Ugh. Stupid draw. I wonder if he put himself in that spot.

the one chance he has for a good draw by doing it himself, he screws up!

Ugly draw... But it's a TMS like always... He could have picked Fed or Nadal in the 1st round...
I think Richie has a good shot at upsetting some seeded guys. Don't you think?

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

It will be very difficult, the seeded players in a tms are all in the TOP 20. And Richard always loses against top players. For sure he can play one good match, but that not means he will win it. He's french after all, very talented, but prone to mental problems when he have to win the most important points. Also his fitness his doubtful after one mouth of rest. He should be worried if he has been working hard on it, but i'm sure it's not the case for several weeks...

Anyways if he reachs the semi here in Madrid and Paris, that will be a big improvement for him. But I don't think he's ready for that, and I don't think it's his ambition. I will make like Richard, watch him for the pleasure, while waiting better...

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

Ouch. Nieminen's been playing well, Djokovic has as well - actually, let's not look past Nieminen.



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.

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

Well, he's screwed! But hey he has nothing to lose except the match and maybe some ranking. Nieminen maybe hard but I think he can win as for the other part of the draw..............

Ginepri*Ferrero*Robredo*Roddick*Serra*Murray

Safin*Becker*Benneteau*Gonzalez*Golovin

~~~Go Gilles Muller!~~~

Crap, the Madrid draw sucks really badly. I don't know what to say, but Jarkko is a really tough first round match. Let's hope he will be tired from his loss today in Stockholm.

Richard Stupid draw

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

If he doesn't improve his ranking so that he's high enough to be seeded, he's going to have to get used to these bad draws. It'll be a good test for him to see what he has to do to get better, and if he manages go quite far in the tournament it'll be so much more satisfying than if he had an easy draw in my opinion. If he wants to be a top ten player, he's going to have to get used to beating these players on a regular basis. why not start now?!

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

you've got a good point there. he has the talent to beat all of the top ten players, but executing it out is a different story. he also needs to work on his conditioning, and his little teenage mind needs some help on mental game too.
