Maybe you did not follow DC last year. Richard was injured in summer and Forget preferred LLodra on fast surfaces. I doubt he will pick Llodra this year on clay against Germany. Besides, Richard's ranking is much better than last year when the DC ties were played and Forget usually takes no risks.

Re: Official Gasquet's 2011 Schedule: Madrid (02-05-2011)

i cannot pretend to understand Forget and his thinking on Davis cup lineups - so I have no idea who he will choose to play
BUT -Olympic participation is somehow wrapped up in Davis Cup participation. And the Olympics will be in London on grass next time up
I cannot imagine that Richard would willingly pass up a chance at an Olympic medal on his best natural surface - by refusing to play Davis cup
I do not know if his inclusion as the fifth man qualifies him for the Olympics - I think he has to play at least one tie - so this is his chance to do it .

Re: Official Gasquet's 2011 Schedule: Madrid (02-05-2011)

I may not always agree with Forget's line ups but I actually do understand where he is coming from most of the time. DC is a LONG way off and anything can happen to any of the players but if the selection were today and Forget didn't select Gael and Richard as the obvious singles players I'd have to say he does belong in the nut house.

I would love for Richard to pull a Simon and say to Forget I'll play only if I'm one of the top 4 - no more alternate for me but I just don't think Richard has it in him to do that. Agree with scmom that if an opportunity for Olympics on grass is possible, don't think Richard would pass that up and this coming DC tie on clay might be the only time Richard is a clear choice for a singles spot. but Olympics is even further away so who knows. It is interesting how Federer has suddenly become a DC player now that there's an Olympics on the horizon.

I'm ready for some more Richie clay court tennis!

Roger is not suddenly becoming a DC-player, he is 37-11 in Davis Cup, i.e 48 singles matches overall. He started playing DC in 1999 and the only year he did not play at all was 2010.

Escudé was mad enough to destroy any chance for a french medal by skipping Bartoli and choosing Rezai instead.
Rezai on grass :retard:
Forget is outrageously jealous of Gasquet so he will do what he wants to stop from playing Olympics. And of course he will choose the losing combination Simon-Monfils.
Monfils on grass :retard:
Simon on grass :retard:

Does anyone know where Ritchie is training this week : stay in Barcelona, back in Monte Carlo with Piatti & Ljubi, or soon in Madrid ?

I heard there are some issues between Escudé and Bartoli?

Anyway, it's kind of her fault for not making herself available the past few years...

Not since 2007, when he lost to Qureshi, one of his most embarassing losses ever. No need to return to this place.

What kind of attitude are you encouraging? I'd rather he conquer his demons Having said that, I prefer Queens as a tournament

Richard already conquered quite some demons, while there are still some left. But Queens is the more prestigious tourney with better participation, anyway, so it was the right choice. BTW, will you go?

It's a pity the Queens is only a 250. Ritchie choose a difficult calendar this year, not going to easy 250 he could have win as does Simon. It's the better way to progress in a long term vision, but not improve his ranking immediatly.
