No stream?

I woke up extra early cuz livescorehunter.com had his match scheduled last night - it has all the other Belgrade matches - GURRR

SO far this is one I would have liked to seen. 6-0 :yeah:! Keep it up Richie, I'm going back to sleep if it's just scoreboard watching.

well that one went by so quickly , even waking up early I missed the whole thing
but that is fine - I have a busy day anyway.
sounds like he played very well , would have liked to have seen some of that
the serve - and losing so few points on his serve - is definitely a good thing
on to the next round - good luck , Richard!!

Even if Rochus was crap (which we will never know), Richie beating anyone 6-0, 6-1 is impressive. We could always count on him having a bit of a "walkabout" as our Aussie friends would say, especially when he's well in control but apparently not today. I went back to sleep after the 6-0 set and in the back of mind had the fear that I'd log back on and see a 3 setter at best or a 3 set loss at worse - NIce surpise to see he obviously maintained his intensity for an entire 2 sets.

Seppi next. I like Seppi - another one of those players I have no idea why (he is cute and SOOO laid back) but he has pretty much nothing to beat Richie with but as always RIchie has plenty to beat himself with. Should be good clay match. Allez

During Wimbledon I will be there never fear ;)

I have the first week off and will be there at least 2 days, I'll try and send you phone updates if I'm not too busy perving on Gilles ;) (hopefully he'll be at wimby). The other days I'm sure I will be catching Richard matches. of course I will be relying on livescores as I'll be back at work when he storms his way into the second week. Should be easy enough though 3 other people at work are massive tennis fans too. So I'll try and return the favour I rely on you guys livescoring for me way too much.

I have a semi decent camera now so I'll try. No way am I asking for a picture though I don't want to mess up a picture of Richie and Gilles by having me in it. Besides I'm not the autograph, screaming shoving everyone out of the way type of fan so I prob won't get anywhere near them.

HUMM, Richie-Seppi early morning for me. Hope the livestream is working this time as I am going to wake up EXTRA early to see if I can catch another awesome performance from RIchie before I go to work. That stream better be working (and so should Richie) if I wake up at 5 am!

Sorry if I'm a bit touchy - just woke up WAAY too early to find NO stream again for the first match of the day in Belgrade and Richie loosing first set. Did I hear broken when up 40-0? As I said, Seppi doesn't have a lot to beat richie with but richie has plenty to beat himself with. Now COME ONNNN Richie.

Guess it's back to sleep again for another hour if its just scorebaord watching again :mad:. I'll be dreaming of a 3 set victory. ALLEZ Richie.

Good win! It's always nice to see him come back like that, although I wish he always won in straight sets. I checked the stream a few minutes ago and they were live in Belgrade, but Richie and Seppi looked like small ants on my screen. I could tell he was wearing the red shirt again and it looked quite windy there, but other than that not much. The camera was far, far away. On to the quarters! Good luck!

Vlad1980
05-07-2010, 12:33 PM
Although Isner is a far better player at this point, the third set of this match is simply disgusting stuff. Almost unwatchable from Richard. I think at this point, he may try to find a reason to opt out of French Open again this year. There just aren't that many players in top 100, he would have a legitimate chance in best of 5 sets right now.

GasquetFan
05-07-2010, 12:39 PM
What a truly disgusting match.. Richard "mentally weak" Gasquet vs John "can't do anything but serve" Isner. :o

That was just horrible from Richard... I thought during the first set that he would go on to win it quite easily but of course he managed to lose it. I wonder at this point whether he'll get back into the top 50? Let alone 30, 20. He is very good player and I'll always support him but I really think it is too late for it to turn around now. :sad:
Hopefully he can get his self together for the grass season otherwise its truly over in my opinion. :sad:

Loosing to errorfest Isner on clay :o

Everytime I think he may be getting it together he does one of these.

Richie :smash:

And Vlad, as remote a possibility it is that he'll do anything at FO, if he doesn't play it this year he might as well just pack his bags and move out of France.

Well, I missed the first set, which apparently was his best today. I just looked at the stats and his 1st serve % fell off badly in the 2nd and 3rd sets. I also noted that his 1st df came in the 2nd set tb, what a terrible place for it. Would have been much better at 40-0 or something. It looked to me like he was just anxious to get off the court. You can't expect to win like that. And there is NO excuse for losing to a player like Isner, whom I really do not like to watch at all. Like yesterday, his serve was off the mark in the 3rd set, like he's tired or something. I still think it's nerves more than anything. He probably thinks too much out there. You know players that are extremely talented have so many options, but they seem to play best when they just let it flow. Mary Carillo used to call it 'playing with their hair on fire'.

I'll never say never and no matter how crappy a season (or two or three) look it never really is over but I do wonder if he can ever break through that mental ceiling that just doesn't allow him to win even at the top 20-30 level.

It really is painful to watch and I can't imagine how frustrating it is for him.

