well he did play better, but i can't really be encouraged by that. all the bad things from last season are still there. i feel like it's reasonable to expect him to beat a player like Paire, i didn't look at his UE but i'm sure he went over 40 (Paire). and when he needed his first serve disappeared completetly. on the bright side the volleying is pretty good, but pretty much futile when it's not incorporated with other elements. the Service return is horrendous, missing too many of them. all in all, a shaky player, shook up by himself mostly. and now another title to this ghastly Gasquet, pppf
Agreed pretty much about all. What strikes me is how badly he dealt with Paire's dropshots, poor anticipation and horrendous play when he got to them.
