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.
