Olympics BMM: Benneteau/Gasquet def. Lopez/Ferrer 7-6, 6-2

Richie, you are fucking legend! After early break in the second they`ve never looked back.
I`m so happy now!

Gasquet is next №1

I must have done something terrible to offend the tennis gods. Terrible things just seem to happen constantly to players I support. All the time.

I would make such a great barometer for bookmakers. Bet against whoever I support, and you'll make plenty of money.

Alllllez!!!!!!!!!!

Great win for Richard and Benny!! If you haven't seen it, you need to watch how France won the 1st set.... Brilliant BH winner from Gasquet!!

For me and Tim Henman, Gasquet was the best player on court!! He showed that he really wanted this win because we don't normally get this from Richard. Even Henman was saying, he should show this much emotion on the singles court!!

BRONZE MEDAL!!!

Ferrer under pressure ESP had 2 set points in 1st (actually BP at 5-5) Lopez hit a retarded missed return on the first, Ferrer attempted a bizarre baseline slice smash on second
Happy for Benneteau, but gutted for the ever-choking Spanish team

Great match from both but especially Gasquet who was unstoppable today....such incredible volleys, smash and this point on the first set point !
So good for Benneteau who really deserves it.
He was so happy at the end !
Well done guys !

Unfortunatly I think Richie`s attitude had a lot with Benneteau near him. When he is alone noone can inspire him. And to do it by himself sometimes is just too much for Gasquet.

Gasquet
Finally something to cheer about for Gasquet fans. His first title(singles or doubles) in over two years. Same for Benny
The french were just too good.
The better doubles team won.
Although Great run for Lopez/Ferrer.

I'd say that whatever Julien said should stay on autoplay in Richie's head because it works for him. Considering the amount of pressure involved due to a medal on the line, he really came through.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.
