Congrats! This is a great win for Gasquet; to beat a guy like Mirnyi on grass, and so easily to. He should be very confident heading into Wimbledon.

:woohoo:

Congrats and happy birthday, Gasquet!

I seriously expected a tougher match as I considered Mirnyi the favourite for this match. I'm happy Richard won! Good luck in Wimbledon! :yeah:

And as Lady said, the first out of many many to come!

I wouldent call him a claycourter. He seems to have the game to succeed on all surfaces.

Great win for him, very well done. Two weeks ago he'd never won a grass match and now he's won his first title, on grass. Excellent stuff. I'm wondering how he'll do at Wimbledon, he must be confident going in there.

On a side note, looks like it's really birthday mania on the ATP Tour this year. People beating Fed on their birthday and now also winning first titles on their birthday as well. Watch out for A-Rod at the US Open!!!!

Well done Richard! :yeah: Joyeux Anniversaire! :bounce:
Good luck for Wimbledon to both players.
And Max: you're such a nice guy! Very fair-play... :hug:
I hope Gasquet won't party too much...Wimbledon is next...

I know. :o Wimbledon will be a different test for him. The courts are faster than those at Nottingham, so we'll see how he adapts. :)

And I really don't like it. Well, watch out for Fedex in Montreal and for Guga at the US Open, that'll work for me :p

Actually the courts at Wimbledon have been slowed down. The grass used there is rye-grass and it slows the game of serve-volleyers. Henman complained that at French Open and said that with the changes at Wimbledon he would probably do better at French Open than at Wimbledon :lol:

Go Gasq!
What a year he's having, hey? Hard to believe people were saying he was washed up before he'd even begun! And now since April he's made MC SF, Ham F, Atp tourament champion! Oh and 3r of GS, not bad Richy!
And not only is he talented but he's handsome too!

The bad thing for france is that clay will probably be Gasquets worst surface :lol:

Congrats to Richard though, he totally outplayed Max. He is really entertaining to watch on grass and should be good to see him at Wimbledon.

How nice it is that Richard's first ever title came on grass!

So apparently grass isn't only for the boring guys with the booming serve, but also for the crafty players with great hands and beautiful single-handed backhands, so much for the grass-haters.

Kohlschreiber in first round will be tough, I don't like that, especially with the Nottingham curse.

Nah, i don't think so. Fed just has too much experience on grass and feels very comfortable in it.

The hard court season could be very interesting this year.

great work dispatching yet another grass court specialist

I don't want to put pressure on Richie to go deep into Wimby but i'll be happy if he simply beats Rafa.

Grass seems to suit him
