Re: Davis Cup

Look at this, Guy Forget!
Richard can well play in DC with the right guy on the bench.

Nice win!

When he wins for his country it really seems to lead to a good boost for his confidence.

Re: Davis Cup

I did not see much of the dead rubber, my stream collasped too often to get an idea about the match, but always nice to win. Good weekend for Richard.

Why can't Richard play like this on the ATP circuit more often!! Letting loose on both BH and FH. You could tell he had no pressure on him, just playing his game!! Great 3 day for Richard and France!! Allez!!

Am I into a false impression due to the fact that Richard is my favorite player and that I follow his result more than the other players results, but I feel that Richard is always tight in the beginning of a match and that it's kind of unusual to regulary lose his serve early in the matches or in the sets like that.

It's ok against players like Weintraub or Sela, it's even ok against an 31 years old and tired Davydenko, but vs the top 10, if he doesn't learn to be clutch from the first point, he will just give himself an unnecessary handicap.

Richard withdraws.

It's a good decision for the long run that Gasquet isn't playing. He needs to rest the ankle and the season is only 1/3 completed. Also changing surface to the Clay may have been too much for the ankle at this short time. I remember in 2011 when he played the dead rubber against Verdasco and did more damage to his injury. Allez France!!

Exactly, I still can't forgive Forget for this, it cost him the rest of the season. There is no need to aggravate things. I have predicted it this morning on the Simon-thread already, it was suspicious that Richard hardly practised in Buenos Aires, even if all practises were impeded by the rain, he was on court much less than the other guys. Get well, Richard for Monte Carlo, I am looking forward to meeting you there.

Re: Davis Cup

Yes, it is the right decision.

It's too bad because playing and winning for his country somehow seems to give Richard extra confidence. See how it was good for him to win the bronze in London.
But anyway, it's really important to not make the injury worst. Plus Richie has already played 26 match this year, so it's definitely better to rest.

I'm gonna attend to the MC tournement for the first time this year. Can't wait.
I'm praying that Richie will reach R16 there. About that, is Del Potro's WC gonna cost Richard the 8th seed since he is number 8 on the entry list ? Or does the current ranking will determine the seeds, therefore Richard will be above Janko ?

I believe Monte Carlo is using current ranking for seeding so if Federer is the only top 10 missing, then Richard, being #9, will be seeded 8.

I think Forget really f'ed up Richard (and Gilles) with his Davis Cup decisions. He struck me as a bully.
