Mm so true.. But you know lately these days all the claycourt specialists are doing well on hard courts.. It's the case for me.. the slow red clay that I grew with helps with the hardcourt games.

Re: ~*~ Hardcourt Season: US Open ~*~

Very reassuring news concerning Richard from today's L'Equipe!

Gasquet a repris
Richard Gasquet , qui avait souffert à Cincinnati d'une inflammation au coude, a retrouvé la raquette hier après quelques jours off. «Ca va beaucoup mieux.», se réjouissait-il, pas mécontent non plus de son tirage au sort qualifié de «pas trop mal». Son programme de reprise est très classieux. Hier, il a tapé la balle avec safin sur le court Louis-armstrong, le central bis de Flushing Meadows. Aujourd'hui, il donne la réplique à Hewitt. et quand Rusedski est venu lui demander son concours pour une séance, le très courtisé Français a dû poliment décliner l'invitation: «Non, Greg, j'ai déjà quelqu'un...». _ F. Ra.

That's better than the anectdote about him saying that he sweated so much that he had bubbles coming out of his shoes that Marine posted earlier... That's more flatering at least...

Plus a little something about his first round opponent:

L'adversaire de Gasquet
.Alberto Martin .
.(Espagne)
.Vingt-sept ans, né le 20août 1978 à Barcelone
.1,75m; 73 kg
.Droitier, revers à une main
.Classement ATP: 61ème.
.Meilleur Classement: 34 ème (juin 2001)
.Palmarès: 3 titres (Casablanca, Bucarest en 1999, Majorque en 2001)
.Sa saison 2005: finale à Costa do Saoipe, demi-finale à Buenos Aires.

That little bit of news made my day! It seems that he'll be at the USO!

Yeah but you beat me to it two times on other threads so that's ok, isn't it?

Let's share the laugh!
Here's a translation:

Gasquet returned
Richard Gasquet, who suffered from an inflammation of the right elbow, retook his racquet yesterday after a few days off. «I'm doing a lot better now.», he delighted at, not unhappy of his draw either that he qualified of «not too bad » (< at that... ). The programm of his return is very "classy". Yesterday, he hit the ball with Safin on the Louis-Armstrong court, the central bis of Flushing Meadows. Today, he "gives his cue" to Hewitt. And when Rusedski came to ask him to be his sparring-partner for a practice session, the "very demanded" Frenchman who didn't know which way to turn, had to politely decline the invitation: «Sorry but no, Greg. I'm already practising with someone...». _ F. Ra.

Pfff! Better than the bubbles anectdote, i told you! The way they put it make it sound as if they were teasing Richard so much...lol!

Oh dear. I hope he didn't say it directly like that in English.

Yeah, but i hope he's not bluffing too much and really feels at least a little bit better...Of course he can't not give it a try with a draw like that. But we're not fooled. Tendinitis does not heal in a heartbeat...

If he said, "I have someone else already" (direct translation), it sounds like he's saying that he is taken.

OK, nvm.

(I sound so pedantic! ...Sorry)
I knew i shouldn't have been so euphoric! What we feared the most, since we heard about these chronical pains in the elbow without admiting it, happened...In today's L'Equipe, Deblicker says that Richard suffers from a beginning of the famous "Tennis Elbow" (or lateral epicondylitis)! Catastrophic news! He says he can only train 1h30min a day, can't serve properly etc...So his participation at the USO is in doubt again!
In this case, players have to stop playing completely, rest their elbow and get "intensive care" so that it heals completely and doesn't become something chronical that they'll have to deal with for the rest of their life and career...
The only treatment is a complete rest of the tendons plus some injections. Sometimes for more than a year! What a blow! I hope it won't stop his progression too badly...
Infos about it there: http://www.tennis-elbow.net
I don't like what i read...

Re: ~*~ Hardcourt Season: US Open ~*~

OK from one feeling to another...(my heart won't stand it...).
Apparently he's still supposed to play. But still the alert is here...

LE COUDE DE RICHARD
– Sans se montrer particulièrement inquiet, Éric Deblicker, le coach de Richard Gasquet, attendait de voir le début de la compétition avant de se prononcer sur l’évolution de l’inflammation au coude droit qui perturbe son protégé depuis une semaine. « C’est le début d’un tennis-elbow et il faut toujours faire attention. Richard suit quotidiennementune heure et demie de soins et il ne peut toujours s’entraîner qu’une heure et demie. On verra quand les matches s’enchaîneront. Pour l’instant, les sensations de jeu sont très bonnes. Mais si ça le lance à nouveau au coude… »
