it would be very very strange : going to Buenos-Aires with the jetlag, play on clay ... and then go back to Dubai, would be nonsense.

Sometimes players who want to make money make a little bit strange choices, but it's not Gasquet's case :

last year, nearly all of the good players who players Buenos-Aires also played Acapulco

WOW! Thanks for that find. Very interesting news.
He obviously wants to have a go on clay. Almost certainly Acapulco the week after. Can't see him travelling back to Dubai. And one week after Acapulco is DC in France on indoor hard. Does that mean Richard does not expect to be selected?

Re: Official Gasquet's 2010 Schedule & Scoring. 1st Up Brisbane (04-01-2010)

well I think at best he'd get selected in doubs and why should he have to thnk about dc. Let Tsonga, Monfils and simon have a go.

Richard is going back to basics I think. He used to be most comfortable on clay, maybe he is trying to find himself and have a good go at Roland Garros.

From what I read Monfils is also committed in Acapulco.

And anyway, I think now Gasquet can feel free about Davis Cup for his scheduling : 3 other French players have been in the top-20 for more than one year and clearly have the edge over him.

And another French player has always been selected in doubles.

He is the 7th ranked french player at the moment isn't he.

Tsonga, Monfils, SImon, chardy, Benneteau and PHM are all ranked above him I think and as already said Llodra is a lock for the doubles. Even if a couple of the others are injured, he is unlikely to be picked so it shouldn't even enter into his mind.

Re: Official Gasquet's 2010 Schedule & Scoring. 1st Up Brisbane (04-01-2010)

WOW - This is a NEW RIchie.

When's the last time he played clay in SOuth America? (has he EVER?, in challengers?). Maybe Richie has been dreaming of MOnte Carlo, was it 2005 against Fed?

Yeah, I'm guessing he's pretty much written off DC this year which is probably a good thing, let the others carry the load, unless of course FRance is in the finals and then I know Richie would want to be a part of that. I know there are differing opinions about DC but he does seem to enjoy being part of the Team (excpet of course the U.S, disaster) and if he does enjoy it I hope he can become part of it again and if not well he has a good "out".

Re: Official Gasquet's 2010 Schedule & Scoring. 1st Up Brisbane (04-01-2010)

Yh it will probaly be Acapulco after Buenos Aires.

Before Buenos Aires is Rotterdam (Indoor Hard) & Costa do Sauipe (Clay) which both start on 08-02-2010. Richie did play Rotterdam last year but I don't see him travelling from Europe to South America so maybe he could play Costa do Sauipe.

So maybe 3 Clay Tournaments in a row for Richie.

08-02-2010: Costa do Sauipe, Brazil
14-02-2010: Buenos Aires, Argentina
21-02-2010: Acapulco, Mexico

Re: Official Gasquet's 2010 Schedule & Scoring. 1st Up Brisbane (04-01-2010)

It''s a smart move anyway. His ranking has dropped so he won't automatically qualify for MS tournaments (which means he doesn't have to use them as part of his best of 18). He can use smaller events with weaker draws to boost his ranking until he is in a decent position again. For example he is defending semis in dubai but the draw for the clay 500 that week is generally weaker.

He clearly has a plan which is a big step forward too. I feel excited for him.

He played mainly clay court challengers in 03 I think (I wasn't a fan back then) and I'm sure he played the south american tournies in 04, so maybe he really is going back to basics.
