Wimbledon R1: Gasquet trounces Fish 6-3, 6-4, 6-2

Didn't see much of the match but it seems Gasquet was playing very well. That stats do look good. Don't think he's going to come close to defending all of his points from last year though.

Playing well at Wimbledon again, I see - and again after all the talk of him faltering.

Super! Well done, Richard! Wish I could have watched the match. Did anyone manage to catch it?

Richie's forhend is suddenly looking very good.

Yes he was hitting some awesome shots today.

Fish looked bemused by the end.

That's what I noticed too.. he was going for it and it looked even better than last year.

Backhand wasn't too shabby either

Yes I think the talk about Gasquet faltering was premature considering that last year he lost to Qureshi in Nottingham before doing well at Wimbledon, and he did show signs of good form in Queen's (or at least not a lack of confidence).

Good match from Gasquet, there were a lot of winners coming off of his racquet today. Fish didn't play badly at all but was just outplayed.

Gorgeous stuff from Richie - pure pleasure to watch. Every now and then he reminds us how fabulous he could be.

People shouldn't expect much of Gasquet. If he manages to pass the third round, then build some hype on him.
