It's possible... say he wins Monte Carlo, then rests in Munich, wins Rome, rests in Hamburg, then wins Roland Garros...

That's the attitude! Vlad! Take note Richie.

With no Roddick, Blake or Berdych he still gets a Top 8 seed - Think 2005, RIchie...

It's not always a good thing to be handed a bye in the 1st round.

Good luck to Richie.

Richie was lucky enough to be in the 2nd quarter. It's the 1st quarter of the draw where the players will slaughter each other...

Richie will most probably play Santoro in the second round.

I'll take it match at a time and then we'll see... his first opponent is ok which is either Fabrice, who RIchard plays well against or qualifier.
