Hey everyone, Richard has a lot of friends on the ATP tour so what better way to recognise that then by starting a thread dedicated to all his friends. Who do you think are Richie's best friends on tour? Who are your favourites beside Richie? Feel free to post pictures, articles and videos of all your favourite ATP players and Richard's friends.

And of course, we need to have our very own tennis WAGS!!! So, here's the list of our girlies and our fellas. If I've left you out my apologies you can let us know on list (along with a picture of your proposed fella ;) ) and you can be added to the list. Thanks to Dani for keeping track btw ...

Danielle Koroleva
Eimear Simon
Marion Tsonga
Tessa Dimitrova
Mia Safina
Vicky Mathieu
Nadine Ancic
Maria Becker
Di Gulbis
Ellen Djokovic
Tori Gasquet
Jennifer Wawrinka

Wonderful idea Eim, I'm first in it seems :gulp:, I don't know how close they are, but they seem pally in this pic, so I'll go for my big Russian.

:D Eim, I like that a lot :hug:

I think I'll start with the more obvious :D

The two he has been friends with since like forever (even saying he would love to go on holidays with, even though he sees them 10 months out of 12 on tour !)

Who else :inlove:


Apart from those two who really get special love, I'd say Richie gets on well with A LOT of players, some of which he considers his friends :


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a349/Keijan/Keijan%203/0002f-1.jpg

I don't have a good pic with Marcos :tears: but they even go to football matches together, so :lol:


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a349/Keijan/Keijan%203/304549.jpg

Fabulous Fab, of course !

I know people have been saying there was tensions between Richard and Gilles, but I believe it's not true. I think they're for sure less close than Richard-Jo or Gilles-Gaël, but from what I can judge, they never said anything against each other (they've even both been pretty laudatory). And I think that what happened at last DC, with Richie being the first to embrace Gilles after the second loss, shows pretty much the bounds between them ;)

Eimear O'Mahony

I can't find any pic of them together :sad: But they played doubles not so long ago, and Wawa gets along well with all the Frenchies anyway :inlove:


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a349/Keijan/Keijan%203/rich02gn6kd3.jpg

Before ze Wimbly match everyone remembers, Richie was asked about his relationship with Mister Scotland :p it was in a French radio interview on the French site following the players in London, I have no idea if it's still available now. But basically, here is what he said, from memory :

"Murray is a very nice guy, I like him a lot, we get along very well... It's always hard to have long discussions when I have to speak English with the person, but I really like Andy. I never did it but it would be nice to go out with him sometimes, well, not going out like dating, I mean for dinner or night clubs, well you know what I mean..." Oh, Richie, we know :rolls:



http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a349/Keijan/Keijan%203/fulljgetty77834434ms003eo7.jpg

Is Rafa a friend of Richie's ? maybe not in a "let's party tonight" way, but I'd say they definitely share a lot of respect and likeness for each other :)

And of course, who can forget the Estoril final ? :lol:

Marion :hug: What FABULOUS pics hun. No-one can touch you when it comes to your selection of pics. I am :haha: laughing at Gael and Rich ... how FUNNY are they??? You're right about Gilles. I'd always wondered what the story was but my doubts were soon dispelled this DC when I saw how supportive of Gilles Richard was, much to Gael's annoyance :lol:

Eimear O'Mahony
04-04-2009, 06:30 PM
Isabelle great pics too thanks. I love them. Him and Rafa look so close there. Marion :haha: That quote about Mandy ... oh my GOD!!! :haha:

:lol: You mean the Richie/Mandy pic ? It was taken at Bercy 2007, when Richie beat Mandy and book his place for the Masters thanks to that win.

Here is the french interview :
http://www.fft.fr/wimbledon/2008/?id=3870
(click on Richie, samedi 28 juin, and pass until about 100 seconds.)

"J'ai jamais diné au resto avec lui, ou sorti avec lui, en boite ou ailleurs, je parle pas sorti..."

nope :( there is so much chocolate that isn't vegetarian. They used to be my fave followed by twix which aren't either :(

Fortunately wispas are back and they are. I love my choccie fix.

They've been slapped on so haphazardly like they couldn't be bothered (Don't know what happened there, part of my post disappeared and I had to edit it! MTF has really been acting up over the last couple of days)

Was that at Madrid Eimear? I don't remember seeing that. Sky went back to the studio to discuss the match and I remember thinking that I wanted to see the bits after the match.

Eimear O'Mahony
04-04-2009, 07:27 PM
I don't know if they're GREAT friends Tess but they've always had nice words to say about each other. Mandy's best friends on tour apparently are Stan Wawrinka and Nole

Oh Richie :lol:
I love that picture of him and Gael - make me laugh!
I like that the players, including him, are friends off the court. I imagine the tournaments would be a lot of fun, as well of hard work of course!
Hope everyone is well. :bigwave:

He made a lovely speech afterwards and in English, it was really gracious and articulate given that he was speaking in a foreign language. .

