Didn't see the match. Everyone seems to be of the opinion that Baghdatis played really well. That said, an early loss was expected from Gasquet. Pretty much every time he goes deep in a tournament he will lose early if he plays the next week.
Baggy was on fire. He was going for his shots and was very competitive in long rallies too. Richie tried to hit the ball harder from forehand wing in the 2d set, but it didn`t help. He could have won with this game against today`s Nieminen, for example, but well... You can`t win that all, still great beginning of the season.
If Richie seriously targeting next tournament in Marseille, sincerely he should have never played in Rotterdam even.
