Re: ~/~/~/~ Kicking Off 2006 ~/~/~/~

I guess when you don't serve well, you don't have much confidence to break either.

I've to admit that I thought this was a winnable match but I guess he still needs more time and matchplay. Looking on the bright side, he isn't defending any points so no loss there.

...it's just his second match, I mean, too bad he lost, and he couldn't play more before the AO, but he's recovering from a BIG injury which had him away for a long long time, he'll do better with time
Richard
That's true. We have to remember that he has only had 2-3 weeks to train while the other guys had more than twice that amount of time.

Re: ~/~/~/~ Kicking Off 2006 ~/~/~/~

Hmm. It's quite disappointing that he was up a break in the second set in both matches and then lost them. I guess it has to do with the serve again.

Re: ~/~/~/~ Kicking Off 2006 ~/~/~/~

Poor Poor Richie His second first round lose. At least both of his loses came to good players. I just hope he gets the rust off before the AO. Richie will get some good practice and rest so he'll go into the AO nice and fresh. I hope he's not feeling too much pressure cause he had such a great year in '05. Best wish for the AO Richie!

Ouch! His weapon was misfiring...

Re: ~/~/~/~ Kicking Off 2006 ~/~/~/~

Keep faith guys!

richard is an intelligent guy so he know that he has to work hard to recover from his injury wich didnt allow him to play for months.His automAtism have not disappear,they are still there but he has to wake up them by practising and practising especilly his serve.

Just stay positive and believe in himself thats the most important,results will come then.

Come Back Tournament: HAMBURG.

Allez!

Re: ~/~/~/~ Kicking Off 2006 ~/~/~/~

Yep, all we can do is stay positive (and him too!) Let's just hope in the next week he regains his confidence and his seve comes (as well as his other weapons)

Allez Richard

I also hope he will serve better. Allez Richard!

Btw, is there anyone who will see the match?
Ok! I start to worry now...
Richard!!! Stay far away from Paulo, please!

I hope his serve will improve and his confidence will be back soon. He deserves it.

Allez Richard!!! On est derrière toi!
