Re: O_o_O_o_O Claycourt Season O_o_O_o_O

I'm not expecting huge results from Richard on clay (i'm more awaiting the grass season) but frankly ,considering his draw,if he can t at least make the 1/4 final in MC,then it's really really worrying

Tough opening round, but not a horrible draw. Could have been much worse. Allez Richard

Good Luck with Julien

Not a bad draw at all!
I hope he won't waste it like the other times...

He should at least reach the quarters. But I don't know why, I feel he won't do it... :rolleyes

But good luck Richie!!!

The draw looks pretty good indeed I'm kind of thinking that the 1st round match will be quite a tricky one.

Agree that the draw can't really be blamed, but we can still blame the fact that he is French

Re: O_o_O_o_O Claycourt Season O_o_O_o_O

yes he is french but MC is "his" tournament.

Perhaps it will be the start of a real story there...

It's almost like this match is worth 2 rounds. If he wins, I'm pretty sure he can get past Hrbaty/Portas

I don't know why he's playing doubles. I'm scared he will tire himself out.

Safin def. Djokovic 6-4, 7-6, 6-2
Schuettler def. Blake 6-3, 6-7, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4

he has done it plenty of times before! It's good practice and I'm sure he will make sure it doesn't affect his singles too much. He doesn't get tired at every tournament you know, just sometimes!

for the doubles! and good luck for tomorrow!

Re: O_o_O_o_O Claycourt Season O_o_O_o_O

OMG! I am so relieved.

When I started to follow the match, Verdasco was serving for the 1st set and Richard managed to win it. Then he broke back in the second and I was like "Great to see he will win it in 2 sets. Just in time for me to go back to work"... But what an horrible TB it was... And I went back to work convinced he would have lost the match.

So Congrats Richard.

Re: O_o_O_o_O Claycourt Season O_o_O_o_O

R. GASQUET/F. Verdasco

7-5, 6-7, 7-6
Interview de: RICHARD GASQUET

Q. Peux-tu tirer des enseignements de ce match?
R. Je ne sais pas si je peux tirer des enseignements. Je peux simplement dire que cela aurait été vraiment dur de perdre. A la Coupe Davis, j’ai déjà perdu 8/6, donc là, cela n’aurait pas été facile à digérer. Mais il tapait si fort qu’avec mon revers à une main, c’était difficile, j’étais derrière. Il a un des meilleurs coups droits du monde. Le match était dur, je suis content de m’être battu jusqu’au bout. C’est ce que je peux retenir. Mentalement et physiquement, c’était dur.

Q. Comment es-tu physiquement justement?
R. Je n’ai repris que vendredi, samedi (j’ai eu mal à l’orteil après la Coupe Davis). Je n’étais pas préparé pour ce tournoi. Je ne m’attendais pas à jouer trois heures aujourd’hui. J’espère pouvoir récupérer.

Q. Il a mené 2/0, 40/0, qu’as-tu pensé?
R. Il peut vraiment s’en vouloir sur ce jeu. Je n’étais pas bien, il fallait qu’il m’enfonce à ce moment là.

Q. Sur les balles de matches, tu n’aurais pas pu prendre plus d’initiatives?
R. Je n’ai pas raté, c’est lui qui jouait sur les lignes. Il peut vraiment regretter ce jeu à 2/0. C’était bien pour moi.

Q. Mais quand tu vois qu’il fait un, puis deux, puis trois coups impossibles, tu ne penses pas à tenter davantage?
R. Je ne m’attendais pas à ces coups droits dans tous les sens. Bravo à lui. Je peux tenter, mais j’ai joué long, j’ai attendu la balle courte… C’est lui qui jouait bien. Je n’attendais pas de tels coups droits. Par contre, j’ai très mal servi. C’est un très mauvais match au service. J’avais perdu le rythme. En plus, il est gaucher, les zones sont différentes. Je ne peux me reprocher que le service, pas le reste.

Q. Tu as souvent des matches longs, contre Youzni et là?
R. Oui, cinq heures, et trois heures !

Q. Tu ne peux pas prendre plus d’initiatives, tu préfères rester comme maintenant, jouer la sécurité?
R. J’essaie de jouer long et de frapper la balle plus tôt. Mais il a un coup droit exceptionnel. C’est difficile de frapper la balle au sommet du rebond.

Q. Tu as beaucoup de mal à jouer contre des joueurs blessés, apparemment? Youzni, et maintenant lui qui a mal aux abdominaux ?
R. C’est infernal !! Ils sont euphoriques !! Et ils sortent des coups impossibles !! Mais je n’avais pas le choix aujourd’hui, il fallait se battre. Il a sorti des coups exceptionnels, ce n’était pas facile.

yes the serve was horrible

if he served well he would avoid so many difficult situations
