Estoril SF: Gasquet def. Ramos 2-6 7-6(1) 7-5 in 3:02

One of the more tedious matches you'll see at this level, but both players competed very hard. Ramos was up 6-3 *3-2 and fell apart. Richie played a lot more solid in the final two sets after a horrible first set, where he was sluggish and made tons of errors. Ramos started leaking a lot of errors the final two sets after patiently dictating play throughout the first half of the match and by the end it was Gasquet winning most of the extended rallies. He fought very hard as always, came back from a break down in the third with aggressive play, but 70 UEs ended up costing him. Richie served well in the third set and that helped him in the tight games on his serve and was a huge difference-maker between he and Ramos. Great win in the end for Richie.

As entertaining Kohli-Lopez was, as boring was this.

Bad match but good for Gasquet. He better play better in the final or else......

I feel like outchoking Gasquet should be something Ramos gets an award for
same with Tomic earlier this year, for being outfought by Muller

I've seen many better matches on the Challenger circuit this year.

Allllez!!

1st set was not good from Richard whereas Ramos was the better play, trying to control the match with his FH. When Ramos broke in the 2nd set but Richard broke back immediately and then from there he was more the solid player! Richard ran away with the 2nd set TB and in the 3rd, he served well and got the break but to give it right back.

Great to be in the Final!

I think it was half Ramos choke, half Gasquet stepping his game up. Then in the third set Ramos was tired. He easily could have won in straights, though, and really lost the plot when he had total control.

Shame that Ramos lost this . Richard pushed in sets 2 & 3, all he did was waiting for Albert's errors. This two always play really tight matches.

I'm surprised. I started watching in set 2 and soon after turned off - good turn around Richard
