Breakdown :

US Open: 90 pts (R32)

Allez !

Re: American summer tour 2015

Another well decorated opening post by afterglow. Dont blame me for expecting another succesful thread then!
Let's hope for a summer american title this year. Such a blasphemy he never won one (even a smaller one). Washington is a little too packed (Andy and Kei), I wonder why he doesnt give Atlanta a try.

Edit:
His best performance in respective tournament:
- Washington : SF last year
- Canada : Final (2x), last time in 2012
- Cincy: Never reached QF
- USO : SF, in 2013

Crossing finger for some miracle run in Canada!

Re: American summer tour 2015

I would like him to play Atltanta but I think it's too near from Wimbledon and then considering he was in London for another week because of Davis Cup.

He has 2 weeks off till Washington starts!!

ALLLEZ!!

Re: American summer tour 2015

OMG, Richard 6 bps not used, Muller takes his first. I hope Richard can turn this around, but he hardly ever plays well at very late matches.it is 20 past midnight after the first set.

Re: American summer tour 2015

Ouff! That was a struggle, but Muller served well when needed, the leftie serve helps in bp situations. Well done, Ricahrd for not losing patience and what crappy scheduling to finish a match at almost 2.00 am.

Re: American summer tour 2015



Richard plays Sock next. They've never met before. It could be tricky to play a young hope on his home soil without any match-up markers, hopefully he can win the match. Allez !

Gasquet ● B.Baker ● Soderling ● Wawrinka ● Federer ● Goffin ● Sijsling ● Youzhny ● Thiem ● Gulbis ● Mahut ● Brown ● F.Mayer ● Tomic

Re: American summer tour 2015

very glad that Richard did not succumb to the upset bug that took over the seeded players yesterday , and won a very tough match. The atmosphere , so late at night , was so very flat . I am sure that is discouraging to the players.
And now he has to turn around and play Sock earlier in the day . And Sock had yesterday off - I am sure Richard will be very tired. Hope he can find a way
Sock is a very young ,eager and strong young player . He has a huge topspin forehand ( some compare the spin he generates to Rafa's own excessive topspin) so this could be a very tough match up indeed.

Re: American summer tour 2015

It was the double fautes that killed him agianst Sock, twice: in that really horrible game at 4*-3 in the second set and in the breaker of the 2nd set. And he was unlucky with close calls, his were always out, Sock's were always in.

Re: American summer tour 2015

Hi guys,
Did anyone watch this match in its entirety?
I tried to but I fell asleep after the first set. Tired.
So what happened exactly in the 2nd set when Richard was leading 4-2 or something?

Exactly . I saw his matches. After a short break he was obviously a little bit rusty but no worries .
Against Sock he was so unlucky because of the scheduling. Sock had a day off, Richard had a tough 3 setter vs Muller.
As Scmom wrote, he was expected tired.
Although he should have won this match it was his hands. At the end of the second set the two df was killing, he lost his focus, there were lot of bad calles, etc. so everything went wrong.

Hopefully he isn't injured, he touched his back at the end of the third set, maybe this explains the serving problems.

But all in all, he played sometimes brilliant, needed more matches, for a well prepared US Open.

Go Richard !
