Gasquet def Safin 6-4 7-6

Amazing match from Richie. Best I have seen from him this year with the one against Murray in Toronto and the one against Haas in DC

Re: Gasquet def Safin 6-4 7-6

Good win but Safin was probably fatigued and not at his best.

Was it attacking tennis from Richard or the recent defensive $@!*, vincayou?

i just can t agree with that
he played well though,particularly in the first set.....but he must really work on his forehand(too many unforced errors or short balls from this side again in this match)

Allez!!

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

Re: Gasquet def Safin 6-4 7-6

Good.

Richie will hopefully have a good ranking after RG next year. He has very little to defend before that due to his horrible start to the year last time around. Of course it would be preferable for him to have a higher ranking now but it is must be fun to play without the pressure of points to defend. His game should suit rebound ace okay, I don't know how he's only won 1 set in three matches at AO.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Richie wasn't all that good today.

No defensive shit. Very agressive, especially in the first set, with very few mistakes. 2nd set was not as good from the middle of it.

Safin was serving very well.

No, RG was very aggressive in the first set, good returns, serve and volley, great performance. One could see what he is capable of.

The second set contained more errors from both players, Richie struggling to hold at 6-5, but he served it out on the first match point on his own serve, what more to wish for?

Probably benefits from a rest having gone deep in the draw last week and with Paris next week. Almost impossible to play deep into 3 tournaments in successive weeks.
