Just in case you missed it

Rafael Nadal has done his part to complete the dream final on everyone's mind going into the tournament by pretty much waylaying the biggest obstacle to making that happen, Novak Djokovic.

Now, Roger Federer must do his part to ensure it happens by taking out Gael Monfils. He's up a set right now and it's pretty tight in the second. He's never lost to Monfils before, BUT crazier things have happened. Taking on an inspired and animated Frenchman at his home Slam, who's finally living up to his potential? That can make for a tough situation for anyone. We'll see how it goes!

Hey, Hey, Hey, I see Gael in that tournament, lol!

Hey Sheila! It looks like Gael is giving him a run for his money. I was thinking about this, and I hope it doesn't sound too crazy: While his results aren't there yet at all, Monfils definitely has top-10 ability and could be a regular up around that area for years to come.

Not crazy in the least Van. I personally thought that he would have been there by now. A couple of years ago he was just full steam ahead, and between injuries and I don't know what else, all of that just stopped.

I'm glad to see him get his game back together. He is so very talented.
