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

Oh this sucks! No Queens for him, why does this always happen? Fingers very crossed for Wimbledon. Another year without him would be too much to take for him and all of us 

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

I wouldn't bet on him getting an Eastbourne wildcard. Last year he was refused one. Didn't need it in the end anyway due to injury but I remember reading a news article where he'd asked for one and they'd said no. I'm not sure he would ask after that.

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

The difference from last year and this year is Richard's ranking, he is ranked number 13 that has 2 count for something. Looking at last year WC, they gave 2 of them to the Brit players and 1 to Simon. I'm still hopeful he can get one if he is fit.

Some of the top seeded players may withdraw and the addition of Richard could do the tournament good.

L'Equipe:

"Gasquet a repris.
Touché à la cuisse droite pendant son 1/8ème contre Djokovic à Roland-Garros, forfait au Queen's, Richard Gasquet est tout à fait dans les temps pour Wimbledon. Il a repris la raquette hier et se rendra dès samedi à Londres pour y disputer deux matchs exhibitions, la semaine prochaine à Stoke Park. Gael Monfils sera également de la partie. "C'était une grosse contracture, limite élongation. La douleur n'a disparu qu'il y a deux jours." expliquait hier Gasquet."

"Gasquet has resumed.
Hit in the right thigh during his 1/8th against Djokovic at Roland Garros, Queen's package to Richard Gasquet is quite in time for Wimbledon. He took over the racket yesterday and will travel on Saturday to London to play two exhibition matches next week at Stoke Park. Gael Monfils will also be taking part. "It was a big spasm, limited elongation. The pain has disappeared two days ago." Gasquet explained yesterday. "
Good to hear that the pain has gone!

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

This is really the tournament of the year for Richard.
He could do some damage. Will he be seeded 13-16 or 17-20?

Yeah, he's missed the last 2 Wimbledon's, hopefully he will make up for it in 2011.

It looks like Richard will be seeded 17-24.

Obviously some confusion at the Boodles. Now the same link says: Richard-Gael at 14.30. And he is still not on the players' list.

I think Querrey pulled out, he was struggling with his arm in Queens.....

Confirmed here.

Djokovic et Gasquet s'entraînent à Londres
Novak Djokovic est arrivé à Londres. Le numéro 2 mondial s'est entraîné ce lundi avec Richard Gasquet sur les "practice courts" d'Aorangi. Il ne disputera pas le moindre match officiel avant Wimbledon. Gasquet, lui, est inscrit au Boodles Challenge, une exhibition qui débute demain.

Well they certainly are 2 different personalities so in that sense I guess it is funny but other wise, I think it's great he's practicing with Djokovic.

I used to not like Nole at all but I think he's grown up and cut out a lot of his antics and now I like him and respect his obvious effort to change and get a new mature/get down to business attitude.

Not saying I'd like Richie to turn into a Nole - like there is any chance of that but imagine where Richard would be if he had Nole's new found physical strength and endurance and just a TINY BIT of Nole's confidence.....
