Very Solid from Sam, not a natural on clay but just steady in the second and third sets, and took advantage of a Gasquet brainfart in each of those sets.

gasquet had 2 abysmal service games and gifted them to querrey each time. he lost the second set to love on serve and gave querrey the 5-4 break in the third with a double fault. apart from that, he was obviously the better player but querrey just didn't let go and took it to richard constantly. he served exceptionally well, too, so hats off to the american.

i never thought he'd have any chance vs. gasquet. on clay. in FRANCE for god's sake. hilarious.

Poor Reeshard. It's just par for the course with him, though.

I don't like any of the American players, and that includes Querrey (though I don't dislike him - I just don't care one way or the other). But I respect him for not only being willing to play on clay, but actually trying and doing well! What a concept! Take note, my fellow countrymen tennis playing pansies. Querrey should replace one of clay phobic ones in Davis Cup in September.

Watched the match.

It was all Gasgay's till 62 44 but he missed breakpoint chances, then fell to 0-40 on his serve and lost the set.

Since then Gasgay lost his head and started playing brainless ball-bashing tennis that cost him a match.

Sam played very good/brilliant tennis since the middle of 2nd set.

Kinda upset (if you consider Gasgay a top clay court player)

you're right, his game deteriorated after that 2nd set. but overall he still had mediocre service games that kept him in the match for a long time. those particular 2 games i was referring to were simply brutal though, that's why they stood out (for me). seemed like he was even afraid of hitting the ball.

Sjengster

He's no clay master, but considering his total lack of credentials on the surface Querrey was a minor revelation today - good movement, some great defence, strong consistent hitting especially when pushed out wide, and his serve saved him not just in the second set but in the third when he was 15-30 down a couple of times. There was one point he played to get to breakpoint on Gasquet's first service game of the third where he moved him all around the court and ended it with a perfect dropshot, he looked like a natural.

It does go to show that for a fastcourt player to have success on clay they need to hang onto their serve and strike once with a late break in a set, he lost a set 6-2 here and one to Moya 6-1 in the first round but managed to squeeze out the other two both times. Gasquet was guilty of being a little too passive on some of his breakpoints at 3-3 in the second, but most of them were saved by Querrey's serve, and only lack of confidence can explain his total collapse when he was broken at love to lose the set. That shake of the head he gave to Deblicker as he walked to the other side after shanking a return in the final game said it all.

No, but isn't the tournament itself technically on French soil, just over the border? I seem to remember a commentator saying that some years back. It doesn't matter anyway, his point is still valid, the vast majority of the crowd are French and so it was essentially a home match for Gasquet. Which to be honest, is probably what contributed to his defeat, judging by his reactions in the match as the crowd started to get on his back.

I found the Gasquet-Querrey match so amusing to watch. Great to see that the Querrey fairytale continues on. Although on the other hand, a Djokovic-Gasquet match would have been so much more appealing.

Wasn't impressed with Querrey at all at first, Gasquet seemed to have it all under control and had far more opportunities on the Querrey serve than the other way around. Querrey's serve was a big part of his win today in the second and third sets and that helped him hold serve and save a lot of break points.

But the most deciding factor was these two awful service games at the end of BOTH sets that cost Gasquet the match. :lol: Just couldn't believe how easily he handed it to him.

By the way, that point that Querrey played that ended with the forehand dropshot at 1-0 in the first set. :eek:

I guess stranger things have happened. haha I think he'll definitely make a big dent if he doesn't face Federer or Nadal in the early rounds. I'm impressed with his plays. I'm guessing that it's serve that does a lot of damage. I'm not that familiar with Querrey's game, so...:)

Wowser! What a great result for Sam. Sam "the bam thank you ma'am" Querrey - is queuing up for his turn on the DC team. J.B. had better watch his back.

Seriously though, I think his serve is what really got him past Richie.

Which to be honest, is probably what contributed to his defeat, judging by his reactions in the match as the crowd started to get on his back.

I was there. Richard was annoyed with himself and rightly so, not with the crowd. The crowd cheered till the end- much more than during Monfils-Federer, which was like a funeral. Some people whistled after MP, but it was not the majority.

Besides, my feeling is there are generally more Italians in the crowd than French, defintely for the first three days.

And finally for all this intelligent talk about mentality etc.
The guy had a blocked back two days ago.

I wouldn't give up on him yet. He did have a good, if unspectacular for his standards, season last year. Clay is his best surface, I think he COULD get a few wins on the clay this year.

Richie has so many fickle fans, though. When he has one of his good weeks, everyone's on his balls, but when he's struggling, like now, well, it isn't pretty. :o Not saying this because of you, but in general, his bandwagon machine is probably the biggest one when he gets a good run going.

