Bring on the Grass Season!!! :D

Now that Richard is out of Roland Garros already, its time to look forward to the Grass Season!

The first stop is Queen's from June 6th - 12th.

Our boy will also celebrate his 25th birthday on the 18th of June!

And then Wimbledon from June 20th - July 3rd!

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

Alllez!!

Hopefully a good grass court season and as many points as possible, Richard isn't defending anything for Queens or Wimbledon therefore it should give him a bigger motivation to do well and move up the rankings!!

A week till it starts but Richard will play on either Tuesday or Wednesday.

Ah, my favorite part of the season! bring it on, indeed.

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

Didn't he get to the second or third round of Queens last year before he pulled out?

3rd round if I remember correctly, but he needs more than a QF to improve his points.So in fact he is not defending anything until Gstaad.

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

To make semi in Queens, he must beat a top 4 seed (Nadal Djoko Murray or Fish) NOT EASY!
But if Novak and Rafa withdraw (everything is possible), Gasquet is seed n°4
*Dream on*

Murray might have to let his ankle heal. He said after his match today he was on more pills than Ozzie Osbourne and he'll need to be in top shape for his whipping by Richie at Wimbly . And maybe Nadal and Djoke will wear each other to total exhaustion in the FO final and need more than a week to recover - one can dream...

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

If Djokovic wins, he'll probably want to avoid playing Queen's dead tired so as not to sabotage his streak. If he loses, he'll probably withdraw out of depression

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

He's 13th now. He needs a good result to overcame Troicki and be seeed 12th in Wimbledon, to avoid the top4 in R16.

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

That's a lovely team

Can't wait to see him play on grass. It's been a very long three years of wait!

Mathieu | Gasquet
Federer
Dimitrov | Ancic | Baghdatis | Eysseric | Herbert

Allez Les Bleus

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

Since 2006, he only lost against Federer twice, Nalbandian, Murray (famous five-setters) and Qureshi ( grass specialist- weird loss anyway) on grass
Only top players except Qureshi.
A loss against Clement doesn't count because it was indoor due to rain.