05-07-2010, 01:16 PM

Why did he lose all these close matches? Lack of confidence? Lack of what? :o

Puschkin
05-07-2010, 01:41 PM
I have not seen it , and as long as I was on SB everything was fine, I had to leave when he was leading 5-4, on serve. He looked the much better player from the stats until then. How many times has he lost a match when he scored the same or even a higher number of points than his opponents in this year? 4 times, 5 times? It is so frustrating. I can understand that he was pissed in the third set.

scmom
05-07-2010, 02:56 PM
you guys are a tough crowd. I know it is frustrating to all of us when Richard loses a match we feel he should have won. I am sure no one is more frustrated than he is.
But , Isner -whether you like his style or not - is at present in the top 25 . That means he has been winning ,and winning breeds confidence. Richard is close - very , very tantalizingly close.
I just know that with the work he is putting in , and the talent that he has - he is going to break through . Have some faith , people .
Top level tennis is full of guys who would kill to make their living being in quarterfinals of events . This week Richard did just that and he gained points along the way. - next week in the challenger event at Bordeaux , he should do the same.
I did not see the match - but if as you say - he was pissed in the third set , then that is a good sign that he is not satisfied with losing or his level of play.

05-07-2010, 04:19 PM
I agree with Beth. Ranking will out! As much as we may not like it, Isner is significantly higher than Richie in the rankings so the result is no real surprise on paper. Still, it's very very frustrating that he can't find or loses his groove when his opponent is NOT playing to a level worthy of their ranking. The only way to clim up the rankings is to take advantage of opportunities like today. I didn't see the match but it doesn't sound as if Isner was really on top form today.
As for the FO, I think he will show, despite his demons, because I do think he is starting to face up to a few things since Markus has Been on board.

Thanks, Beth. I needed that. I commented too quickly after the match, so I was just disappointed, but I'm also sure not as disappointed as he is. I don't really mean anything badly about Isner. He seems like a nice North Carolina boy, someone I'm sure I would like if I met him. We would probably have a lot in common, both being southerners.
I agree quarters is a good result. I'm sure he is very close to having some great results and I do have a whole lot of faith. It will be better! On to Bordeaux!

Schu
05-07-2010, 05:33 PM
Beth, Vicki you are right that Isner, as much as we hate his "only have a serve (and an occasional other good shot)" style, he is Top 25. BUT what irkes me and probably most of this tough crowd is that no matter how high his opponent is ranked when he has just won a set 6-2 and appears to be in control he should be able to win the match when an opponent does not ever reach top form during the match. Isner aside from his serve and a few lucky drop shots was pretty bad the entire match and this was richie's match to win. But once AGAIN he just couldn't find a way to do it - even after he opened the 3rd set by breaking Isner's serve, he proceded to loose his serve the next two times.

HE is close but as they say "close only counts in horseshoes". He needs to WIN a string of close ones and then hopefully he'll be able to turn things around. He pulled out one agaisnt Seppi but that was not a TOp 25 player. I still hold out hope that he will conquer this thing in his head, learn to maintain his intensity and be a constant presence in the Top 20. I used to think of him as a Top 10 player but despite his enormous talent, I see some technical flaws which coupled with his basic mentality will not likely allow him to maintain a consistent presence in the Top 10 - he may have some stunning wins but not be able to string enough together (although I used to say that about Verdasco, so never know)

BUT I don't care where he is, I still love to watch him play (well at least most of the time).

I think you have summed it up pretty well for me, Schu. :yeah:

Oh well another day, another tournament. "This too shall pass" but in the meantime I will just keeping enjoying those small moments of absolute magical tennis that he can produce even in his bad matches, like when he hits those 2 gorgeous BH passing shots DTL in a row today.

Hopefully he'll be able to iron out some of the finishing match problems in Bordeaux. Patience, the all-encompassing word of being a Gasquet fan.

I think you summed it up really well too, Schu. Heaven knows what the answer is really. We all know he's inconsistent and a but flaky but it's so annoying that he cannot maintain that level of consistency and especially when you hear that he has barnstorming practice matches! I feel more optimistic than I have in a while though and not to harbour back to the past, but even if he does do my head in sometimes, I remind myself that I'm just glad he's back on a tennis court. That doesn't mean he's entirely forgiven though for those matches where he's lost the plot :lol:

Good results & some wins at the French Open could totally change his Season.

He should defiantly play it!

Cloudygirl
05-08-2010, 10:35 AM
I disagree with that anyway. On a good day he's up there with them and he just needs a break through. A break through on french soil might be the making of him and I don't think a defeat would kill his career any more because french expectation of him is significantly lower than it once was. I think the expectation on him doesn't go any further than him showing up these days so he has nothing to lose by playing. He has had some epic 5 set matches in the past which unfortunately have been more him losing than winning but he is well over due another win.

If Richie loses to Boggo on clay (without him being injured or something) I swear if I see him at wimbledon I'll give him a good slap talking to. Not many things that would stop me supporting him but losing to boggo would really piss me off.

Ascione can be tricky if he's playing ok. He nearly beat Safin at Bercy and I'm sure he beat Clement at Metz. Richie should be able to trash him on clay though.
