Hmm.. a pretty crappy match by both of them.

A pity about the loss, it was pretty close.

Good for Richie ! 2 wins in one day ! He may be tired after those long matchs... hope he will recovered quickly to play against a tough opponent : Verdasco !

Good luck Richard :)

2 wins in 1 day, not bad. Too bad they played decent in the same time only in the first couple of games in the first 2 sets. But at least the third was quite competitive. Richie couldn't keep the same level from Tsonga match, was awful on BP conversion, even worse on saving BPs, his shots did not have the same pace as earlier today, he had cramps on his right arm, but still got the job done. On the other hand Ernie missed a big opportunity to beat a tired opponent, but to be honest he hasn't moved from two years ago: he is still the same talented ball-basher with a drop-shot addiction who smacks every ball with the same pace and spin, not a slightest adaptation, variation or change of game-plan. Either his coaches sucks or he is just too stubborn to listen to them.

Did better than a couple of Top 10 players today.
And that after playing two matches.
Well done Richard!

Once and for all, I report all posts in which Richard's name is discredited (even if I agree with your line) And no this is not funny. And believe me, I don't overlook many. :p

This Gulbis is a mental mug of the highest order... how many months without going beyond second round? how long until his ranking drops so much he has to go back to playing challengers?

Gulbis's streak of 2nd round losses begins again.

Gasquet wins 2 matches in one day against 2 decent opponents, granted they are both terrible on clay, it's not too bad...

Maybe I'll report you for saying that "gay" is somehow a "discredit."

Not really. Rather poor from both, but Richard's third set attitude was quite surprising and positively so.

2nd round + Gulbis = never in doubt (even against Gasquet)

my favourite thing about the match. He clearly was bothered which makes me very happy.

Now watch Verdasco suddenly come back to life. he always seems to when playing Gasquet. Richie really needs this win. On paper he's having a decent year but he needs to make a good at a big tournament rather desperately if he's ever planning on being a contender again.

Even a piece of crap like Serra could have won this.
