Mia, I think the score against the Bryans is incorrect. I'm pretty sure it stretched to three sets with Gasquet/Tsonga saving 3 mps. :scratch:

The image files from the ATP flash based scorecard doesn't indicate the name of the players. So its confusing who's statistics we are looking at. Is there something that can be done about it?

I believe the third set is not actually a set played but a tie breaker. The best to 10 points with a winning margin of 2 points. They were 6/9 down saving 3 match points, to scramble back to 9/9, and then won another 2 points to win the match. :D

I just hope Richie grows some sense and stop playing Davis cup. It doesn't help him, I think. May be he likes being with a group of friends, but to be successful in ATP, you have to be like Murray. Dump the stupid Davis cup, Richie and concentrate on Grand Slams. Thats where you make or break your name. Davis cup is an unnatural progression for tennis towards forming team culture.

Agree, he's into the team spirit/country loyalty thing like Roddick but he needs to concentrate on his own game more. Think of the big picture Richie.

But Murray's situation was different from Gasquet's. I think Murray would've played DC if it had been tied in Europe. Besides, Gasquet didn't have to make strenuous effort over there. That being said, him falling out in Marseille early is not pertinent to DC. But I agree on your opinion whatsoever.

France always has a chance to win the Davis Cup, Great Britain hasn't. That might also explain different attitudes towards it. And I am far from a DC-lover myself. ;)

02-21-2008, 10:22 AM
You guys don't understand. DC is very very important in France. It is a goal for all the french players. Some of them started to play tennis when they saw france winning the DC in 1991 and 2001. If Richie refuse to play DC, he would be savaged by the media and the public.
I totally agree with the fact that DC can be unproductive for him but for now, i do not see him avoiding this competition.
I hope my english was correct. Sorry if i have mad some mistakes:p

Emilie I totally agree with you about this, I can't imagine what media pressure Richie would be under, it wouldn't be the best with all the distractions etc & last weeks result I wouldn't take to much into it,
I don't think we are going to see Richie at the top of his game for at least 3 years, Not many players reach the peak till mid 20's , Look at Roger, he was a slow started on the tour, didn't set the world on fire early in his career, the other end of that scale is Lleyton, set the world on fire when he burst on the scene, but now his priorities have all changed
Im sticking with Ritchie all the way, as good things will come his way, that's for certain!

I have to agree with you on this. Gasquet doesn't need another diversion in the form of French press hounding for not playing in Davis Cup. I just don't understand why France gets so worked up about Davis Cup. Tennis is an individual sport and there lies its greatness. Not in the togetherness that davis cup teams portray. In some ways I just can't stand players celebrating Davis cup victories.

It's impressive to watch this Murray guy coolly refusing to play. Nadal too. Djokovic just was present and played to lose, didn't really care as much as he does for Grand Slams. And here is Richard emotionally attached to a pointless tournament. :mad:

emilie
02-21-2008, 03:15 PM
This is part of the education richard received. he has always liked team sports like rugby and football. I think that he is a very generous personn and love friendship as he is an only child.
Moreover this is about french culture. We are not very good as individual, individualist people and strong character are not very weel appreciated in france.(maybe that is the reason why we do not have big champions in tennis).
This is a bit complicated to understand from foreigners.
I would add that this is a big big problem for Richard and he knows that: He often want to please people when he plays. The good example is Roland Garros: he always put a lot of pressure on himself as he want to please the public.(this is the reason why he lost last year)
Richard and psychology..i'd write a book about it:rolleyes:
I like his personality though, he is very honest and generous

emilie
02-21-2008, 03:25 PM
I want to add something about this. I think that for some players, DC brings emotion you cannot find in an individual victory. You share something with a group of friends and it is an incredible and strong emotion. I played basket ball so i know this sensation.
DC is exciting to watch, i think.

Yes.. Too bad Davis Cup doesn't give any points for the rankings. I think they are trying to do something about it for the coming years.
Anyway, Emilie is right. Most of the people in France don't know what a master serie is.. Here , people first cares about Roland Garros and then the Davis Cup (which are the only two tennis events broadcast on public channels).
In the history of french tennis, DC means a lot because of the "mousquetaires".
And I really don't know many french players who have refused a selection in the team. The only one I can think of is Grosjean and people has been very harsh with him after that. (and I don't only mean the media)

The joys of the tennis world & the duties of Davis Cup & going onto court for your country,
Here in Australia we had a bit of hassles in our Davis Cup & tension amoungst the ranks,
I'm sure you all recall the Rafter/Philipoussis saga & the rest of the Australian players towards Philipoussis & the coaching staff of Newcombe/Roach & the public spat after the US final between the camps, even though Philippousis did return to play Davis Cup again, It always hung over him in a way
Im sure if Philipoussis had his time over again he would have chosen his decision a bit different!

Just some country's are more passionate about the Davis Cup & all it brings to the game!

emilie
02-21-2008, 11:05 PM
No i do not recall this story about philippoussis. What happened?

gasguet#1
02-21-2008, 11:32 PM
Philipoussis pulled out of a Davis Cup tie after the Australian Open & got the rest of the Aussies off side, he went to watch which added more fuel to the fire & Rafter was very vocal in his thoughts on him, if I can recall it was a tie played in rural victoria at Mildura against Zimbabwe
When MP & PR played in the US final more tension brewed as Tony Roach who wasn't coaching Rafter was sitting in Rafters box during the match & it led to a big spat later that evening with John Newcombe & Tony Roach who were celebrating with Rafter, philipoussis felt they showed there loyality to Rafter & not him, So that started the no love loss affair between Rafter & Philipoussis! & then it brewed over to him & John Newcombe & Tony Roach, more John Newcombe, & comments in the press by Philipoussis father & Newcombe think they kissed & made up in a sort of way, but dont think there is any love loss between the camps!
Think I have got it right, If Im wrong dont quote me on this as fact, just what you read & see in the media!
If I have any bits wrong maybe another Aussie may be able to fill in the gaps for me

Pioline also refused to play for a long time. His first match was in 1/4 in 1994 when he was already French number 1 for more than one year. But then he became totally devoted to DC and won it twice.

Given the opportunity to play for your country is a passion of many professional sports people world wide, the emotion of it all, the atmosphere, the history, It's something you dont get week in week out, & thats why some players are so passionate about playing the Davis Cup. They would do anything to be given the honour of going into battle for your country!

I don't think Ritchie would have a mean streak in him, & wouldn't like him to change at all.....
If Richie did as you like, It wouldn't be the same Richie that we adore, We know he has the talent, the passion, etc

As I have said before, I can see he is going to be one of these players that takes longer to get to the level of his game where he is in the business end of things most weeks! It will happen in good time,

I can't see him saying I'm over playing for France, & going to leave you guys to it!

Hoping to get some time off over wimby but can't book tickets as have no idea what leave I can have off yet in my new job.

Me and my friend are going to try R.G as somebody we know who goes every year says you can just turn up and get tickets quite easily in the first week. I'm not so sure what this year will be like though? French people may be more inclined to go now they have so many good players.

Me and my friend are going to try R.G as somebody we know who goes every year says you can just turn up and get tickets quite easily in the first week. I'm not so sure what this year will be like though? French people may be more inclined to go now they have so many good players.

I also heard RG is a lot easier to get tickets too.
