Nice SF: Gasquet d. Starace 7-6(1), 7-6(6)

Not his best match this week but still good enough to beat a good clay courter like Potito. Saved 2 set points in the second set. Great stuff!!

Starace really should have had a set minimum, if not won this. Just couldn't keep his level when it mattered.

Gasquet needs to write Starace a thank you note for tightening up, especially on SP in the 1st set and the second of 2 SPs in the 2nd set.

Potito You need a tiebreak lesson.
See you at RG.

Shame for those set points, but it doesn't matter now...He'll be fresher at RG than Richie and weirdo Verdasco, that's for sure.

Could not agree more - something feels very right about Gasquet these past few weeks.

Going out on a limb here: Soon, after either Richie goes deep at either Roland Garros or Wimbledon, I am going to quote this post to give you due credit.

RIP Marat

If that's true then Gasquet would be the one receiving a lot more "thank you notes" from others since it's usually him to gives his matches away. Nice to know that these things like choking and luck go both ways!
