I can't help feeling that way too. If he had won because he upped his game, it would have been easier to take, but...
Oh well. I guess Richard only has himself to blame. He really should have finished off Verdasco and Ljubo in straight sets. That together with his decision to play doubles did him in...
True, I agree. I was a little eh at Ferrero win, he started playing better, read Gasquet's play better, upped his game little by little. I'm not sure if playing doubles should ever be in his agenda anymore.
Although, I mean after that TB choke in 1st round could have seen him out of the tourney early, as well in the 3rd round. But he held his nerve. He probably could have in the end, but fatigue just set in today, and that was it.
Although the one critism I had on Ferrero's play was that, I mean everyone knew that Richie was the marathon man this year, and yet Ferrero didn't drop shot too much letting Richie hang around, instead it was Richie who drop shot more than Ferrero.
But there really isn't anything to be upset about. And there's no point to think what could have been. It could have been so much worse.
When is Hamburg?
