Really? I hope he has a decent draw at Cincinnati, I really do. This way he can secure a spot and have greater chances to defend his R16 points from last year.

None

This was the best match he's played so far. I'm just worried about the semis because he'll be facing a different type of opponent, Murray's less of a ball basher than Blake, Verdasco and Berdych.

I have a bad feeling that he'll lose in the first round of Cincy, citing fatigue as an excuse.

OMG, I come back and I see that Richie won against the big server and very talented TOMAS?!!! And it didn't seem very difficult. Wow, Richie is in killer mode!

I wish I could see the match... no sport +

Re: ++++++ North American Hardcourt Season 2006 ++++++

Yes... Well, actually it's not that bad but next week, he will be tired so I don't think he's gonna put a lot of efforts in this match against Robredo. So for a tired Richie, it won't be easy for sure!

(and please Richie, don't tank your match against Boredo! )

Re: ++++++ North American Hardcourt Season 2006 ++++++

Richard Finally a good match. I was following in on livescores and well done. I'll get to see his match tomorrow!! I really, really hope he can beat Andy. Allez Richard

As for Cincy, Tommy hasn't been in great form recently so let's see what happens

There are a lot of common Roger and Richard fans, thankfully.

I know! But he's got to realize how much it's important for him to be more consistent and more importantly and firstly to secure a seeding at the USO. I'm sure he wouldn't like to draw Roger or Fat Dave again in the first round.

He definitely can beat Robredo. Tommy is not in the best shape at the moment and there seemed to be a problem with his knee/leg?

Now that I've seen the draw better, it's kinda of tough. He has Robredo and possibly Malisse in R2. Malisse played one hell of a match against Roger, so that will be pretty tough. Anyway, I'm not looking past R1 for now. I'll be as cautious as you, haha.

Re: ++++++ North American Hardcourt Season 2006 ++++++

Not to look too far ahead, I think Richard can handle Robredo, though it'll be tough (as long as he isn't too tired, ahem), but if Malisse beats Mirnyi and continues the form he's had... well, that's quite scary. Malisse-Gasquet would be a lot of talent, though!

Anyway, good luck to him against Murray as well.



I am a fan of Federer, Gasquet, Baghdatis, the long-deceased Safin, Youzhny, Nalbandian, Rochus, Tsonga, the sadly-departed Santoro, and good, hearty, competitive tennis matches. The quality of my life does not rest solely on who wins these matches. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that I can live quite happily after a player I like chokes, mugs, bashes, or otherwise succumbs to a loss.