I don't think there should be excuse this time. He played great tennis against Vliegen and first set againts Sammy today.. then he blew 7! breakpoints in second set and his game and I mean everything just fell apart. I knew he would not win this match, the second he went down 0-30 at 4-5 second set, because his expression of disgust and frustration showed it all. Richard should look in the mirror and ask himself how much he really wants it all. I get the sense his big fans, including me want him to be successful a little bit more than he does.

Frankly i don't remember many players whose level of play have dropped that much beetween their 18's and 21's.
Even guys like Chang and Hewitt got worse after 21,not before(or at least,not in term of level of play).
Hewitt for example didn't especially get worse with age,it's more the opponents who improved(especially Federer of course)

Gasquet is unique in the case his game has regressed in a period where EVERY player is supposed to improve,at least in term of level of play.

I am sure Richard of 21 will beat Richard of 18, 8 out of 10 times... BUT there are other factors that prevent Richie from doing better than he is. One is expectation and another is that other players know how he plays, so it is no surprise even for a player like Querrey.

His problems are ALL mental as evidenced by this match. He was dominating match until he got frustrated after blowing 7! breakpoints in second set. He couldn't recover and that's the problem... but that has nothing to do with his forehand or serve, etc.

Agreed about Gasquet physical conditioning, but the mental is the one that is th e most important and hardest to work on.

As for the Lone Ranger, this is the best win for an American on clay for a long time, better than Roddick ever has done. Gasquet is a top 10 player on clay, irrespective of his mental frailties and is not the over hill like some of the cats Roddick has beaten on clay.

He deserves to be rewarded for going over and putting in the effort, he did it last year, not sure how many people noticed that, he went over. Yes, he got beaten most of the time, but it looks like he has learned his lessons and for the last 2 set sets realised that he didn't need to bash the ball for the sake ot it.

Bruguera must have been teaching him his forehand dropshots.

I think Gasquet will struggle with consistency and motivation all throughout his career. He'll have some big moments along the way, no doubt, but they'll be spread out. I don't think there will ever be an entire season where everything falls into place for him. So while he probably wont ever be considered a favorite, he'll always be considered dangerous and take some big scalps along the way.

Querrey Working With Reyes

No matter what happens in Monte Carlo, Sam Querrey will be coming home for the next three weeks for an intensive training period with Andre Agassi's fitness mentor, Gil Reyes, in Las Vegas.



Querrey worked with Reyes for a week earlier this month "and just loved it,'' said his coach, Grant Doyle. "We're going to try to use him whenever we can.''



Reyes' strength and conditioning regimen was the foundation of Agassi's comeback in the late '90s and is universally credited with helping the legend stay competitive at the top level of the game until age 36.



"Aerobically, Sam is actually quite good, but he hasn't got a lot of strength,'' Doyle said. "He just stopped growing 18 months ago, so he's never been able to really work on his upper body or his legs. You're not supposed to do a lot of weight training while you're still growing.



"If he gets stronger and is able to put more oomph on his serve, the possibilities for him are endless.''

Querrey will return to Europe in mid-May to tune up for the French Open with a clay-court event in Poertschach, Austria.

-- Bonnie D. Ford

Agreed about Gasquet physical conditioning, but the mental is the one that is th e most important and hardest to work on.

I can only say that tennis really is 80% mental stability, and 20 % talent, all the players in the TOP 200 are great tennis players, some with more and some with less skills, but you can be as talented as Roger if you do not have the brains and balls for this game you will never be a great champ, and Richard isn't and that is for sure

As for Samyboy, all the best to him, an unbelivabl effort, he got rewarded for his hard work and his guts to come out and play on european clay; as they say, fortune follows the brave ones, the draw gifted him an old totally out of tennis clay king, and two headcases, nevertheless it takes some balls to beat all those tennis clowns.

I learned my homework for this week, and stopped betting against Querrey after he bashed the italian fratboy...

Well look at Nadal and Ferrer, they would dream to have some of the natural talent of some of the more artistic players. But they fight hard and got the mental strength has served them well. I called Gasquet a show pony a while ago and the name is very much still in force.

There isn't that much between the players when it comes to ball striking, but at top it's between the ears.

Last year he only beat Horna on the clay and lost everything else, but he has had a go and showed some balls and that should be rewarded.

He won't be back in Europe until Portschach, but there are plenty of clay clowns to bet against.

His press conference showed his attitude. Like a goofy young tourist.

http://www.asapsports.com/show_interview.php?id=49126

Q. When you were serving for it, were you just sort of trying to put out of your mind the fact that you were about to beat the French No. 1 on red clay in Europe?

