Richard showing Nadal who's the boss by losing as few games as he did

I didnt watch the match. Did gasquet play that well or was the #97 a too easy opponent?

He played pretty well from what I could tell but I only caught the second set.

Both.
Richard played very well for someone who could barely walk yesterday and Vliegen was at his muggest.

Re: The real (french) #1 sends Vliegen back to smurf land 6-1 6-2

Gasquet was simply on fire and just didn't ever let Vliegen into the match. Actually, I was slightly irritated that he didn't break the Belgian during his last service game, when he had the chances, so I could get my dream 'double-baguette' thread title - that observation is telling of how much drama there was in the match by that stage

Impressive this Gasquet in Monte Carlo - defeated Federer, Ljubicic, almost defeated Nadal and should've played last year in the semis
Backhand was great again

You play only as good, as your opponent lets you to

I was pissed too because I wanted to write that Richard had lost fewer matches than Rafa

Good match from Gasquet, Vliegen was just awful at times though
