Re: ~*Musketeer-to-be*~Richard Gasquet

I just checked all these sites and none of them have ANYTHING about the match!! Not even a mention that he won, nothing!!! I actually find that really surprising but anyway

Séb Grosjean ; Arnaud Clément ; Guillermo Coria; Marcos Baghdatis; Jo Jo Tsonga
Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick are arrogant pigs

Re: ~*Musketeer-to-be*~Richard Gasquet

I would think there would be a little more ink about it, yeah. Mind you, Calleri isn't exactly... Ferrero or something. But still.

The match was shown in Argentina at least. My friend watched it, and i got a couple comments from her. Apparently he just outplayed Calleri. I'm a fan of Calleri, so my first question to her was "wtf did Calleri do wrong?" and she said "nothing"... so that's good for Richard She was impressed with how well Richard changes pace.

I've still never seen him play

Question - I was reading some gasquet sites, and have to ask... um, is it my imagination, or is there a tiny bit of Nadal resentment among a few of the fans? I literally mean a few... like, the majority just talks about Richard. But it's hard to miss the "I hope he destroys him when they play!" and "nadal is just a basher, not aplayer like richard!" comments that people make. What is the deal with that ,exactly?

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: ~*Musketeer-to-be*~Richard Gasquet

Uh, amusingly enough, one of the posters who seemed to hold a little erm, resentment against Nadal, has suggested many times that they play doubles together

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: ~*Musketeer-to-be*~Richard Gasquet

i knew nothing.. nothing..... didn't know richard was still 'alive' lol....

richard and rafael have both been much hyped by tennis media in the last two years, and rafael so far has turned out to be a real deal.... maybe some fans think they have bet on the wrong horse, hehe....

richard still has a long long way to go so i am not that bothered with the 'race'.

Thanks for that Rebecca....it's good to hear!! It's amazing how well he can play, and how bad he can play, there isn't really a middle ground for him...so this is very good!


GOOD LUCK

Re: ~*Musketeer-to-be*~Richard Gasquet

Gasquet: “ This is a great win for me. I came here I had no confidence, I hadn't play like this in a long time. Everything was great tonight, the court, the public, the opponent. I respect Calleri a lot, he is a great player who hits the ball hard.”

“I am more interested in playing good tennis than in the victory. It is great to be here. The level of players is so high. It is great for me to be practicing with such players and be playing against them in tournaments. I can only benefit from this experience.”


GOOD LUCK

Fernando Verdasco | Paul-Henri Mathieu | Richard Gasquet

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga | Marat Safin | Juan Carlos Ferrero | Carlos Moya | David Nalbandian | Mathieu Montcourt | Nicolas Mahut

Re: ~*Musketeer-to-be*~Richard Gasquet

translation of fft article:
FROM FFT SITE:
First Quarter Final for Gasquet
For the first time in his career, Richard Gasquet is in the Quarter Finals in an ATP tournament. In Buenos Aires, he has caused an upset, beating the number 5 seed Agustin Calleri.

Far from France and far from all the pressure, Richard Gasquet continued his run in the South American tournament, beating two clay court specialists. Beaten in the first round at Vina del Mar in Chile, the young French hope, at 17 1/2 years of age, has qualified for the quarters at Buenos Aires.

Its the first time that Richard, who has been accompanied by his father, has won two consequetive matches on the ATP circuit (not including qualifications). After beating Spaniard Fernando Verdasco, Richard has been playing a good tournament so far and played a big match against Agustin Calleri, who is ranked 21st in the world.

Richard's next round match will not be any easier and will play 3rd seed Nicolas Massu who is also 14th in the world. He could be joined by Olivier Patience who playes Acasuso in the second round.
