why, he already won the tournament and is a grass court specialist. He can win it agani.

Lets see, because this is only the second time he has won back to back matches this year, perhaps? And grass court specialist? Are you smoking too much grass? He may have his only title on grass, but he is clearly also very comfortable on clay, as evidenced by his clay season last year :rolleyes: Try paying attention to the tennis ok?

Richie played well...he had Bracciali stretching to the limit on shots and grunting to a new pitch :tape:

Daniele I thought had a good chance at this title, but roll on Wimbledon. I hope he gets a good draw.

Good win, Richard. I'd like to see him defending his title. I wish I could see him play on grass, but we'll have to wait until Wimbledon and then only if he's got a decent enough draw to get relatively far or he faces a big name really early (which would be a shame).

Good luck against Gilles! I like both, but please beat your countryman Richard!

beating Bracciali in straights on grass is a pretty good effort. You do get the feeling he's finally turning it around. Apart from the whole giving up at the end thing he did pretty well against Nalbandian at Roland Garros.

He played so well here last year. I get this funny feeling he may have his breakout slam at Wimbledon.

I didn't know Bracciali could get any higher-pitched :eek:

Nice win, hope his form keeps up...

He did well in two clay court events which happened to be masters series events. But aside form these 2, his record on clay has been not too good. So I stand by what I say, he is a grass court specialist.

he doesn't specialise on any surface, he sucks equally on all.

You are a moron. How can he be a grasscourt specialist when he has only ever made it past the first round of Wimbledon once, and only played it twice :retard: And as for your little bit about his record on clay, his record on every surface sucks genius. He hasn't been any more consistent on grass then he has been on clay.

But you numbskull, grasscourt tournaments are not just about Wimbledon. He has just now made it to the semis here in Nottingham which shows that he is doing k on the surface. Bracciali only played well in one or 2 grasscourt events and he is considered a grasscourt specialist.Oh and you just contradicted yourself. First you say Gasquet is terrific on clay and now you say he sucks on all surfaces. You must be good at debating. :lol: ;)

If it only takes one semi appearance to make someone a court specialist, then he is also a Claycourt Specialist. Before this tournament, he had only made it past the quarters of one, ONE, grass court tournament, while he has made it to the semis or better at 2 clay court events. If anything, this shows that he is AS good on grass as clay, thats all. The reason why Bracialli is considered a grass court specialist is because his ONLY decent results have come on grass. Gasquet has had good results on clay and grass, and even moderate results on hard. His overall win-loss record sucks right now, on EVERY surface, but that doesn't mean he hasn't posted good results. Oh and its interesting how a grass court specialist also made it to the round of 16 at the USO. By the way, what does it say about big Federer if he lost to a grasscourt specialist on clay?

I never said he is terrific on clay I said he is COMFORTABLE on clay. Learn to read, and don't put words into my mouth. I reserve that space for cock thank you.

Maybe not a grass-court specialist, but certainly not a clay-courter either as he is more often called. But winning his first tournament on grass last year was an indication for me that he has quite a potential for fast surfaces, maybe more than he seems to believe himself.

Gasquet won his 2nd title today and both titles were on grass. Grass seems to be his favourite surface. Sure he has not won many titles on this surface but remember the grass season is the shortest of them all. To me he is a grasscourt specialist. There is nothing wrong with that label, it is not an insult. On clay he has played well sometimes but he never managed to clear the final hurdle and win a title.
