ATP - Shanghai > Gasquet : "Là, je peux plus !"

Battu hier à Shanghai, Richard Gasquet a immédiatement pris l'avion direction la France, afin de se reposer avant les tout derniers tournois de la saison. Le Français se dit effectivement très fatigué dans L'Equipe du jour et réclame un peu de repos.

"J’ai puisé ces dernières semaines et je savais que ce serait difficile d’aller loin dans les tournois. J’ai eu du mal à Bangkok sans entraînement, je me suis remis d’une entorse, l’enchaînement a été dur… Et franchement, rajouter encore un tournoi pour tenter de remonter à la Race (Ndlr, en vue du Masters), là, je peux plus ! C’est trop difficile physiquement. Si je jouais la semaine prochaine, je ne pourrais plus jouer à Bercy. J’ai juste envie de faire deux bons derniers tournois. [...] C’est la première fois que je fais une saison pleine sans m’être blessé. C’est pour ça que je suis un peu fatigué."
It looks certain that Richard won't be asking for a Wild Card next week. He's also recovering from a sprained ankle. He feels if he plays next week, he won't be able to play Paris and he just wants to play 2 good tournaments.

Some thoughts on Richard's loss to Radek:

I think his opponent was just better in all department.. I think especially the return of serve and the movement. Stepanek got so many good shots that Richard hit off his forehand (he is hitting his forehand well for third straight tournament!!!). IN the end, Richard fell apart mentally after getting a break in second set, but first set he played well, it's just Radek was better. It may look like a disappointing result, but on any fast surface, Richard would struggle with player like Stepanek, because he rushes Richard on every shot, moves great, serves good, returns good and volleys at higher level.

I hope he won't get discouraged and will continue playing aggressive with his forehand and if he does, then I am sure we will see Richard in top 8 next year. I have no doubt if he continues to play this way, good things will happen.

As I am writing this, Stepanek just won first set against Murray 6-4 playing just as well if not better as against Richard.

Richard 5 wins away from reaching 300 wins on the ATP tour. Can he achieve this before the season ends?

Hopefully he can! Allez!
