We celebrate a player who gives us the best moments in tennis. Not somebody who always keeps winning, unless you are somebody so pathetic to take refuge in someone else's achievements. Title or no title, Gasquet is the player I like to watch most, followed by Federer.

One or two years ago,i would have been happy with this win but now i just can't.....i know i will sound as a bitter but i don't care :o
He'll have to do a hell of lot better to regain my confidence on him(which has been widely lost this year)......at this stage of his career,he should be challenging for the GS and the MS titles ,not for the Mickey Mouse ones.
This said,well done to him.
The fact he "recruited" Noah will perhaps be a good thing in the mid term to him

I have not seen any of his matches, but people who did reported that he played well and most of the stats reinforce that message. Seems as if he is getting out of the US hard court slump. I am happy about that, if you prefer to stay bitter, your choice. :p

He's now #13 in the Race.

If he wins in Tokyo next week he'll be #7 in the Race.

And with the Madrid and Paris Masters approaching (not to mention he's also taking part in Vienna and Lyon) it's looking likely that he may qualify in 7th or 8th place for Shanghai.

Congrats Richie. First title of the season. :worship: He now has titles on all surfaces as someone mentioned. :) I don't care if it's MM. He's making a good start. If he win his other tournies this year he can qualify for TMC which I think is his main goal. :)

And with the Madrid and Paris Masters approaching (not to mention he's also taking part in Vienna and Lyon) it's looking likely that he may qualify in 7th or 8th place for Shanghai.

I'd be pleased to see him reach Shanghai, but that schedule is crazy! He can't play Mumbai, Tokyo, Vienna, Lyon and the two Masters surely?

edited to add Congrats for the title! A confidence booster if nothing else :)

Did I miss a thread on Gasquet recruiting Yannick Noah or having some major coaching change? Can someone clue me in on this? Is Eric Debicker still his coach? What is the change?

I don't think he's planning on playing all of them. It will depend on how he does in each tournament. I think he will only play Vienna if he loses early in Tokyo and Lyon if he loses early in Madrid. :lol:

I also want to see if she keeps looking at Carlos for encouragement until we're done. ;)

And actually, I probably would. :o :help: I would totally let her spank me with her Wilson racquet, so long as she thwacked my butt like she was hitting a cross-court backhand. :hearts: We would make our love nest out of red clay of course. :D
Do you think she'd hug him after your grand slam? ;)

scoobs
10-01-2007, 12:01 AM
Of course - he's the one who made it all possible. :sobbing: It's not on-court coaching, it's emotional support. :angel: Heck, I'd hug him too. In fact, he should join us. :D

Congratulations to Gasquet on winning the title. He was in consistently good form throughout the tournament and took no pity on Santoro in the semi-final. Great tennis from him.

I must say I was impressed by Rochus' performance in the final - it wasn't a one-sided match as I'd expected. He was tenacious, great retriever and even produced some good winners. I wondered though, why he kept playing to Gasquet's backhand.

At least he wouldn't have lost to Mahut like Haas on that tough draw.

Perhaps because Gasquet's forehand was better than his forehand in this match (he had twice more forehand winners than backhand winners in this match)?:o

and i'm still complaining about it.
He can for sure produce winners with his forehand when he tries to force it but the problem is that his forehand in transition play is way too weak(generally too short and with not enough pace.....it happened numerous times against Rochus) and that's mostly due to a poor technique there.