Eimear O'Mahony
04-04-2009, 07:32 PM
Yeah I loved his speech. He was funny as well. I think he said something along the lines of thanking the crowd for supporting him even though they must hate him for knocking out Nadal. That speech really made me fall in love with Gilles

Keijan

Eimear O'Mahony

I still can not see this pic, it still hurts me as the monday after. I cried the full Mediterranean sea in the horrible sunday in Ostrava, I can not remember a worst tennis moment in the last 15 months. I will never forget how much Gilles suffered in his rookie and team leader debut. thank god his friends and teammates were there to help him.

Keijan
04-04-2009, 07:47 PM
Oh Isa I'm so sorry :hug: don't cry, those sad days definitely tightened the bounds between all the French boys ;)


Once Tati was asked about who she would prefer dating between Richard and Gaël. She answered "are you crazy ? they're much too young for me !!" when they are two years older :lol:

I'm off now guys, have a fun evening :wavey:

Eimear O'Mahony
04-04-2009, 07:48 PM

04-04-2009, 08:04 PM
I heard the Tati and Richie rumours aswell and I read on a french forum tht Richie liked her but she wasn't interested, so I don't think there was a love story, (shame, because I love a good ATP/WTA romance). I hope she gets well soon and comes back to WTA, I quite like her. I think she is very bright and articulate and has a fun personality.

krn81
04-04-2009, 08:04 PM
I just went throught the pictures, really nice, the one of Gael and Richard dressed :lol: Some atp guys should hate Richard to force him to do this kind of exhibition.
And the last one, my first reaction: Where are the hairs of Gael??

Eimear O'Mahony
04-04-2009, 08:20 PM
Great pic Nat. I hadn't seen that before. Where was it taken? Vicky, that's a shame. They'd make a cute couple. I really liked her too actually so it'd be lovely to see her come back :) Anyhow guys I'm away off out with my friends for a few pints (no drinks for me though as I'm on antibiotics :( ) Talk to you later guys :wavey:

04-04-2009, 08:21 PM
I recently saw a pic of Gael when he was about 11 and he had dead short hair and the biggest glasses and OMG, he was adorable! Such a cute kid. :)
I love that Richie Red shoes pic, he is trying to pose like he is John Wayne :devil:

Eimear O'Mahony
04-04-2009, 08:23 PM

The Marat pic was 2002, so Richie must have been very baby Rich :lol:

Why are you going to miss the clay season, Tori ? That sucks :sad:
I just hope Richie will be perfectly fit and ready for Roland. It doesn't matter if he doesn't play any tournament before, he needs to rest the shoulder... coming to Roland with very few matches under his belt but a good shoulder is better than arriving after having played all the clay tournaments before and retiring in the first round because he can't move his arm :shrug:

well I really want to see it in person, I was hoping for French open fortnight off work and I wanted to go but I can't. But I always seem to miss most of it (although I expect I will get more this year as better live streams are available now) but it is my favourite time of the year but i tend to be at work for most of the matches so miss them I often don't get home until 8pm my time which isn't too bad when the matches are in completely different time zones like the US but in Europe I seem to miss all the good matches :(

I just hope he will turn up to the french this year if he can get through a couple of matches in front of his home crowd I think it would inspire him. I think he needs to play a couple of clay tournies though. I know the matches are longer but if he is working on the physical side that should be less of an issue, but with rallies and less reliance on the serve I would think he could slow his serve down a fair bit and still be ok. I also really really want Richie to have a good Wimby he is capable of great things on grass I honestly think with confidence he could take on anyone and beat them.

The shoulder is a def priority though.

Yeah I absolutely agree. I hope he can play at least in Monte Carlo, Rome and Madrid, but the shoulder is really worrying me. I'd say, if he needs a whole month for it to get better, then let's do it. There will be plently of other clay seasons, but if he misses RG another time, even if he makes the Grand Slam in 2010, France won't forgive him :lol: :hug:

Wimbledon is definitely his best option ! It's such a shame there isn't any more grass tournament. The grass season barely lasts one month, that's crazy!

But, yeah, Richard has a sever case of foot-in-mouth itis. I mean not only did he say what he said about Andy Murray (thank you once again marion for that terrific quote) but he's also on video saying 'I have lots of male friends but but I'm not gay' oh and that the Miami Dolphins was the first time he'd ever 'done' a cheerleader :haha: A thread could actually be made for all of Richie's little mishaps!!

