Re: AO Rd2: Gasquet[9] douses Falla 6-3 6-2 6-2

Great to have Gasquet post an early scoreline like this.

The match never left his control. Against Falla, he was free to exercise highly aggressive play. When Falla went on the offensive, Richard reprised some of his improv from last week, took shots on the rise, and impressively turned defense to offense.

Due to the righty-lefty dynamic and Falla's strong backhand, Richard's forehand was tested quite a bit, but it came through in big ways. If he can keep that shot clicking like it was, I think he can mount a decent run here.
