Richard defeats C. Rochus 7-6 6-3, hitting 23 aces.

Nevertheless, the beginning was tough. Rochus did not play poorly and Richard was tense. Rochus gifted him the TB with a DF. More aggression by Richard in the second set, he had many break chances at 2-2, but did not convert them. But instead of getting frustrated, he won his own serve easily and was inspired in Rochus' next service game, breaking him to love, hitting some glorious BH winners on the way. The rest was a formality, with Richard breaking Rochus once more.

i have not watched his play since wimbledon but he played much worse than my expectation and to be honest, i thought rochus's game was more beautiful than richard's in the first set

He said his knees and elbow have been bothering him since last week, so I guess that explains why he was so far below his normal level.

He can only get better. Allez!

I didn't watch the match, but seemed tighter than I had expected.
He will face Tsonga, hopefully Tsonga beats himself as usual. If Tsonga gets his head together, I kind of expect that Richie will be really struggling.

Allez Richard.

Re: ▲▼▲▼▲ Indoor Season 2007 ▲▼▲▼▲

gasuqet was good i thought...And rochus was playing very good too..
The best sign is that gasquet is close to the base-line while recieving and on the 2nd serves he comes in and attacks....Really good stuff...Allez....beat Baby-ali..

Allez Richieeeee...!!!!!....!!!

Whew! Sounds like the first set was a winning ugly sort of set - but good thing is he won when not playing well. Hopefully he will feel a little more relaxed after a tense first set and play a good match against Tsonga (he'll need to). ALLEZ RICHIE!!

Yes... he has been very lucky Rocus offered him a df at crucial time to give him a set point. I don't know what would have happened without this gift.

Anyway, he played better in the second from 2-2 to the end. Hopefully, Richard will be fit and move well tomorrow. The good thing is his serve was here today.

Good luck tomorrow !