:lol: I really want to meet Craig some day Di. I feel like I know him and you so well now even though I've never met yous :lol: (Does he say 'yous' all the time too?). But, yeah, Richard has a sever case of foot-in-mouth itis. I mean not only did he say what he said about Andy Murray (thank you once again marion for that terrific quote) but he's also on video saying 'I have lots of male friends but but I'm not gay' oh and that the Miami Dolphins was the first time he'd ever 'done' a cheerleader :haha: A thread could actually be made for all of Richie's little mishaps!!


Maybe he did do a cheerleader!

By the by guys feel free to discuss your favourite players, their results and latest news etc ... I'm sure we're all looking forward to Murray and Djokovic later on and I know I'm in a minority of 2 rooting for Murray but it's all good!!! Let's hope for a good match between the world no 3 and the world no 4. For all you Nole fans out there, I hope he plays well and isn't too affected by stomach cramps and breathing problems and can put in a performance we know he's capable of

:haha: The images in my head now Tori ... both at the same time even? :lol: Oh if only I had a picture of some male players in cheerleader outfits ... now that would just be too perfect

Andy says: "forfeits for dinner out l8r - jez in a skirt, ross in wig/make-up, miles in sleeveless/headband/fake earring. me? no forfeit. haha."

sounds like Andy and team are having a good time in Miami lolz

Eimear O'Mahony
04-05-2009, 11:08 AM
Oh did you get that from Andy's website? That's too funny! I love his relationship with Miles and co. They seem to have a friendship as well as a player/coach relationship unlike the rocky relationship he had with Brad Gilbert and it's doing wonders for his tennis. Thanks for that Tori ;)

Oh you mean the forum on his website? Oh that's cool. I must join there. I don't post on his forum here because no one EVER posts there. I mean, you might get the odd picture here and there but that's about it. It's a shame really

he is actually really decent to his fans. There are competitions on his site all the time where he gives away stuff and they do block bookings for things like Davis Cup which are often discounted.

I think Andy is a decent guy I like him more than I like his tennis actually. I think he still has a lot to prove tennis wise (and I have to tone down my posting if he plays someone like Rafa because I don't want Andy to win).

Eimear O'Mahony
04-05-2009, 11:29 AM
Marion has actually met Andy and she said he was so sweet to her. She met him in Barcelona and he stopped, posed for a picture and talked to her. He was joking with her, saying he knew she wasn't Spanish and even said a few words to her in French. If you ask her nicely she might even post the picture of her with Andy here for you :) He looks really cute in it I must say. I think Andy has a lovely off court personality. He's great with the fans, great with the kids etc. He does have a lot to prove tennis wise I agree with you there but I like his game. His shot selection at times is astounding and the way he chases balls down and smacks winners out of nowhere. Hopefully, he'll fulfill his potential and he'll do us proud!

:lol: I'll have a word with her later if she's online and see if I can't convince her to post the pic. On that note guys and gals if any of you have ever met a tennis player (male or female) and would like to share a photo and a story about your experience you're more than welcome to

the thing about Murray is that I can be very harsh with almost the all the top 20 players regarding playing style or personality but I can not find a bad word towards Murray, perhaps I dont know him too well but I like his "unhollywood" style. Again he is one of the small minority players that you can not say a bad word!

I know his on-court attitude stinks sometimes and he can be sulky and bratty and when he gets like that it makes me mad because that's not how Andy is really. People have such a bad opinion of him because of that and it's a shame it really is

Eimear O'Mahony
04-05-2009, 12:02 PM
Hey Tess :wavey: You're going for Nole obviously :lol: Good luck to him today in fairness. Would you like a couple of Nole pics to get you in the mood for the match?

Tess Gray
04-05-2009, 12:04 PM
Hola:wavey: Oh yeah definitely going for Nole:D

Nole might not be the standard "hot" but I have to say that I think he is very attractive:) I loooooove his eyes. And I also fancy his little brother Marko:D Let me see if I can find some :inlove: pics...

Eimear O'Mahony
04-05-2009, 12:07 PM
No problem Tess. Feel free to post some pics. I'll see if I can find some Nole/Andy pics together just to get us all in the mood and start the build up to the match :) And yeah, Marko is VERY cute but I think Djorde (have I got his name right) is going to be the best looking of the three

Tess Gray
04-05-2009, 12:08 PM

These two are really good friends (well ... after the AO I'm not quite so sure) so let's get behind them and hope for a good match and a nice handshake and the trophy presentation should be a good one as it always is with those two!!!

Aw that's such a cute pic Tess :awww: Gael really is the King of Cuddles! He's so affectionate with everyone. Btw is gael wearing an Adidas wristband? Surely that's not allowed? I could be wrong but that DEFINITELY looks like the Adidas logo and I wonder whether it belongs to Gilles? :devil:

04-05-2009, 12:21 PM
OMG I am SOOOOO running to that thread brb people once I stop drooling. I LOVE cute handshakes. I think Murray, Nole, Gael, Gilles and Rafa (if he likes the person) are the best for the handshakes
