Paris R1: Gasquet def. Mahut 7-5 4-6 7-6(7)

Mahut too erratic at the net
some nice points in the last set and exciting TB, Gasquet took it in his 5th MP. Mahut didnt have any

Mahut was more accurate on difficult low volleys than in easy high ones

pfff that was scary, Mahut looked so easy on his serve in 3rd set. Gasquet played a great TB, the rest of the match was... well he said it. He was really happy to win in the end, he showed some unusual (positive) emotions today. He is far from his best level. did not play too far behind the baselin today.

he said the ball is really quick and rebounds on slice are really low.

Mahut was too tentative at 6:6 and 7:7 in the tie-break, after saving a couple match points in such a stage of the match you have to be more aggressive

Mahut deserved the win i admit, but Richard hold his nerves even when Nico came back in the TB, he survived, that's all he can ask for now. not good enough to do more. he has one day to prepare for his last match of the season.

Such a close match! One feels that either could have won.

Re: Paris R1: Gasquet def. Mahut 7-5 4-6 7-6(7)

Fuck this bullshit result. The crowd along with I'm sure pretty much 80% of fans wanted Mahut to win this. This is a horrible result. Very very disappointing.

Nicolas made some great shots at the net but he missed too many returns, too many easy volleys and wasn't consistent enough in general. But he was the one making most of the plays, and that makes it even more disappointing, he was the one dictating. Damn, he needed this win WAY more than Richie did. Now looks like qualifying at AO.

In the second set, he wasn't dominating, but lucky to win it. In the third he was more convincing, I agree.

I liked what I saw from Richard today, he was close to the baseline on returns, even tried to step in, it did not always work, but it was great to see that he tried. And he did never look as iif he would resignate. Nice emotions at the end.
Mahut served superbly in the third set and hit some gorgeous volleys throughout.
