Re: *+*+*+* Kicking Off 2006: Davis Cup QF *+*+*+*

and they still alive

what a match!!micka and arnaud were just so they fought like warriors especially arnaud who played 3 hours yesterday and 3 hours again today

at the end of the match, micka came to the french box to richard and seemed to motivate him for tomorrow,perhaps telling him to kick davydenko ass tomorrow.He held him strongly after speaking in his ear.You know like "its your turn boy"

guy forget said that he still believe in an égalisation" to 2-2, there's some hope for sure.Now richard has to fight with his heart to make his team to 2-2 so ALLEZ Richard!!!!!!!!COURAGE!

Come Back Tournament: HAMBURG.

Allez!

Just do your best tomorrow Richard...

Show him that you want the match more, that you're hungrier at least... (And that you're not "an ordinary player whithout any special weapon"...).

Sounded like an amazing doubles match. Glad at least Richard is going to have a chance to play again.

Allez Richard tomorrow Good Luck and fight! *fingers crossed*

This must be devastating for him. 2 five-set losses in a row...

Yeah, I am afraid so. It was the most cruel wake-up call, but I just hope it was one. Moreover, we are no fair weather fans. So, let's start anew on clay.

Re: *+*+*+* Kicking Off 2006: Davis Cup QF *+*+*+*

Tough times coming up. It'll be really difficult for him to rebound from these two losses. The lack of confidence, plus the pressure of defending that ton of points...

Re: *+*+*+* Kicking Off 2006: Davis Cup QF *+*+*+*

Another worrying thing is these two matches have brought up some weaknesses of his - his returning against big servers, his stamina and his mental toughness...

Yes. He needs to be strong. This will be a test of character...


I know we shouldn't second guess but I wonder if things would have been different on a different surface...

I don't think he lacked mental toughness in these matches...I'll say he surprised me a bit cos he came up with the goods when his back was aginst the wall. The part of his game that worried me the most was his return of serve. I don't know why he wasn't agressive on second serve returns...he just kept chipping the balls back instead of the aggressive returns, and to be quite honest his return of serve was very good last year...it was almost one of his weapons, I don't know if his trying a change of techinque but it wasn't working out for him, and I kept hoping he'll stop the chip returns. Also I noticed he made a lot of errors on his backhand side, and this made him too cautious, and he was hitting his backhhand too short cos he was afraid of errors, and this was a major hadicap as his backhand is his main weapon...this made him less agressive.

Re: *+*+*+* Kicking Off 2006: Davis Cup QF *+*+*+*

The three best matches he has played this year have all been DC matches. Some said that the Haas match was the best DC match they watched in a while and some said that the Safin match was the best match of 2006 so far.

It's obvious how much he loves DC and playing for his country. He was in horrible form coming into both ties but he fought really hard in all 3 matches. Sometimes, matches like these can affect a player's career (I have to bring up Paul-Henri "" Mathieu and the DC 2002 final ). His reaction to these two losses will be important. I just hope they don't break him.
