Re: Bring on the Grass Season!!! :D

Alllez!!

Good performance from Richard, great W/UE ratio!!
Richard got off to a great start and setting the standard from there, he also did that in the 2nd set. Slow start in the 3rd, twice a break down but he played a good return game at 4-4 to get the break and served it out to Love!

Bolelli is 2 sets up against Wawrinka currently.

Re: Bring on the Grass Season!!! :D

I know grass isn't Wawa's favourite surface but I don't think it's Bolelli's either!

Re: Bring on the Grass Season!!! :D

Except for the giant brainfart in the the beginning of the 3rd, pretty good match from Richie. In fact he was looking like he had his grass court feel again.

Not good that he still can't seem to concentrate for 3 full sets (maybe he needs some ridelin) but it is good that he has been able to reverse the brainfrat quickly and not let it turn into a disaster as in the past - might not be so easy to do in coming rounds but O.K. for now.

NOw Stan and Bolelli make it 5 long ones...

Re: Bring on the Grass Season!!! :D

Wawa will win this game probably. Tough 3rd round ahead for Richie

Bolleli wins

Richard had better bring it and seize this opportunity. Bolleli can be tough on a good day

I only saw the last game & TB but Bolelli looked surprisingly good - hopefully he used up all his great forehands and mental focus in the match with Stan.

Re: Bring on the Grass Season!!! :D

Wow, Bolelli in 3.
Didn't see that coming.
Happy for Simone Was Wawa poor, or Simone in form?

Re: Bring on the Grass Season!!! :D

i heard some announcer say that they thought that bolelli could win a couple more rounds.
i dont think so- beat gasquet and murray??? nah...funny the announcer was british. guess they either didnt think much of murray or gasquet for that matter. or didnt seem to know of the draw

i dont think stan looked that great.
gasquet has played bolelli three times and never lost. i cant see gasquet losing on grass to the guy

I agree. It would be the most dramatic loose ever for Richard ( in the context)

Wouldn't go that far; he's had some whopper losses throughout the years.

Maybe BOlelli played out of his mind yesterday but the games I saw he looked good. Agree that Richie should win but ya never know...

Re: Bring on the Grass Season!!! :D

3rd on Court 14 after 2 WTA matches. Is Court 14 even televised?

Court 14 is a stream (or at least was) on espn3.com, not sure if it is picked up on other streams/TV.
