Kei went down a break early in each set and couldnt get it back. He had so many chances though in the second set and couldnt convert on any of them.

Easy win for Richard.

I am glad he continues to collect the victories. He needs to improve his rankings to get easier draws. His defeat against Murray was crushing mentally, this win could prove that he is already above this. His game suits grass perfectly.

The story of the match was that kei went 0/8 on break points and richard 3/5

i think kei could have pused it to 3 if he had just been able to get atleast 2 of those breaks

Still some adaptation needed to get even more aggressive, but Richard served well in tight moments.

Back on his favourite surface. Very dangerous Wimbledon floater indeed.

Good first match for RIchard. As one of the announcers said at end of match , "not often one can say that Gasquet was the more mature, solid player but he was today." - so true.

Hoping he goes far here cuz a confident Gasquet on grass is truly breathtaking.

Richy can make some damage at Wimby. It depends on the draw.

Good match from both, Gasquet was the better player by far but Kei also played well imo, despite the scoreline

Closer than the score just like at RG vs Djokovic. Kei needs to start cashing in his opportunities in these matches.

Wish I watched this match. Two very talented shotmakers. Gasquet really excels on this surface and is great to watch.

He'll be drawn against Muzza again at Wimbledon.

Take it to the bank.

So why did Eastbourn or whatever the other grass tournament is called reject Gasquet as a wild card? How can a tournament reject a 2 time champion?

because they save all their wild cards for British mugs

Richard's game is gorgeous... Nishikori has the most boring game I ever saw on the other hand.

while I fully agree with the first (what else to expect?;)) I wholeheartedly disagree with the second. There is much more boring play around than Nishokori's, think about del Potro, Söderling, Verdasco just to name a few.

I actually thought that Nishikori outplayed Richard in many of the rallies. Richard's serve got him out of trouble on more than one occasion.

Richard looked like the most confident player of the two on court yesterday. Once Nishikori regains some form and confidence, he will be an interesting player to watch. :)
