Re: IW QF: Djokovic def. Gasquet 6-2 6-4

People are completely overrating doubles effort. Fed plays doubles instead of training session, it won't affect his physics.

RAFAEL NADAL PARERA

Career HIGHLIGHTS

2007|David Nalbandian strikes lucky to win against Rafael Nadal 6-4 6-0
2008|Mikhail Youzhny escapes Rafael Nadal 6-1 6-0
2008|Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was pushed to the edge by Rafael Nadal 6-2 6-3 6-2

BEST RESULTS ARE YET TO COME....

Re: IW QF: Djokovic def. Gasquet 6-2 6-4

First of all that was compliment to Djokovic with 20% . Even when he is plying poor is able to routinized other guys . And second don't know am I stupid or somebody else is with this statement about good match from Gasquet ? Maybe he even played a good match if he wanted to play on this way , but the tactics were completely wrong . He meant give a trouble to the " hottest " player on the tour playing near the service line judges ???

He gave everything he had in store but Nole is just too good. Obviously, everytime the rallyes were on BH it was even, and everytime Nole blocked Ritchie on FH side, he won the point. Ritchie made not so many mistakes, except end of first set. Damn, if only he had a better FH, he would be great!!

Gasquet could have avoided that bad drop shot on break point in second set though and maybe a few points here and there.

But the best player won comfortably.

Show some respect clown. Gasquet worked thousands of hours on his BH while you were home eating chips and posting mug texts on MTF.

6 games? Gasquet is ready to win a slam.

When you see him like that, you think that if his physique (his main weakness) holds on, there will be a huge battle against Nadal, esp on clay - on hardcourts Djokovic is better even though I'm sure their match here would look like clay and as the final is in the afternoon, Nadal can hope to destroy him physically

I just hope that if he reaches the SF, Fed wins more than Gasquet's 6 games

Maybe if Fed had not played doubles, he would have had one chance out of 10, but playing doubles as well, he has zero chance since it's a too physical challenge for him now.

Maybe Wawrinka would have more chance as maybe with his great physique, he could cut Djokovic out of breathe as Djokovic was in the beginning of second set : quite often Wawrinka-Djokovic matches have been soporific long rallies matches with very few winners
Hopefully that happens, but I do not have that optimism that Djokovic can be defeated.

it worked for a while : Djokovic can still be error prone.

And Gasquet is not a player to hit-and-miss, even more on these slow courts.

Surely Fed would play much more aggressive, but everyone plays his way.

Bad match to watch. Djoko more solid, but everytime Gasquet tried to hit a winner the net bulged. Shocking stuff.

Non-technically Nole served up a bagel and breadstick when he won 6 games straight in the 1st and 6 of 7 games in the 2nd.

my "optimism" is a small chance for Nadal, and a very little chance for Wawrinka
