Re: Richard In The Australian Summer 2012- Sydney

He was passive on his own bp, Istomin is not giving him much, a few errors and break against him. I wonder if he really wants to win this, he was much more alive in Perth.

Re: Richard In The Australian Summer 2012- Sydney

This is exasperating. He deserves to lose!

Re: Richard In The Australian Summer 2012- Sydney

Richard is just not willing to take any sort of initiative in rallies and on return. If Istomin continues this level, he will win this match. Richard is getting some mid courts balls and fairly good looks on second serve return, but he is just willing to put the ball back in the middle of the court with little pace. I am not sure what he is thinking out there today.

Re: Richard In The Australian Summer 2012- Sydney

Oh Richard. Very irritable tonight.

I did wonder his intentions playing Sydney but seems he likes to play every week these days, according to his schedule for this year. Maybe some nice women there or something.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
Allez Gasquet~Mathieu~Wawrinka~Mannarino~+++

Re: Richard In The Australian Summer 2012- Sydney

Istomin is just mediocre, not even playing above his level

I still can't believe that volley on BP

We'll see soon, if he tries to up his level. If he continues like that, I'd call it a tank.

Re: Richard In The Australian Summer 2012- Sydney

"Allez" from Gasquet after holding for a 3-2* lead.

I missed the BP, how did Istomin save it?
