actually,,,the winner of halle gains 225 points
when the winner of nottingham gains only 175 points
also,,,halle is a non-countable tourament for richard now
IF he wins halle, then he will gain points
in addition,,,i think the seeding of wimbledon will not consider the points that he will gain or loss at nottingham

That is a BIG "IF". I am hoping RIchie does realy well in the next few weeks but seems lately he always has or his fans(including me) have an excuse - hopefully that was just clay court excuses. He needs to play enough to get his confidence back because when RIchie is confident he is really dangerous but we all saw what happens when he isn't... He seems to like Nottingham but I'm not very confident that he could win it three in a row - if he plays it, I hope I'm wrong. Kiss of death - his picture on the poster for Nottingham - hope it's not too much pressure for him?? But first it's Halle. ALLEZ Richie, a grass court trophy would be nice about right now.

I really miss seeing him play. Between the Masters Series TV and The Tennis Channel, I actually saw a lot of his matches during clay court season but it looks like the only tournament I'll actually be able to see during grass court season is Wimbly IF the tournament does the great multi-court on line video streaming that they did last year.

Re: /|/|/|/|/| Grasscourt Season 2007 /|/|/|/|/|

yea but supposedly he wants to reach the top 10 before the season is over, if he really wants that he cant afford to lose points unless he does REALLY good at wimbly which...remains to be seen! i wanna believe that he can but he seems to be dissapointing everytime i think he will really give a great performance

He already was on the poster of Nottingham 2006 so I don't think it's a pressure for him.

IMO, in RG 2007 he suffered from the pressure HE put on himself.. not from the pressure of the medias. The pressure from the medias would have come later... (if that makes some sense)

Anyway, I agree with you that we should stay down to earth and take one match at a time.

true they don't even follow the rankings to give seeds.

very early. We have a saying which translates roughly as: The early bird catches the worm. Good luck Richie on the green grass.

Qureshi is an excellent grasscourt player, no shame in losing to him. On to Nottingham now where hopefully he can defend some of his points.
