I would not bet my house on seeing him playing there, to be honest.
Actually makes a lot of sense IF he plays DC - Already in Germany, been practicing on clay for DC, could use some 250 points and might not have to play until the Wednesday.
As far as playing DC, unless Richard gets injured
, ATM he is definitely the second best Frenchie on clay (and perhaps even the best, depending on which Monfils shows up). I think Richie has shown over the past few months that mentally he is not any weaker than the rest of the possibilites so I can't imagine that he would not be selected. But the unimaginable has happened more times than I can count so who knows.
Richie and Benny at Queens!
my favorite doubles team!
