stamina, clearly.

he took too long to gain the consistency and tactics to trouble Hewitt and then didn't have the legs to work that until the end.

He really needed to snatch one of those first two sets, IMO

You as his coach richie21 since you seem to like criticising Deblicker.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I'm impressed that he made it all the way to a 5th set, but his body should be able to hold up physically even when he's playing for 3 hours or more. Poor Richie!

Experience?


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

None of the above.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Nothing really. He's a good player. One of the best in the world.
If Fed and Nadal weren't around, he would be a top 5 pick for every slam.

He needs to start important matches like these better. He could have avoided having to go to a 5th set

You should know by now that he's the slowest learner ever. Very immature.

Re: what does Gasquet lack to become a real threat in Grand Slams??

he nees to mature, just like vaidisova, ivanovich and sometimes monfils. When your in the top 20 theres nothig ou can improve tennis wise besides tactics and working on some weak points

Nadal~Federer~Baghdatis~Tursonov

Gonzo-Safin-Hewitt-Robredo-Verdasco-Moya-Nalbandian-Roddick-Kolya

"He has no idea what he is writing anymore or who he is writing to. He just puts “lol” and moves on to the next window. The girl is probably telling him that her kittens died and he just says, “lol.” "Tursunov on Monfils
