Whatever happens, it's been a good tournament. Before he ran out of steam he played very well, best I've seen him play in a long long time. I just hope he stays fit and keeps playing like this during the rest of the claycourt season

That was a very stupid overhead. And it probably cost him his legs.

Then he could slow down the pace, and serve a first serve. I just few like it's just costing him so many points.
We all know he's probably one of the best shot makers out there, but his consistency is always a question.

Was he even trying at BP for Ferrero? He stopped play........ thinking the ball was going out and when it was way in.

Re: O_o_O_o_O Claycourt Season O_o_O_o_O

This match is getting extremely frustrating for me...

I'm not sure how Richard will recover from this loss should he lose. He had 2 points to go up 5-2 and he played two extremely tight points.

Of course he will get over this one. (Rethinking his doubles ) But hej, they are still playing!

Was a tight struggle. Maybe a little lucky to hold too. But a hold nonetheless

Those 2 GPs at 7-5 4-2...

I'm happy to see that he's not giving up. Big improvement from those 6-0 final sets we're used to seeing from him.
