Congrats Richard!!!
So nice to see him back on tv

The 2nd set was a bit stressful, Youzhny rose his game but Richie played better in the key points...Well done!
Good luck for the next round!

Re: ~*~ Hardcourt Season: Montreal ~*~

Good win Richard. For a first match on decoturf, a change of surface, without any lead-up to the tournament and after a long hollyday, against a solid player (only in the second set...) it was good.
-Strong points: His serve! (just have look at the stats! ) his kicked ball do a LOT of damage and he made a lot of aces (some of them saved him...)..., as always his backhand (the passings he made on it were "lethal", in the t-b Youzhny even falled trying to catch one of them...), the fact that he still has this ability to focus, keep his head cold to win the important points and to always get himself out of trouble, his success when he ventured to the net (good stats in that department too i think...) which he did enough.
-Concerns: didn't play "long"/deep enough (two or three meters short each time) so he has to solve that and sometimes he was just topsining shots in not trying to be creative as he usually is...( ) so Youzhny could dictate the points, his movements because he isn't ok yet with how to move on hardcourt so sometimes he was late, his forehand which he can't hit flat accelerating as he usually does because he doesn't have time since he need a "long" preparation and he's late, his concentration which he lost at one point in the first set when he could have had a double break (4 missed bp...) etc...
(be kind with me: i don't know how to speak of tennis in English...)
All in all it was a great first match!
On to the second round!
I was so anxious! It's a relief to see he pulled that off quite well and easily. I even suspect him not to have given his best.

Re: ~*~ Hardcourt Season: Montreal ~*~

Good analysis, Delsa. A few things to add. His returns were quite off today. He needs to return better against better servers like Seb or Paradorn. He attacked the net fairly often winning 18/20 points or something like that, so he should keep that up. He seemed a little bothered by the heat though.

Thanks for adding that Silverwhite! And everything seemed to be ok with his wrist too. I hope it won't be so hot during the whole tournament...

Re: ~*~ Hardcourt Season: Montreal ~*~

Nice start Richard, good luck in the next round.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
