In a match in no way resembling their last match in Paris from the fall, Fed routined Monfils 6-4, 6-3, 7-6(3). Not that surprising, frankly.
Roger will now face Nole in the semis, and even though Nole has dominated their most recent matches, I think his GOAT-iness will take this one. Fed knows he stands in the way of Djokovic’s streak, the number 1 spot, and a first trip to the finals, and he always raises his game when there’s history on the line. He is reliably annoying like that.
And since all my favorites are crashing out in drama filled 5-setters, I do not expect this match to be any different. What can I say, clay season has totally made me emo. #JankoSigh
