RG Day Five: Instant Karma
Posted by gauloises1 on May 28, 2010
The interrupted match between Gael Monfils and Fabio Fognini was finally resumed late yesterday afternoon at 5-5. Six games later, this happened.
I don’t, for the record, quite go along with a lot of the anger I’ve heard towards Monfils in the last few days – he isn’t, after all, responsible for the reprehensible behaviour of the Roland Garros crowd, or the decisions of the tournament referee.
He is, however, a bit of a plonker at times. If only because this match should have been won in straight sets, and it should have been won on Wednesday.
Anyway, well done to Fabs Fognini, or ‘Ming the Merciless’ as I like to think of him, for holding his nerve in an exceptionally hostile environment. Stanislas Wawrinka next for the fighting Italian.
