Re: Richard's Time In The Heat- Summer Season 2011

Good win for Richard against a tricky player! Happy with how Richard served after he got broken in the 1st game.

Fish is next who is in great form, this will be a tough match for Richard but hopefully he plays his best!!

Alllez!!

If he takes the game to Fish he has a good chance! He can't sit on the back foot. Fish serves well so it's important for Richard to do the same!

Re: Richard's Time In The Heat- Summer Season 2011

Yeah! I had some doubts about this one - Anderson is a big server who has been playing well. Stats look like RIchard served VERY well.

Well we know it will be on a Big Court tomorrow and there will be a crowd - which Richard seems to like, just that the crowd will be for Fish. And it could be a night match since Fish is the top American. A win over Fish would be WONDERFUL. I can't figure out what is so good about Fish but must be something.

Hopefully not. Firstly, I don't want to get up in the middle of the night, and secondly, Richard has not done well in late matches this year. Let Federer and Blake have the night match!

Fish is playing the best tennis of his life and he easily beat Richard last couple times they played on hardcourt. Richard is pretty big underdog.

Re: Richard's Time In The Heat- Summer Season 2011

Ritchie's only chance is a low 1st serve percentage for Fish and returning as many balls as possible on first serve, because once the exchange starts, he has much better chance to win rallyes than Fish.

Sorry but

Fish has been playing an aggressive game with relatively few errors the past couple of weeks. Unless Richard forces himself to attack and take more risks, I see him getting pushed around by Fish

Re: Richard's Time In The Heat- Summer Season 2011

Richard mentally so owned there at the end of first set. Now, the question is will Richard quit playing like he did last year against Fish or will still try?

RIchard is playing so passive, it is not even funny anymore. He hit what 3 winners in first set? He is not playing to win.

Re: Richard's Time In The Heat- Summer Season 2011

Come on Richard, 1st set was passive, did not like it at all!!

Good start to the 2nd set, he holds to 30!

Re: Richard's Time In The Heat- Summer Season 2011

Those 2 returns which Richard made when Fish was 30-0 in his service game is the way to play!!!

exactly. That was his best return game so far, Fish had to come up with goods to hold and that's fine. He just needs to realize he has to play this level and take chances to have any chance against player who is playing top 5 level tennis (although not in this match).
