Difficult to play against a cramping player. One of his hardest matches ever

Re: Clay Court Season 2012 - Roland Garros

Maybe he'll go to plan B after a horribly defensive first set. He should have lost that set much worse than he did.

Can't stand to watch it any more, he makes Simon look like the ball bashing Tsonga. I'm off to play tennis myself and hope he does a 180 or it will be a quick loss. WAKE UP RICHARD!!

I hope you did not really leave. In the second set Richard started playing and this was already too much for Haas, in the third set, Richard became rather unplayable, Haas disappeared and never came back. Richard hit winner after winner, it was great.

Re: Clay Court Season 2012 - Roland Garros

Great stuff against Haas after rather passive first set. He was getting killed with dropshots..
He won like 15 games in a row. Overall maybe best tennis he ever played at Roland Garros. I think he has decent chance against Murray and should be fresh too.

Allez!

Alllez!!

Great last 3 sets from Gasquet, hit some mad winners!! Haas was good in the 1st set, dictating the play.

Murray next!!

Re: Clay Court Season 2012 - Roland Garros

what a beautiful display of tennis after a slow start . am really happy with his ability to refocus in these matches , change up a losing game plan and execute a better one. when he is firing shots like in the final three sets today , he is just too good. well done !

I see that my "tough love" worked! Sounds like I need to watch the replay to see the tennis I've been waiting for him to play for 5 years(Wimbledon 2007) - just hope it isn't another 5 years before he does it again.

Anyway BRAVO Richie! now PLEASE bring it for your match against the british drama queen.

Re: Clay Court Season 2012 - Roland Garros

So much for RIchard's improved mental strength... On the positive side, he did play more aggressively than I've seen him play in a loooong time and that was nice to see. Too bad he completely lost the plot and let Murray get on a roll.

Maybe Richard's back is hurting, I haven't seen him miss so many overheads ever .

Re: Clay Court Season 2012 - Roland Garros

Gasquet loses focus too soon. Not good to lose to Murray on clay, who doesn't have a single weapon to trouble Gasquet, except he's really smart and reads Gasquet's mind like a book.

He really tried in the forth set, but Murray makes no mistakes at all and serves at 70% which he rarely does.

Richard is normally a good at smashing, but Murray's incredible gets took it away from him. And the double fauts at bad moments did not help either.

Murray was the better player today, outright impressive.
