maybe you're right because I haven't thought of commitment issue there.

Re: O_o_O_o_O Claycourt Season O_o_O_o_O

It sucks that he ''has'' to play at Gstaad. He's going to be really tired from Wimbledon and probably lose early and his confidence will go down.

Wimbledon Upsets:
Safin def. Djokovic 6-4, 7-6, 6-2
Schuettler def. Blake 6-3, 6-7, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4
Kudryavtseva def. Sharapova 6-2, 6-4
Tipsarevic def. Roddick 6-7, 7-5, 6-4, 7-6
Dancevic def. Nalbandian 6-4, 6-2, 6-4
Zheng def. Ivanovic 6-1, 6-4
Tanasugarn def. Jankovic 6-3, 6-2
Radwanska def. Kuznetsova 6-4, 1-6, 7-5

Maybe he's really superstitious and feel that he "has to" defend his title

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

I think he will just go into t e tourney and see what happens. From first round exit to title defense, everything is possible, I feel. Surface adaption is something which Richard normally manages rather comfortably, and he has now huge experience in sitting through rain breaks.

Yeah. RG to Halle went quite well.

That had nothing to do with surface adaption, as you know very well. Last year it was Gstaad, after Nottingham (Wimbledon was out of reach that year) and then Toronto.

BTW: First round match won against Ramirez-Hidalgo.

He's at #8 currently. He'll need a SF to pass Robredo to return to #7.

I don't think it's a big deal because if he loses early, he will play the next week for sure.
SW, be positive a little bit
I hope you're not so negative in your real life

If I remember correctly, he said he wanted to rest after Gstaad.
