Few words from Andy :
Quote:
In a mouth watering second round encounter, Roddick will face dangerous floater Richard Gasquet.

"I don't know if you could have hand picked a tougher second round draw in this tournament,Roddick said. He's a very, very good player, especially when he's healthy. The only reason he's not seeded is because he's coming back from an injury. He played well in the summer; we came close to playing in the quarterfinals of the US Open, but it didn't quite happen. But, I have a lot of respect for Richard's game."

Is Richard healthy this week... ?

When he loses, he'll claim he was fatigued.

I'm so looking forward to hearing about the result of this match against Roddick. I hope so bad Richie'll win it!

Richie. Just for sentiment, he's not going to win, though.



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.

Vienna Report 11 October 2006

Richard defeats Falla 7-6 6-3

First match on the small court at 1.00 pm, hardly anyone there to watch it. I would have installed myself next to Eric, but I was with a friend, and exactly next to Eric, only one place was left. It would have quite embarrassing to mingle in there, when the rest of the hall was almost empty. So we sat down a little bit further away, still able to see Eric, and directly opposite the players benches.

The first set was tough, Richie could not get a hold on Falla, a leftie, and Falla used Richard's pace to make him move around. Richie placed the balls just directly at Falla, there was not much creativity on court. But credit to Falla, he did very few unforced errors. They exchanged 2 breaks each, and when the tie-break finally came, I thought that Falla had the upper-hand. But an error here and there cost him the first set. Phew!

In the second, Richard liberated himself with some beauties of BH down the line. And this little elevation of his game was good enough to increase Falla's error rate. Richie went a break up, but lost it immediately, 3 all. He got annoyed, starting to shout, though I could not understand what. Eric forced him to "calme" and he obeyed to play his best game -the 7th-, when he broke Falla again on his own merit, he stepped up his serve to hold for 5-3 and closed out with a second break.

7-6 6-3 (BTW: Puschkin's exact match prediction in PTS)

About his next opponent: I saw Roddick playing Acasuso, but apart from the serving, Roddick was not that convincing either and Acasuso was outright poor. Nevertheless, Richard will have to perform better than yesterday, in order to have a serious chance. I will be there today, but the match is on the big court and my ticket is rather high up.

What worries me, though, Richard seems to have a cold. He coughed, blew his nose in almost every change-over and fought heavily for his breath in long ralleys.

As for the doubles, Seb was the reason, but I could not find out why. I have the feeling, though, that Richard will be quite happy not to have to play doubles, either.

Thanks for the report

Good luck to Richie. I am sure you will enjoy this match.
I hope Richard will rise his level today.
As for Seb, he suffers from the shoulder and doesn't know yet if he will play Madrid.

Thanks for the report, Margareta!

Not looking good for him today then. The thing is that if Roddick's serve is on, it doesn't really matter what the rest of his game is like.

Yeah, using some angles and being less predictable certainly would help. I really hope he is more inspired today. He was so conventional yesterday. I know he can play so much better.....Anyway, the athmosphere will be better today, and maybe he can thrive on that. Allez, Richie!!!

Re: |_|_|_|_| Indoor Season 2006 |_|_|_|_|

Thanks for the reports. They're great

Richard As for his match against Andy today, I don't have good hopes going into it. The only postive is that Richard will have a lot of time off to prepare for Madrid where he gain a lot of points. I don't know what to say except good luck to both.

I love when Andy compliments Richard. I remember his quote about Richard about learning to tie his shoes at 15 while Richard is off winning his first match in MOnte Carlo.

Sorry Roddick won in 3 Sets. Richie won the first set and then he just seemed to go away
