    Great article Jose. After reading this I am going to find the match online if I can.

    I love these two players and found it difficult to cheer for either as I read this. I am always disappointed by Monfils, but happy to watch his matches. It just feels like he has not maximized on his potential, and I am actually surprised that Blake is still playing and doing so well. They seem like perfect players to study motivation and sports psychology. Do you get the feeling that their self-perception and purpose on the court are very different? I know Blake is expected to join the commentator ranks, but no clue on Monfils. Blake may have what it takes to be a coach…

    By the way, I love you live analysis pieces.
