Roland Garros R1:  Gasquet def. [Q] Zopp 6-3 6-4 7-6(4)
Good match from Richie. Served very well on big points, played offensively when the opportunity arose, and was consistent overall, held Zopp accountable with his level.
Zopp hit many huge forehands, lost only nine points on first serve, hit 42 winners and was 23/28 at the net, dictated a lot of play, but made too many errors when he was out of position and not in a position to go for a winner. Zopp was 0/6 on BPs, didn't return consistently well, serve percentage was a bit too low, which cost him in the final tiebreak, and got beaten repeatedly with the serve down the T in the ad court on big points. All in all, he gave a great account of himself and showcased his threatening offensive ability, with more experience, he could have won a set or two here.
