YEAH! If only he could play more than one or two tournaments a year on grass(and sometimes none).

Thanks for the comments on the match - I noticed it would be streamed but actually had to pay attention to work for a while so missed it. Anyway not bad to beat Monfils in first "match" on grass. So he got pissed when he lost focused, even in an exho - good.

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

Thanks all for your posts about the match. I am glad he's back on grass. Looking forward to watching him play. (I'll be overwhelmed with work in the next two weeks though )

My two Favorites!

Yes Richie is Nalby's pigeon big time. It will be interesting to see if Richie can clear this mental hurdle before Wimbly. Even if it is just an exho, any win over Nalby would be a + for him.

Agreed. I actually wanted him to face Nalbandian, Ferrer or Djokovic in this exo. David is a good test, although he can't be at his best, I think Richard has good chance.

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

I have only seen the end. David wins 6-3 0-6 10-5. Some good returns from Rich like on SP, but the rest was rather average.

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

Well. That is an odd score.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

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

And the pigeon continues... Richard wins the second set 6-0 and then remembers he's playing Nalbandian and falls apart in the TB.

I saw last 3 games of second set and the super TB. NOthing great, even if the set was 6-0 and then the pigeon factor took over for RIchie in the TB. In what I saw Richie didn't look very aggressive, except on a few service returns, his serve was really off and don't think he came into net once, except when pulled in by drop shot from Nalby. Hope he doesn't play like that next week.