SAM QUERREY: A little bit. I didn't think about it like that. I was more thinking about, Just make your first serve and play, 'cause when I was doing that, especially in the second and third set, I felt like I was winning, you know, 90% of the points. That's what I was really focusing on.

Q. You beat the French Open champion, the French No. 1 on clay. Have you surprised yourself?

SAM QUERREY: Yeah. I mean, when I came here, I was playing Moya on Sunday. I booked a flight home for Monday morning. Then when I won that, moved it to Tuesday morning. Won yesterday. Moved it to this morning. Then won today. Then I've got to move it to Saturday now, so...
Yeah, I'm surprising myself.

Q. Will you tell other American players to come next year here?

SAM QUERREY: Yeah, I'll tell them to come.

Q. Do you think they will?

SAM QUERREY: Probably not. I mean, Andy, James and Mardy probably won't. If there's a new group of guys that make the draw, maybe then.

Q. You only played the French Open as a junior, what was it, quarters?

SAM QUERREY: Yeah.

Q. Then last year. Are you looking forward to it after this?

SAM QUERREY: Yeah. I really enjoy playing on clay. I think it suits my game. Hopefully, you know, I can do better this year at the French than I did last year, which will be just to win one match.

Q. Is it something special to play at that particular tournament, maybe off-the-court sort of things?

SAM QUERREY: Yeah, that's a great tournament. I love Paris. I love the Champs Elysées. I really enjoyed that tournament last year. I'm excited to go back.

Q. You were at a tournament. You said there was nothing to see, so you didn't have to do any tourism.

SAM QUERREY: Yeah, Australian Open. There's stuff to see. But it's not historical stuff like Europe where you feel obligated to go see some things.

Q. At the French Open you feel obligated?

SAM QUERREY: I feel obligated to go see the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower. I've crossed it off my list now, so...

Q. You don't have to worry about it?

SAM QUERREY: No, exactly (smiling).

Q. In which way do you say clay suits your game?

SAM QUERREY: Well, my serve is my weapon. My serve still goes through the court. When I get my first serve in, it's pretty effective here. Then on my groundstrokes, I just have a little more time to set up and take a swing at the ball.

Q. Did you sense his frustration? I think there was one game where you saved seven breakpoints. Did you sense he was getting frustrated?

SAM QUERREY: Yeah, a little bit. Especially in the second set there, he kind of played a sloppy game at 4-5 to kind of give me that set. You could tell. He kind of threw his racquet down. He was a little frustrated.
It kind of continued in that third set. That second game, yeah, I had a bunch of breakpoints. I could kind of tell I was kind of getting to him.

Q. Did you get the impression he maybe underestimated you?

SAM QUERREY: A little bit. Especially, you know, after that first set 'cause he beat me in like 12 minutes (smiling).

If you know who has won the point/game/match over 5 seconds before most people well it doesn't take a genius to work out how that could be profitable...

Thanks for the info. But everyone with a satellite dish is able to watch what I am watching.
From most of the sports events there is a direct raw satellite feed which TV broadcasters are using for their broadcast. And of course there is a time difference between these feeds cause TV broadcasters are first processing it, encoding it etc etc. I was pleasantly surprised by betfair stream from MC. They are using the same raw feed and they are even quicker than TV broadcasters (for those who has fast internet access).
One way on another betting sites aren't stupid as they are using the same feeds, betting on the game is not working point or 2 before it ends and even if it is working it will give you a lag on purpose and in the end your bet won't be accepted (trust me on these :devil:)
I am not sure how that will work with bet trading software though. However, tennis is my hobby and a recreational sport now and I am not into this for money, I have a profession and a job that satisfies me.

Was watching this one closely till dozing off early in the second set - woke up later to turn the computer off and the match was still going so, even without checking the time, I suspected things were no longer going Gasquet's way. Now I come to here to see that I not only lost a chunk of vCash :o but have to honour my promise to change my avatar if Querrey won :p Thought his MC run would surely end here, so congrats to the American for claiming another scalp and proving all the doubters wrong :hatoff:

Time to switch to women's tennis, Richard.

There have been over 167 postings for this thread... Mostly bad for Gasquet, however, due to so much interest shown based on postings and viewings, I gather Gasquet and Querrey must have many fans. You guys must really care. Thank you.

That's bullshite.
How can he be a top 10 player on clay when he has never gone further than a 3rd round in the French Open?:rolleyes:

Don't be a dickhead. Agassi had a better RG record than Muster, but there is no way anyone sane would say Agassi was better on clay than Muster.

Gasquet's problems at RG are the same as Mauresmo's.

Exactly.
