Besides the Simon comeback and win against Hewitt, there wasn't a great men's match played today. Most were 3-setters, but tomorrow offers perhaps more. Daniel Brands is a powerful German who might give Nadal some trouble. Of course, the sexiest match of the day, particularly for the French, is Monfils against Berdych.

Berdych is playing his best tennis ever on the clay, reaching the semis in both Madrid and Rome. He did reach the semis of the French in 2010 taking down Murray, but I like Monfils in this match to confound the big Czech and take him out of his rhythm and win this match.
