Disappointing from Richard. Should've won it in 3 sets, and up a break in the fifth set as well. There's definitely something wrong with his mentality.

very entertaining, dramatic match.

the quality in the third and fourth sets was very good for long stretches, well played points. The standard dropped in the fifth but the drama kept going as it ebbed and flowed from one player to the other.

That was exhausting just to watch.

Youzhny was the one finding the white lines in the last three sets.

Which is somewhat ironic.

It's a first win for papa Misha ;), I think Misha's serve was pretty good today, he hit aces a couple of times in crucial moments...
btw, how many Sp's Misha wasted in the first set?

I feel sorry for Gasquet. Must hurt so much to keep on blowing these 2-0 leads, Youz today, Gonzo last year, Murray at Wimbledon in 08, must be others too. Hope he can have a good year after the unfair way he was treated last year.

Such a gutsy performance from Youzhny. He dug deeper and found a way to win when he was cramping. Don't feel bad for Gasquet either really, as he has lost these types of matches in the past, and had several chances to win this match. He isn't tough enough mentally or physically.

I just hope Richie is fine with his mentality, because it's good to see that his FH has quite major improvements (even though still lots of moonballs at times).

Now he just needs to work on improving that serve percentage and fitness. I hope this doesn't undo all the hard work done by eroding his confidence though.

Misha :yeah: Hopefully this match can give him enough confidence to go deep here.

Although it was always terrible that 2 of my favourites had to meet in R1.

the final game was make or break for youzhny, if he didn't break gasquet's serve then, there was no way he was going to last another 15 minutes on court. good win for him coming back from 2 sets down and battling through cramps. gasquet did sort of check out at that last game which was perfect for youzhny. sorry for the frenchie to lose in similar fashion 2 years in a row. I did not watch the first 3 sets but both played some very good points in the last two sets.

What a stud this Colonel. Missed most of the match. But from watching the end it looked like Gasquet was finished physically, and the match was being decided by whether Misha could hit more winners than errors. Shame they had to play each other so early.

Hope they both have a decent year. Davai Misha.

Just an awesome match, I watched the last two sets.
Gasquet should of won it in 3 or 4 or 5 at worst, but he is one of the biggest headcases in top100 at the moment. Choke of the year so far - and you know I'm a rational poster who rarely uses this word + a PHM fan :)

Talent: Gasquet >>> Youzhny
Mentality: Youzhny >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Gasquet

They were both suffering and cramping towards the end, Youzhny even more...Richie just couldn't take advantage of that and he was too defensive or scared to hit the ball hard. And with Youzhny fighting like crazy there was only one winner on the end.
Richie was 4-2 up in the fifth and even if he was 4-0, I'm quite sure he would lose this.

Tough loss for Richard but most of the comments here make it sound like Gasquet was the only player out there.

Didn't Youzhny have a factor in his winning as well? I mean the guy does have some talent. I think he should be given some credit.

Experimentee
01-19-2010, 03:21 PM
It was a great match, dramatic and high quality. I'm glad I was there and stayed till the end, even though I have to work early tomorrow.

Gasquet looked in control for the first two sets and a half, and I only started to think Misha could win when he saved two match points in the 4th set. 2nd match point was a choke from Gasquet, the first was saved by Youzhny. In the end Youzhny was the more solid player and physically and mentally stronger than Gasquet, who was really struggling at the end and looking like he had cramps. Match lasted almost 5 hours.

Voo de Mar
01-19-2010, 03:27 PM
Match lasted almost 5 hours.

Davis Cup 2007: 4 hours, 48 min. Mikhail Youzhny - Richard Gasquet 6-2, 6-3, 6-7(8), 5-7, 8-6
Aussie Open 2010: 4 hours, 53 min. Mikhail Youzhny - Richard Gasquet 6-7(9), 4-6, 7-6(2), 7-6(4), 6-4

It's a rarity to lose twice so long matches to the same player :o I know only a couple similar cases.

Actually Gasquet would've taken a perfect revenge... only if had won the fifth set today.

It's so disheartening to know that Gasquet loses most of these important matches because he can't close them out. He always has the lead and then folds. Exactly the same result as last year wasting chances and match points to players obviously not as talented as he is. Maybe he should concentrate on the THIRD set since he's gotten in this pattern lately of losing the last 3 after winning the first 2.

Dougie
01-19-2010, 07:23 PM
Aftr watching the fourth and fifth set, I have to say Youzhny totally deserved it. After they both started suffering from cramps, Richie did pretty much nothing, whereas Youzhny played nice angles and low slices, and made Gasquet use his feet even more. It was only a matter of time he won it. Paradoxically, the decisive point seemed to have been Youzhny´s netted drop shot in the first point of the last game. He lost the point, but made Gasquet run from way back to the net. Ritchie´s legs must have been burning, and it was pretty much over after that. Very smart display from the Colonel.

nothing but utter torment and distraught when I look at Gasguet play. Has the gut ever enjoyed tennis. Some major internal turmoil going on there. Its sad becuase he is probably the most talented guy on the tour and does not seem to be arrogant about it. Its really hard for me to watch him and not feel for the guy. I think he would be better off just going coachless for a while.

I am glad he is back though. Nobody moves quite like Gasguet. Reminds me of a Micheal Chang but his upper body is frozen like a statue.
