Good patches of tennis from both players at times. Neither played bad really, minus Gasquet completely melting down when he was up 2-0 in the 2nd set tiebreak. He looked as if he mailed it in after he double faulted twice in a row. O well on to the Aussie. These 2 guys are going to give some problems to their opponents.

these types of matches are the reason i cant like richard. he had no idea what gameplan he was going to use out there. some points stepping in taking on the backhand hand, others 15 feet behind the baseline playing loppy balls. baggy was taking it on most of the match and steeped up at 2-5, as richard stepped back.

baggy thankfully used the drop shot to good effect, richard stands so far back sometimes it doesn't even have to be good.

One player kept his concentration and one didn't.
Well done Baghdatis, but also well done Gasquet.
I think both players have a good chance of reaching R4 at AO.

HAHAHA Gasquet during the presentation apologized for his english being so bad, then when Marcos got on the mic he said not to worry about it because Richard's english is sexy and he is sure the ladies love it.

WTF???

lol, variation is throwing in slices and angles, going from attack to outright defense is changing gameplan. every player has to defend at some point, but richard puts himself in the position of being dominated.

Make sure you only speak French to Marcos, Richie - otherwise it sounds like he might start humping your leg like a misguided spaniel.

Richard hasn't played 100% and that was right imo. He needs energy for the Monday's match.

This is great to see Marcos winning a new tournament. Whatever happens in the Australian Open I hope he can return in the immediate time to the top 15: He hasn`t got an easy draw for the Australian Open as he might face Ferrer in 2nd round, Hewitt in 3rd round and Federer in 4th round. Good luck Marcos!
Inspite of losing in the final it was a good week for Gasquet though. He has an acceptable draw to reach the 4th round in the Australian Open too. I think it`s time for some people to take that Gasquet is a player with excellent shots but he is mentally weak. That``s it. Maybe it`s time to stop blaming over him all the time and just enjoy what he can give.

Richard is clearly unsettled. He says he just wants to have fun on the court and plays relaxed now and that is all BS. He is tense, tight, panicky whenever there is big moment. He can't serve out a set, he can't keep the lead in tiebreak against good players (same thing happened against Roddick). He can't even start out the match without shaking and donating serve. In patches he shows why he has more game than Marcos but he is extremely fragile at this point.. perhaps even more than at any other time in the past. He seriously needs help in terms of coaching and mental side from outside of French community.

Of course it's BS, he's not going to say in the interview 'I'm going to be tense, tight and panicky on the big moments', he's human and he's going to be all those things especially coming back from a drugs ban, surely he's still getting over it and he's bound to have a little pressure on his back.

Let's see what happens in the AO. He might lose in the 2nd round form Simon or pose a threat to Federer :tape:. He's too random sometimes.
