Pretty good stuff, from what I saw, although Stepanek dropped his level after the break in the 3rd set. Nice last game, Gasquet actually going after forehands.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Radek was playing some nice attractive tennis in the first two sets. They don't call him sexy for nothing

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

Good job, Gasquet! It is time for Stepanek to retire and spend more time with his beautiful wife!

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!

Re: RG R1: Richard Gasquet SLAYS Radek Stepanek 75 63 60

Alllez Gasquet!!

Good 1st round win against a tricky player! I thought Gasquet got better as the match went on, the 1st set was a bit shaky, he missed some shots which he would not of in other matches. He saved 5/5 break points in the whole match and those 5 were in the 1st set!

Good result and he is in the 2nd round where he will either face Bogomolov Jr or Granollers where it's 1 set Granollers and Bogomolov leads 5-2 in the 2nd.

Tight first set (backhand wasn't working), then Richard rose his level. In the third, he was just toying with Radek !

He even hit a two handed backhand to hit back a smach, and ran around his backhand to hit a forehand !

Re: RG R1: Richard Gasquet SLAYS Radek Stepanek 75 63 60

at Wilander, who spoke about Stepanek getting under Richard's skin during the first set.

Who got under whose skin in the third?

That set was pure pleasure.
