Monfils claims Open Sud de France 2014 title

Monfils claims Open Sud de France 2014 title

Gael Monfils defeated Richard Gasquet 6-4, 6-4 to win the Open Sud de France 2014 title.

"This is unbelievable for me," said Monfils. "I had some back problems at the beginning of the week and I didn't know if I was going to be able to play, so to now be with the trophy is pretty crazy. I have been elevating my game match after match and I am extremely proud in the way I played today. I really enjoy playing here in Montpellier. I love the atmosphere there is in this arena."

He claimed €77,315 in prize money and 250 Ranking points.

"It was great to be in final here once again," said Gasquet. "I am extremely disappointed to have lost in the final, but that’s tennis. I need to congratulate Gael because he’s played unbelievable all week. I wasn’t able to read his serve, he was serving bullets all match. My only way out was to try to push him to a tie-break and wait for him to start making mistakes. But it didn’t happen."

Tomas Berdych wins Open Sud de France 2012 title

Tomas Berdych beat Gael Monfils 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 to win the Open Sud de France 2012 title.

Berdych broke for a 5-3 lead in the final set on a double fault from Monfils, clinching victory with his 12th ace.

“It was very close in the end. I’m happy that I was able to do it,” Berdych said. “Actually, it’s even more special to beat the home player, unfortunately for the crowd.”

Berdych relied on a strong serve and deep groundstrokes to go a set up but made several unforced errors to drop the second set.

Berdych to face Monfils at Montpellier final

Berdych to face Monfils at Montpellier final

Tomas Berdych beat Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-3, 6-4 in one hour and 23 minutes to advance to the Open Sud de France final in Montpellier .

Berdych won 34 of 34 points on his first serve, and saved all five break points he faced .

"I felt a good rhythm on my serve from the beginning, and that was probably the key. Then, I was able to make those important breaks [of serve] and finish it in two sets," said Berdych. "My serve is one of the key aspects of my game. If my serve is working well, I start to feel more confident on court. I can be more aggressive on the return and put pressure on the opponent."

In the final he will meet Gael Monfils.

"I think it's going to be a nice final," Berdych said. "I feel there is work to be done and there is one more step to go. I'll try my best to finish the week off great."

Gasquet beats Davydenko to reach Open Sud quarters

Gasquet beats Davydenko to reach Open Sud quarters

Richard Gasquet scored a 6-3, 6-4 win over Nikolay Davydenko to reach the Open Sud de France quarterfinals.

Gasquet was able to break his opponent three times.

“He’s not the No. 3 he was a few years ago, but he can still dazzle sometimes, and you can easily find yourself a break down against him,” Gasquet said. “So it was important to hold my serve.”

Davydenko led 40-15 on serve in the 10th game of the second set, but Gasquet took a forehand early to pass Davydenko, who next hit an unforced error and watched as Gasquet dispatched a volley to get to his first match point.
