Expected really. Gasquet seemed depleted.

To think Verdasco was Gasquet's whipping boy few years ago.
One is showing you can improve from 24 while the other is showing you can decrease from 19 :o

Gasquet trend on BPs continued from yesterday's match against Gulbis. Not being able to use his chances on crucial points and failing to save his ass when mattered. However, it was close match, a point here and there and the score would have been reversed. Bad for Richie was that his strength goes right on Nando's strength and Verdasco did a good job neutralizing it, plus pressuring the weaker FH side with inside outside FH.

Gasquet seemed depleted.
he certainly was, he could not serve properly. And if anyone wonders why Gasquet has fans, rewatch the third and seventh game of the first set.

Apparently Gasquet was serving first-second serves because of his shoulder injury

There were a lot of nice long rallies between them. They both produced quite a number of stunning shots and winners.

I'm an optimist I could see positives in that performance.

Plus nice all court tennis from both. Nice to see on clay. I really enjoyed that match.

not a good match from either one of them in terms of quality. also way too many unforced errors from both of them considering its clay.

that said, Gasclown was going down in this match. never in doubt.

fully expected stuff here.

Did you watch it when your hero was out at the same time? :p

I thought in terms of quality the first set was very good from both.

You should watch the match before making comments like that. I criticize him a lot too, but today, had he been able to serve at 100%, he really had a good chance of winning the match. Even with 135 kmh first serves, he made it competitive second set.

actually i did catch some of it. a few good rallies but average rally length was cut short by the errors from both sides.

look at the errors: 38 for Verdasco and 34 for Gasquet. this is clay.

as for the clay warrior match, i chose not to watch most of it. he is still not as sharp as he needs to be.

his serve and his return game are both relatively weak at the moment. his movement could also be a little more crisp.

FGS, clay is the surface that produces most UE in the stats. Check out the winners and it helps when you watch the match before commenting on it instead of speculating from the stats.

No, he's just looking at the stats. ;)

Obviously.

nando has reached the QF or better at all the tournaments he's played this year, and that includes the OZ Open and all 4 master 1000 played so far, not bad at all :yeah:

Pathetic effort by 'Dasco. He only won because his opponent made a lot more unforced errors. Shit tennis.

At least Verdasco is beating the players he should be this year. He needs some wins over the top players though but his improvement is good to see.

what you are telling me you were watching this match when Rafa was on.

Both players made too many mistakes. If Fernando plays like today against Nadal, he will be badly beaten, but if he plays his best tennis he will also get beaten.

Great stuff Nando. :yeah:

He's probably destined to lose to Rafa but I'm sure he'll step it up a notch and hopefully make it competitive again. :D

Spanish TV "paused" Verdasco match at 5-5 in the first to show Nadal-Sod live, then proceeded with Nando's match even if it had already ended. I watched both.

The first set was awesome stuff until skysports swiched to Nadals match, anyway good win for Nando

I did the same same. I watched both games. Nadal's match was live and Verdasco's end of the match was recorded.

What people don't know is that Gasquet played 4 hours of tennis yesterday and still gave a superior player a tough match.

Yes, he played 2 matches on Wednesday and in the second he received a treatment for his arm/shoulder.
