Solid performance from Richie. The line calling was so bad Adrian (who is normally a nice bloke) refused to shake the umpire's hand at the end of the match.

WOW.. strong from Gasquet. He is doing well this year, just as I predicted last year. Beating Mannarino in straights just shows that he is playing well! :)

Well done Gasquet. Flying under the radar. Hmm, Berdych next, not sure how that will go.

:eek: Have you seen the match? I am a huge fan of Richard, but I can make a difference between a strong and an average performance. Today was average at best. The only thing Richard did really well, was the serve, particularly in the second set where he was able to confirm the rule that the better server will win the breaker.

Mannarino is a very poor volleyer.

Nice showing from Richard today, never in doubt. Keep going!

Mannarino is a very poor volleyer.

You're not suggesting that is the reason he lost the match I hope. There are very few good volleyers out there and quite frankly that is not his game. He played well but Gasquet was just too good. It was an above average performance for Gasquet these days :)

No, it was just an observation.

Let us agree to disagree on this.

Gasquet leads 2-1 vs Berdych. I know, it was in another life, but if he did it he can do it again. At least he won in 3 and he's not too tired.
US Open, 4th round, Australian 3rd, Ritchie starts to play good level in Grand Slams, that's a good sign. He could grab some spot at Indian Wells and Miami.

Is court 8 a televised court? :confused: It's one of the smallest on the grounds with only seats on one side. What are the other televised courts then?

The line calls in that 3 set were just :rolleyes: wtf...

I think the lines people on that court need to get their eyes checked.

I hope he doesn't decide to play 10 feet behind the baseline against Berdych...

It will be very short and painful if he commits this mistake.
