Re: Ferrero def Gasquet 5:7 7:5 6:2

Why did he choose to play doubles after yesterday's marathon/......
Sigh, it was a good match nonetheless. Richard was brilliant in the first set. And up till 4-2 in the second. Then it all went downhill and Ferrero could touch the sky.

GREAT JOB JUANQUI!!!
He showed again why he's (still) such a great player to watch. Some awesome shots - that shot from behind his back in the second set... WOW.

Wow, this tournament's becoming like heaven for me. Three out of four of my favs already in the semi's - and I expect the fourth to join them in an hour's time.

I feel bad for Richard. He looked so tired out there. Rest up hon and get in better shape.

I'm so happy for Juanqui though. I just want him to have a good claycourt season.

There is nothing to be ashamed of for Gasquet this week apart from reconsidering playing doubles. I am proud of him and I hope he takes the good things with him.

Re: Ferrero def Gasquet 5:7 7:5 6:2

Gasquet was the better player for a set and a half then his legs informed him they'd had enough, thanks. He went high risk to finish it in two, he failed to do so and that was that, Ferrero had the stronger legs and took it in three.

Gasquet - good tournament but ultimately paid the physical price for not closing either Verdasco or Ljubicic out in 2 sets, when he had chances to do so in both matches. And playing doubles may have added to the troubles, with his match last night won 15-13 in the MTB not too long after he'd disposed of Ljubicic in just short of 3 hours.

I think people will take a pop at Gasquet's fitness and that's unfair - he has a lot of tennis in those legs this week.

But the more legitimate criticism is that he didn't close earlier matches out quicker and thus did what Safin and Nalbandian do a lot of - wore himself out in earlier rounds, only to find the tank is on E when he really needs it.

Hopefully it's something he can work on for the future.

Ferrero was outclassed for a lot of the match but he succeeded in hanging around JUST long enough for Gasquet to feel tired and then it was all about him and his ability to grind it out and outlast the Frenchman.

Federer vs Ferrero are usually good shows - I hope tomorrow is no different.

Nice match. Gasquet showed what he's capable of and QF is not a bad result. Maybe if he had skipped that doubles match... I would have liked a Federer-Gasquet SF.

Give me a break. If you want to criticise him, at least dish out vaild criticisms. It was his inability to close out Verdasco and Ljubicic in two as well as his decision to play doubles yesterday that did him in, not his fitness per say. I don't know how many players would still feel fresh after so many hours on court.
