A wily Frenchman playing on his country’s grandest stage, Gael Monfils shows up Jürgen Melzer in this amazing point en route to a third-round win. Monfils, whose name translated to English literally means, “my son,” defies the oldest rule of tennis where guys would take two steps toward a return ball and quit on it. But not Monfils…he just didn’t quit on it. He’s currently two sets up on just beat Andy Roddick, making a go at the finals. Keep working, my son. Keep working.

Oh, and let the record show that I had a dime on Tommy Haas, who nearly pulled the upset over Roger Federer before collapsing in the third set. Thanks for nothing, Thomas…
