RG R2: Gasquet def. Granollers 4-6 6-3 6-2 6-4

Granollers missed an easy volley at 6-4 1-0* 30-15 and after that the momentum completely changed.

Should be tougher against Bellucci, but good that he got through and didn't choke it away like I thought he quite possibly would

Gasquet's forehand really good today, but had some bad court positioning in that first set. Really picked it up after that, so all is well. Good luck against Bellucci.

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

Well done Gasquet.
He'll be the underdog in next round considering Belluci's recent performances on clay(destroyed Berdych and Murray,almost beat Djokovic) but he definitely has a chance.

I think actually it a was a very nice match at parts and a well deserved win for the frenchman.
Loved the moment when Granollers made an out of this world volley at the 1st point of the 2nd set(ball's 2nd bounce was on Marcel's side) and crowd didn't react at all

Re: RG R2: Gasquet def. Granollers 4-6 6-3 6-2 6-4

RG is such a mess on the first wednesday ! Court 1 sounded like a playground, so many kids

Granollers played very well in the first set, exactly the way he had to bother Richie. And Richie wasn't playing great, far behind the baseline, short forhands, etc.
But he wouldn't give up so he fought and started to play better (20 something forehand winners ), and Granollers couldn't keep up with him.

He will have to play a lot better than in the first set against Bellucci.

I hope they put Gasquet and Bellucci on a show court that it deserves even though, they aren't top 10 players.

NIce to see RIchie getting stronger throughout a match. He started off a bit tentative and not serving well but didn't let all those screaming kids bother him, hung in, stepped it up, held his nerve and finished in style.

Gonna need to bring his best next round. If he does it should be a good one. Keep on rolling RIchie!
