Richard has yet to win a first round match at any Slam. When will he fulfil his promise?

He is barely 18.He has time, but maybe he need a psychologist or something.

He did have to go through qualies here, and was successful in doing so. He lost to a player who is dangerous on fast surfaces. I don't think he should be ashamed of his performance here.

Maybe. He seems to do badly in tiebreaks (Paris, Queen's). Only after he lost 2 of them did he wake up and win the 3rd tiebreak 7-0. Sigh... these French...

I wouldn't call that loss bombing out??
Richard saved 2 match points...he fought until the end. The old Richard would have lost in 3 easy sets. Yes he hasn't won a 1st round match in a slam. But with these results he is bound to soon enough. Rebecca is right, he got through quallies as well and was beaten by a player who is known for his results on fast surfaces. He doesn't need a psychologist...he just needs to keep playing how he is, the results will come. In no way should he be ashamed or disapointed by yesterdays match!!!

IT's also worth noting that RIchard hasn't had much luck with draws in slams. Nalbandian at Roland Garros? Not so good.

For an inexperienced player on grass, Carlsen is one of the toughest opponents you can get. Carlsen's favourite surface, I think, is grass and he is very, very dangerous on this surface. I think Richard should be proud he even made it to five sets..

I don't think so, CCC. Richard should have won this match.
