Madrid R1: Gasquet def. Bellucci 4-6 6-4 7-6(5)


Bellucci saved 6 MPs, but couldn't save the 7th one, what a dramatic match it was!

Awesome match but gasquet will be very tired in his next round match. The backhand on match point was electric. keep it going Richard

Re: Madrid R1: Gasquet def. Bellucci 4-6 6-4 7-6(5)

Both of them are awful. Bellucci for literally pissing his pants as soon as it got to 4-5 in set two and not recovering until 2-5 down in the third. Then after missing 27 break back points at 3-5* in the third, he finally broke back and saved another match point at *5-6. After all that, he then went up a mini break and then proceeded to miss an open court volley followed by a horrendous dropshot and then two errors to give away the match points.

Meanwhile, Gasquet spent most of the match just shamelessly moonballing and pushing until Bellucci made an error or else shanked/hit an awful dropshot he could put away. He needed 8 match points across 2 games and the TB to finally win, and he was generally just his gutless, pointless self.

Two horrible wastes of talent.

Gasquet's gonna be so tired after this match + his long matches in Estoril. Troicki will win in 2

He got back into the TB by pushing but ironically, converted his 7th MP by ripping a BH
