Hee, the transition from clay to grass has been so fast I'm barely keeping notice of the matches, for once I was shocked when I saw the scoreboard with the Roger vs Richard match as I had no idea they'd be playing each other in Halle.
Very unfortunate for both, especially for Richard whom I think would have done much better in this tournament hadn't he faced Roger so early. It's good that he's still alive in the doubles tournament, hopefully he wins that. It's good preparation for defending his title in Nottingham, which will be hard judging from the Entry List, but certainly possible and for Wimbledon... hm, first we'll have to wish for a better draw.
Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, Tomas Berdych, Evgeny Korolev, Stanislas Wawrinka, Fabrice Santoro, Paul-Henri Mathieu, etc.
