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

didn't see it but if it was anything like the second match yesterday which I did see where Verdasco blatantly tanked at the end to get off court because of the rain then I wouldn't worry too much.

It's just an exo lets see what he does on the real thing.

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

1st set, Richard made errors and Nalbandian hit some good shots. Didn't see the 2nd or the MTB.

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

Hopefully he can get 1 more match before Wimbledon on Saturday maybe against Djokovic or Ferrer.

I hope he doesn't play any more. Don't want him getting some freak injury and then having to play monday that would just piss me off.

True, I hope he's in bottom half and avoids Rafa.
Draw is tomorrow, hopefully a good one! Monfils, Melzer or Fish in the 3rd round!

There are so many unseeded dangerous player possible for R1: Ljubicic, Anderson, Kohlschreiber, F.Lopez, Isner, Petzschner, Gulbis, Karlovic...... Hopefully none of them will draw Richie!!

Then he gets Djokvic who I think would be worse.

But as you point out there are a number of dangerous players we would wish he could avoid so I'm just going to take the positive outlook and say I hope Richard plays better grass court tennis than he has ever played in his life and stays 100% fit/uninjured - then it doesn't matter who he draws - he'll take them out

I don't know the format of this Boodles exo, but during the brief period when I watched yesterday, the commentator said something like "Nalbandian is in the "final" on Saturday.

Saturday is Richard's birthday and while I don't think he will party, he might have better things to do than hanging around at the Boodles, possibly through endless rain breaks/delays.

Richard plays Santiago Giraldo 1st Round.
Wawrinka possible 3rd Rd & Murray possible 4th Round.

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

Tough draw for Richard, Wawrinka possibly 3rd and Murray 4th but I really hope he plays Murray!! ALLLEZ!

It could have been worse. He has to play well from the start, both first and the probable second round opponent are still involved in tourneys.

I am not that keen on so-called easy draws, Richard has in the past sometimes messed up with the easy ones and did well in tough draws, I hope this will continue.

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

Don't worry about Richie, it was only an exh, not "real" tennis...
I didn't consider this win of my fav player over my second fav player as "serious"
I was just happy to see my 2 fav players playing together even if it's fake tennis
