Out of all the possible top 8 seeds to get drawn into, he gets Nadal... in Spain... on clay.

Let's hope he at least makes the 3rd round, that's the best we can hope for.

He got Hernych in first round and with Richard anything can happen. Overall, given his early round opponents this is actually a good draw.

ANd he enjoys a tough match with no pressure against Rafa.

And to be realistic, Richie isn't a challenge to Rafa on clay, but then practically no one is so the tournament website isn't really far off about that part.
yes you're right but if he can play more than 2 matchs in that first clay court tournament that would be already HUGE according to his shoulder problems.
SO if he can play 3 matchs,that would be even better imo

Is Richie playing Estoril now or not? He said at Monte Carlo he is playing 4 tournies which I would assume to be Barca, Rome, Madrid and RG. But he is down for Estoril??

Oh no, I may aswell post my sobbing smileys now, and it's not that I am being pessimistic, I just don't think anybody is going to beat Rafa. Let's hope I'm wrong, you never know.

Depends on when Rafa plays his matches I guess. He will meet Richie round 3 if he wins I think so depends if he plays round 2 on tues or wed.

Well we waited so long to see him play guess another week won't kill us...

Just hope his shoulder is 100% and STAYS 100%. Bonne chance Richie!

EDIT- He's not on OOP for Monday so guess he's the second day - so maybe his third round will be on Thursday afterall - just hope he GETS TO third round.

I think all 3rd round is played Thursday?

Well, we'll see, hope he is fully fit and at least gets to the 3rd round.

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?
