzhny Melzer-Goffin/Almagro
Vasselin-Murray Wawrinka-Montanes etc......


Funny, but with all the "big names" playing tomorrow, not nearly as much to look forward to like today....

Niemenen Raonic looking interesting, third set tie-break and Rao on his way out...C'mon Milos!
And Milos recovers the double break and back into it now, on serve 2:3....and then manages a DOUBLE FAULT!!!! Yikes .....and if that's not enough, sends an overhead ....OUT 2:5...2:6, 4 MPs for Jarrko....and it's over!

Shame for Raonic....Nieminen looked very solid in the few points I managed to see.

Berd dispatches Granollers in straights.
Nadal Matosevic next.

Matosevic is a Croatian Aussie like Tomic and from memory has strong built so should be able to keep up with Nadal. Matosevic beat Verdasco in the first round. Let's hope he can do some damage against one more, this time the eternally injured Spaniard.

I think Serena would've given Nadal a better challenge than Matosevic today....
Nadal wins the first set 6:1, losing only 9 points in the whole set, and he isn't playing anything special...more like Matosevic is totally tragic!
The only upside is Nole-Youzhny will start sooner....
