Here’s the headline:

Nadal in shock defeat to Monfils

World number one Rafael Nadal crashed out of the Qatar Open after a straight sets defeat to France’s Gael Monfils.

The fifth seed had never won a set in three previous meetings with Nadal, but dominated from the start to cruise home 6-4 6-4 and make the semi-finals.

And the article goes on to predict a hot meeting between a reviving Federer and a healthy defending champ, Andy Murray. But knocking Rafy out should give Monfils some credibility in the struggle he has to find a consistent winning game of tennis. But ’09 should offer lots of very competitive and great tennis!
