Yeah you're right, but don't worry, people are not so naive. Whatever they say, people will joke about Monfils and Tsonga just as much as they will do about Ritchie. Tsonga was pityful -d. by n°47!- and people know that. They will think "who beat him?" and read its Dologopolov and then think "WTF". And Monfils, well, everybody knows Monfils. At least when they read Gasquet beaten by Berdych they may remember the Wimbledon's finalist.
Personally, I'm just disgruntled because there was nothing to be saved from his last match. It was "old Ritchie" all over again, like he had no coach to tell him what to do, what must be changed. He looked like a junior against a pro. Like a deer in the headlights.
Its his humongous talent that invites all the blame on him.
Thing is Richie has a head of his own and actually is capable of sound tactics which he does try and execute with little luck these days. If we could rewind time back to 07 (when we thought Richie had finally arrived) and press play from there, we could fix him a coach who'd rid him his nerves for good, teach him to close matches, stay fit and not give up - we'd see him winning 6-7 tournaments in a year. But we cant do that.
What we can hope is to see him schedule reasonably, compete in many small tournaments in a year and become an MM king/ finalist of sorts. That'll give him confidence, make him tactically sound again and strong in the head.
For Richard 250 >>> than 500/1000/ Slam. He should not miss the chance to compete in one 250.
