from www.bnpparibasmasters.org

16h10 - Grosse déception pour Richard Gasquet : il chute d'entrée face à Max Mirnyi (n°5), 7/6 (9), 7/5. Le jeune Français a pourtant obtenu deux balles de première manche et une balle de deuxième set...

Cruel verdict for Richard Gasquet : lost in his opening match to number 5 seed Max "the beast" Mirnyi 7/6(9) 7/5. The young frenchman sadly had two set points in the first set and one in the second...

(i love this site... wonderful french learning opportunity)

Richie :sad:

He really needs to learn to capitalise on those set points...he has so many...and wastes so many.

Give my greetings to Arnaud, Marine, if you'll meet him, s'il vous plait ;) ;)
Bonne chance! Allez frenchies!!!!!

I saw him in the USO doubles semifinal against Knowles and Nestor. That's the only time I've seen him play, but I decided to root for him after that :wavey:

as expected :sad: but arnaud/llodra also lost in the doubles too to the chilean ironmen...

the frenchies got wiped out pretty fast... but jo-jo and saulnier are still there :eek: for now.

I also went to bercy yesterday and it was great especially the match of Monfils, there were a very good atmosphere. I tried to take photo but it's very hard.
