That period from 5-0* to *5-3 BP (X5) was reminiscent of the Verdasco match. Otherwise, a pretty solid performance despite poor serving.

One match away from getting his first pigeon.

Richard needed a quick win after the marathon yesterday, but given the matchup, this result is not such a great indication of his current form.

Good to see Gasquet hold his nerve and pull out the first set @ 5-3. After that, it was smooth sailing. Nice win for him, hope it continues.

Yeah. He's been serving badly and he called the trainer today about his shoulder so some worrying signs there.

Good win, with the exception of a few loose games in the first set. I hope his shoulder is okay, he actually has a decent chance at going far in MC.

Much better than yesterday (except for the end of the first set)!!!!

But Hrbaty's game seems to suit him...

Even if that is true, it was a proof what a close win can do for your confidence within 24 hours. I found the FH quite consistent and ooccasionally well penetrating, I liked the variety, but the serve has to improve!

Re: Gasquet def Hrbaty 6-3, 6-2

Yep, Hrbaty tried to make him play on his FH hoping that it would be a weak point and was disappointed (but on another day it could have worked) since Richard was finding nice angles with his BH... I remember a rally in the second set particularly.

Ljubo must win a match first

Richie played good match, I'm really happy to see him winning and he has decent chance to make it far in MC it is it somehow special tournament for him
