Good draw for Richie, I hope he can make the most of it.

He plays a Qualifier in the 1st round who could be tierd when he plays Richie so that could play into his favour. So his 1st round match is likely to be played on Tuesday/Wednesday then.

[A.U.H.Qureshi] [R.Gasquet] [R.Nadal] [The Indo-Pak Express] [J.W.Tsonga] [P.H.Mathieu] [E.Gulbis] [J.Ward] [G.Monfils] [F.Verdasco] [Samir Iftikhar]

Re: *** Richie Returns*** 2011 Aussie Summer (Chennai)

Richard should be in this final, and maybe he can win it all. That'd put him up to 1500 points, and right on the edge of the top 24 in the world.

While we are glory-hunting on Richie's would-be accomplishments, care to tell me how high will he go in the rankings if he wins Chennai and goes up to Quarters in AO?

lets not do any of that. It's guaranteed to make him lose first round.

Gasquet eyes Chennai Open title success

Chennai: Putting the days of doping allegations behind him, French tennis star Richard Gasquet today said he has come to the Aircel ATP Chennai Open with an aim to lift the coveted title.

In Chennai for the first time, Gasquet said: "I want to win here. I want to do well in Chennai and prepare for the Australian Open."

Gasquet, a former world number 7, won the 2007 Kingfisher Open in Mumbai on outdoor hard courts. The 23-year-old, who also won two titles on clay this year, told PTI he was comfortable on all surfaces.

"I like hardcourts and I've won a lot on it."

Gasquet found himself in trouble in June 2009 when he was provisionally suspended for testing positive for cocaine, but was later cleared of the allegation. The Court of Arbitration for Sport accepted his explanation that he inadvertently consumed cocaine by kissing a woman in a Miami club.

Gasquet, the fourth seed here, said it would be wrong to assure that the Rafael Nadal era has begun with the world no 1 winning three out of the four grand slams last season.

"Everybody can win. It's hard to say. It could be (Roger) Federer, Nadal anybody. It's 50-50," he said.

During the doping episode, Nadal had come out in support of Gasquet.

Meanwhile, third seed Stanislas Wawrinka's coach Peter Lundgren said he was pleased with his ward who is "open minded and open to criticism."

Calling Wawrinka an "all round, aggressive player," Lundgren said he had been working with the Swiss star on improving his serving and forehand.

"His backhand is his strongest weapon but we're trying to 'even out' his game," he said.

Lundgren also dismissed suggesstions that his former ward, Roger Federer, might be over the hill. "No, he's not finished yet," he said.

"As long as he plays, he'll be in contention for the Grand Slams. It's natural that you can't be the best all the time," he said.

Well he has points to defend in Sydney, so lets just say he defends those as well, if he gets to the Quarters of AO thats 360 more points, so he'd be around 18 give or take due to the movement of others.

Terrible. He can't win both. He doesn't have enough 'Gas' to last 2 weeks in a row, leave alone four. So, I'm pretty sure he'll tank Sydney midway if he makes the final/W in Chennai; or he'll make the finals in both MMs and derail himself in the first round of AO. Clown.

I imagine if he makes a run in Chennai then he'll pull out of Sydney, just because he'll need time to get used to the Australian climate too, and its not something a pro does in one or two days, most people are down there about a week in advance. Though from what I'm hearing, its also very humid in India right now, so the climates may be a lot more similar than normal.

The qualifier Richard has to deal with is Roger-Vasselin.
