Gicquel 1/2 bp, Gasquet 0/7

Richard had 6/5* 40-15* a couple of second serves, he was up *5-3 in the breaker;

once a mental midget, alwas mental midget....

Why was he upset at the end? I only watched the last games. I first thought he was pissed because of his poor performance, but he seemed actually mad at Gicquel, they started argueing after the matchpoint.

So much for Gasquet being back on track!

To lose to Gicquel on his best surface is just

0/7 on Bpts

He is really becoming the laughing stoke of atp tour.

Can't wait for the Wimbledon points to fall off, time for Gasclown to make room in the top 10 for those who really belong there.

LIKE: Stepanek, Youzhny, Stakhovsky, Raonic, Pouille || HATE: Nadal, Almagro, Monfils, Troicki, Simon, Tipsarevic

I can't wait until Wimbledon starts, then we'll see the real Gasquet. Obviously a large disappointment here, he should have won this match and his mentality wasn't very good, but he fought hard after losing the first set.
Not much positive to take out of this - just next time he has 2 fucking set points, TAKE THEM.

Richie obviously wanted to celebrate his birthday tomorrow and decided s'Hertogenbosch is not the place to do it.

Why wouldn't he be upset, he was ahead all the time, had zillion of oportunities and still lost in straights.

Come on man, that is a little bit harsh.

Gicquel is one of those players I feel is often "under-rented" ()...has a big serve, isn't all that easy to hit through, and is certainly quite dangerous on a faster court.

Couldn't comment on this match, but Gasquet looked a lot better last week, so at least he has been on the up in recent weeks. This might just be a bit of a setback, that's all.

I saw his matches last week and seriously he didn't look that good.
His forehand in particular was terrible

On the up??
He won only 2 matches and lost to a pathetic Nalbandian on his best surface.....so much for him being on the up.
I guess we don't have the same standards when it comes to Gasquet
