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

I think this was as good as he could have hoped for Anything less than R3 will be a flop...

What did you expect? He is seeded to play other seeds from R3 onwards. Let's just hope for no dangerous qualifiers..

Exactly, overall I'd say it's about as good as it could be. He seemed to avoided the really dangerous unseeded players and from R3 on everyone is "good". Stan is tough but would much prefer him to many other possibilities.

I've stopped looking beyond the first round because so many things can happen in a GS draw - a upset suddenly makes a bad draw really good and an unseeded player or qualifier plays lights out and makes a good draw bad. Richie just has to play as well as he can and the rest will take care of itself.

I'm ready for action.

With him potentially playing Murray in the 4th, he could of faced either Nadal, Djokovic or Federer aswell in the 4th so I think he would of took Murray over the other 3?

If he plays Wawrinka that will be tough but winnable, Wawrinka lost to James Ward last week in Queens.

The most important thing is for Richard to play attacking tennis and I'm sure he can have a good Wimbledon!

I really hope Richard gets to play Murray in 4th round. I still think he is better than Murray on grass when he is playing his best.

i also expect gasquet to win his first grand slam!**


* i need to come here more often- i dont remember the cute little cheerleader!
** yeah i know he already has a grand slam, but i want a single championship no one cares much about mixed doubles

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

It could be a worse draw I think.

I hate it personally because Richard is my favourite, Stan is one of my favourites, Andy is my favourite and Rafa too. So shite quarter and half for me, however he can beat Stan and if he plays his best on grass he's better than Andy too. I wouldnt fancy his chances in a 4th round against any of the other 3.

well i have some trouble counting on gasquet he is a little flakey
i would have liked very much counting on you, but past experience tells me not to!!!!

so i have taken the psychic approach to winning tennis matches
i imagine gasquet winning and supposedly he will
i just havent gotten it quite down yet.
of course when i do, i will have also have won several lotteries and will have the hired help type here- too rich to type
