Re: Richie In The States- 2 Masters 1000. Indian Wells (11-03-2010)

I am getting despaired, the same number of points, the guy really lacks any luck which might help once in a while.

I admit, I am disappointed, I did not expect him losing to Greul, after his reputedly good play in Toulon. And of course I have found my scapegoat for this performance: DAMNED Davis Cup.

I tend to think this whole little Spring hard court season is a mistake.. he should have stayed and practiced on clay till European clay court season. To me he has much better shot over in Europe. We all know he won't win a match in Miami because he never does well there.
I say forget about all hardcourt disasters this year, pack your bags and head to clay again.

Hey hey guys, no despair please. IW isn't important, when is the last time he (or any Frenchies for that matter) did something good there ? I think there are positive points to look at : Greul may have been playing the match of his life, we don't know, and Richard fought until the end, judging by the score, so he didn't give up.

Of course it is disappointing because we know how much more he can shine, but remember that not so long ago we were struggling with a lot more important matters : whether or not he would be allowed to keep playing. There will be brighter tomorrows

I could not agree more. Hopefully Markus reads this forum.

True, but still such a close defeat against this opponent needs some time to digest.

I think it is too early for that. I have it said elsewhere and I repeat, I would have been suspicious if the collaboration with Markus would have shown immediate results. That would somehow been more of the same: up and down, up and down. If he is really going to change things, it will take longer, but it will be also more sustainable.

When did you start folowing him? Today? Richard had to suffer much more than a 1st round defeat in a masters event throughout his carreer and he is still there.

Luck has nothing to with it. He has got to LEARN HOW TO CLOSE OUT A SET/MATCH, especially against a player like Gruel. Until he gets what I really think has been a mental block straightened out, it doesn't matter how great he plays in practice, how fit he is or how good his new coach is.

Well NEVER EVER thought I'd say this but perhaps Challengers is the thing for him right now - only problem is if he looses first round in Sunrise, might as well kiss any hope of finding some confidence good bye.

Not gonna give up on him but

I heavily disagree and certainly not in Miami.

Richard is a feel player, like it or not, he never did well in IW or Miami, never! Maybe it is the location, the climate or it is just not his time of the year. It would be totally wrong to force things.

sorry puschkin- i too think he is in real trouble. you are referring to a different gasquet at a different time

considering whom he lost to and the drug issue , i cant see him coming back.
a person with a stronger personality might have been able to fight back but not gasquet


a challenger isnt going to help because i dont think he will win there either.
besides a guy that was in the top ten three years ago?
what is MAYBE winning a few games there going to do for gasquet? nothing.

btw- i am not giving up on him just have real strong doubts
