Interesting fact: Ancic and Gasquet have won titles in the same week 3 times - 1) Rosmalen 05 and Nottingham 05, 2) Rosmalen 06 and Nottingham 06, 3) St Petersburg 06 and Lyon 06. :lol:

well done Richie :)

you deserved it after the week you had(good wins against Safin and Soderling)
whatever the results you'll get in the future,i hope now you'll continue to play agressively ......or else i will be there to criticize you!!:devil:

i now dream you'll make the final of Bercy and perhaps face Roger in a dream final :)

Well done! Congrats on your 4th title, Richard! It was a great week for him, win on home soil against a compatriot and beating two nemesis-in-the making in Safin and Clement was really good. Please carry this good form onto Paris and make some noise there, not losing in R2! :p

It's been a good week for Gicquel though. Now that he's in the Top 50, hopefully he'll continue rising. :yeah:

nope i always was a fan but those last weeks he really frustrated me a lot with his defensive play ...... i was very angry with him
this week it was better though,especially against Safin in the first set

If he's not tired and play this level next week i don't see how Nadal could defeat him.

Nadal will probably have to beat Safin first :o

Gasquet was too hot for Gicquel who played well, but not nearly good enough to trouble Richard.

Oh that's weird ^^
But hey, that's awesome for both of them :D

:banana: Richie, well done for this season. After all, you did pretty good. :)

( :lol: Ronan, that was my first thought, i got scared for Bercy, but let's just trust him ^^)

OK let's sum up Richie21 support of the week! Sorry for the witchhunt but it's quite funny. :D

Against Safin

Safin has a serve,Gasquet not....that will be the difference in this match:o



with the serve he has,he'll never win Wimbledon :o
i'd be very surprised if he made the 1/4 final once,let alone win the whole thing....


Against Norman

i'm seeing the match.....and there is one thing i forgot to add about Gasquet: he clearly lacks power.


Against Soderling !

he played really badly tonight,he was in defensive mode again :o

i think Soderling will beat him...and probably easily if he plays as well as he played against Fed last week



Richie will obviously lose now
not a surprise,that's what i predicted.



Against Clement :


i guess it will be another predictable loss against Clement .....wouldn t be surprised if he were immediately broken :o



Clement is clearly a superior player to Gasquet,that's the harsh reality :o



Man, Clement looks a class above the baby-Fed for the moment.......:o

Gasquet has scored only 4 pts in Clement's serve....and we all know Clement is a big server :rolleyes:

Allez Richard. He's slowly starting to rise, I like that. Defeating Safin, Soderling, and Clement in one week is quite impressive. Hoping the good fortune continues in Paris.

Gasquet exclusive quotes just added - he is lookng forward to a re-match with Gicquel in Bercy on wednesday. Perhaps secretly he sees that as a double bye.

I've been consistently pessimistic whereas you have swung from overrating him to the other extreme and now back again. :scratch:

Congrats Gasquet!

Here we have a great all around player.

I still insist that is Richie plays like he did in Monte Carlo 2005, he would be top 3, he was that impressive in that tournie.

Forget top 3, Gasquet's Monte Carlo 2005 form was so insane that was well worthy of #1 status.:worship:

He had been incredibly good against Nadal (his best match in Monte carlo IMO). And he lost. 2 French open later, we know why.

i'm a great fan of Richie believe me ;)
that's precisely because i'm a great fan of him that i reacted so harshly after his recent defeats.....i was really sad to see him not playing agressively enough and sometimes ,the words have gone past my mind,yeah i admit.

Ooh I see. You feel he could have been doing better. I'll admit, it is hard being a Gasquet fan since his wins aren't quite as consistant as we hope they could be, and I have to say I did not think Richie would take this title. Although instead of voicing my opinion about it I just cheered him on, which is different from what you did. I suppose you were just saying what was on your mind, which is okay :) Even though it wouldn't hurt to cheer him on once in a while! :D
