>>> ALLEZ! Richard @ Wimbledon <<<

Thought we should dedicate a thread to Roland Garros, as it's...well, a little special

First up... Richie will play doubles with Gael Monfils. Wish I could see it and good luck to them both!


GOOD LUCK

Fernando Verdasco | Paul-Henri Mathieu | Richard Gasquet

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga | Marat Safin | Juan Carlos Ferrero | Carlos Moya | David Nalbandian | Mathieu Montcourt | Nicolas Mahut

No he prefers to be concentrated on single (and double) it's more important this year.
I agree !

Re: >>> ALLEZ! Richard @ Roland Garros <<<

He'll be against a qualifier for the first round and he may meet Nadal in the third round ... The French crowd will have to cheer him well...he'll need them but with his talent if he's ok in his head and ready to give a lot physically he could beat him but whatever happens it would be a splendid match...!

Re: >>> ALLEZ! Richard @ Roland Garros <<<

Nadal in the 3rd round = worst nightmare. I have to admit, the best of 5 format will benefit Nadal, because he has better stamina and is a better fighter. Hopefully, Richard will beat the odds. Allez!

Re: >>> ALLEZ! Richard @ Roland Garros <<<

OH!!! Nadal in the 3rd!!! Not really lucky to meet the favorite so early in the draw

Richard was very close to win the semi in MC so...
Nadal will be the favorite so Richard will just have to do his best and enjoy himself not to have regrets.
Anyway, Richard has to reach the 3rd round before that. 1st a qualifier then the winner of wessels/mello.
When will we know the qualifier?

Good luck Richard!

Re: >>> ALLEZ! Richard @ Roland Garros <<<

Great idea for a thread(nice new avator !!!!)

I hope Richard will be able to get past whatever qualifier he will get. I have my fingers crossed that he will be able to score his 1st Grand Slam match victory!! Did you see the part of the draw where there is like 5 qualifier names in a row? That's crazy. LOL

If Richard does get to 3rd round (and Rafa) hopefully it will be a great match. Of course, I'll be cheering for Richard but I would wish both of them luck.

I believe the qualifier will be announced sometime on Saturday, but yeah I could be wrong.

Allez Richard

Re: >>> ALLEZ! Richard @ Roland Garros <<<

I can just imagine the comments from the American commentators if Richard and Rafael do get to play. The young Frenchmen vs the young Spaniard. Seriously, here is someone is under 20 all they refer to them as the young person or the young tennis players every other word out of their mouth is "young". Its so annoing. However, if Richard and Rafa play they are going to have specify which young gun they are talking about. LOL

Allez

Re: >>> ALLEZ! Richard @ Roland Garros <<<

Richard will play Daniele Bracciali(Italy) in the 1st round. The two have never met before.

From the official Roland Garros site:

Richard Gasquet: "To play Nadal in the third round would be fantastic"
It's a fantastic opportunity and a great source of pride to be seeded and avoid a favourite in the first round. Having said that, playing a qualifier in my first game is tricky. My opponent will have nothing to lose and play full of confidence having won three straight to get here. I'll need to be on my guard but if I play as I know I can I should get through the first two rounds. I've seen the draw and the idea of taking on Rafael Nadal in the third round really excites me. I love playing him and it would be a superb match. Before then, I need to win my first match at a Grand Slam and I think the time is right for me. I know there is a lot of expectation after my recent performances but it's good pressure. I'm relaxed and used to the media because even though I'm still young they've been interested in me since Monte Carlo back in 2002.

Allez Richard !
