Though Navarro Pastor is spanish is a serve&volleyer guy with a good serve therefore he can be dangerous on a fast court.

You're starting to sound like me.

Yup. The scoreline is nothing to be proud of. He can forget about defending his title...

i don t think you are a pessimistic guy at all.......it's just a way for you to not be too disappointed if Richard misperforms.

Good match for Ivan.

Gasquet played quite well last week so it wouldn't surprise me if he upped his game. Then again, it wouldn't surprise me if he totally blows in the next match either. I hope not.

Re: Richard Gasquet def Ivan Navarro Pastor 6-3 3-6 7-5

On paper, Navarro was dangerous because of his serve-volley, and he could have won the match. He led by a break in the first set but an average of 2 df per game lost it and cost him the set. He still df a lot in the rest of the match but some excellent volleying and retrieving kept him in the hunt...a Gasquet lapse from a break up in the 3rd set almost bit him on the ass. Great match!

Re: Richard Gasquet def Ivan Navarro Pastor 6-3 3-6 7-5

Yeah it was...both played well although Gasquet should have won it sooner. When a volleyer and a decent all-round player play well, the match-up is a pleasure to watch. One of the matches of the tournament so far
