Well, that was disappointing.

Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

Can someone tell me why France lost? My net has slowed right down so i didn't get to watch the stream properly...Did Richard play well at all?

That 3rd set was unfortunate. Had it been won, we would probably have seen a different outcome to this match.

The first set was excellent by the Czechs and Richard too tentative. In the second the French used their chances, Richie getting better. Unfortunately my stream went down at the end of the third, beginning forth. I felt however, that LLodra's serve became less efficient during the course of the match. The rest of the forth set was again good Czech tennis.

Yes it WAS.

I really couldn't SEE much of the match (except the second set)so could not tell how Richie played but from what I saw it looked like Richie and Llodra just really didn't have the "chemistry" that a doubles team needs. I think Richie is uncomfortable playing the deuce side of the coout that exposes his forehand so much.

Well it's a long road back... But it isn't over yet. Allez Team France. Wonder what Forget is thinking now.

Mika seemed to be having problems with his shoulder.

Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

I didn't see enough of the match through the fuzziness/breaking down streams to draw any conclusions on Richie's play, so thanks for the summary, Puschkin.

All I ask is please don't put Richie in tomorrow against Radek.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
Allez Gasquet~Mathieu~Wawrinka~Mannarino~+++

Thanks for that. It'll be interesting to see what Forget does with the reverse singles. I'm betting he'll just keep Simon though. I'd like to see Richard play singles but I'd hate to see the reaction if he lost. It would be too much pressure for him, especially against that worm Stepanek.
