nice job richard

berdych is the first "real threat player" even if richard beat him quite easily in toronto last year.
It will be his match n°8, he seemed quite tired against sela but berdych had to fight very hard against verdasco so...

ALLEZ RICHARD!GET YOUR TICKET TO SHANGAI!pas de quartiers!

GASQUET

Tsonga - Simon - Monfils - Mathieu - Chardy - Baghdatis
Mannarino - Safin - Santoro - Gulbis- Nishikori

Wooohooo!!!!!!!!
Can Richard win 2 tournaments in a row?
Some excellent tennis from both guys! Richie served amazingly well, 14 aces, more aces than Berdych! Although he lost his service game serving for the first set at 6-5 and didn't start the TB well he managed to finish the TB in style and saved many break points at the start of the 2nd set. And Berdych saved 6 match points in the end, that was some funny stuff.
Well done Richard, now go and win the final tomorrow!
I'm off now! (I'm not in the mood to argue with richie21 )

Re: **__||__** Hardcourt Season 2007 **__||__**

such a great match from richard such an intense one too!so hard to breathe in the first set
berdych fought so hard,it was one of the best richard match since wimbledon.
We will get some confidence with that win,hopefully he will take this finale and beat ferrer in straight sets tomorrow.

Dont think he will play Vienna and he better not play there even if the atp want him to be there.

he will win the tokyo final tomorrow and get enough $$$$ to pay any penalty) sent to him by the atp (pray for a win)

so happy to see him in such a good form

GASQUET

Tsonga - Simon - Monfils - Mathieu - Chardy - Baghdatis

He is still in the draw, though, meeting Nalbandian in the first round.

Superb win against Berdych, Richie, make it to the end!

Well, I was just so happy I could follow the whole match in peace and the quality of tennis from both guys was really high.
I am afraid I won't wake up for the final though (i'll try though but I need some sleep before the next week horror ) so cheer hard!

I was just about to post that about the Vienna draw. I'm pretty sure he won't play, he can refer to 'exhaustion' or whatever, or even pay the fine if needed.
And of course he needs to beat Ferrer in the final.
Are you going to the tournament?

So am I. I read somewhere that you can't withdraw while still playing a tourney elsewhere.

Of course, spying on the opposition and cheering for Ferrero and Gonzalez.

Re: **__||__** Hardcourt Season 2007 **__||__**

Richie

A little bit thinking Ferrer is on his good days this week while Richie still can do the win while Richie, fewer UEs first

Then take a rest for a week, go to Madrid, a good schedule

Allez !!

Good job Richie! One more win and then you can rest.

GOt a little hairy there when he lost his serve at the end of the first set after breaking Berdych but he played a good tie break and a lot better than Berdych played it.

Loved the last game -Richie serving for the match, up 40-0 and then suddenly it's deuce - got pretty funny with Richie hitting aces out wide in the deuce court and then Berdych saving about 4-5 match points only to get aced out wide each time - even Richie laughed after about the 5th time that happened.

Amazing serving display and good thing because his serve bailed him out of many tight spots his FOREHAND got him into because it just sat up high in the middle of the court inviting Berdych to put it away Luckily Berdych missed some easy ones or that 1st set could have turned out differently. I wonder if that was Richie's plan - topspin Berdych to death with easy, half court balls and hope Berdych misses, which he did at times. To Richie's credit- when he really needed the point (like in the tiebreak) he hit a real forehand - hit a nice 1 or 2 in the tiebreak. Don't jump on me for finding the negative - it was just sooo obvious once again to me that if his forehand was half as effective as his serve, backhand and volley were
(which were all great), he would have cruised through Berdych too.

The tennis channel had technical difficulties from the middle of the first game of the 2nd set until 3-1 for Richie so I didn't see how he broke. How pleasantly surprised I was when the match came back to see Richie up 3-1 because when the transmission was lost, Richie was having a hard time holding his serve in that first game and all I could think of was - there he goes downhill..

Oh yea, check out "What the players said" on the ATP site:
Gasquet "I had to play my best tennis [against Berdych] because he is one of the best players in the world and has a great forehand. I am tired after last week but it is one more match so I will give as usual my best."

"I am in the Top 10 of the Race [to Shanghai] after reaching the final. Madrid and Paris will decide who is qualifying. I would really like to make my first trip to Shanghai." HUM - sound familar. Except the part about Shanghai it's the same old - he's a great player, I'm tired, I give my best....

Anyway, I am so happy for Richie. Hope this helps him believe that he belongs in the Top 10 and I can't wait to see him beat Ferrer!
