A little pic I took of Richou at TMS Toronto06 -- he played a great tournament; it was a pleasure to watch him!

yeah you're right,Silverwhite
in my opinion,despite the loss,his best match by far this season(above the match against Haas) has been the DC match against Safin (the true Safin ,not the one we see all the season)
that's the only match this year where i can remember him being agressive from the first to the last point.....fabulous match really.(Richard made 77 winners in this match and Marat 71.....enough said)

The good point is that he is willing to fight even with bad conditions.
Now, he has to buy himself a new pair of legs... and everything will be fine

wahhh, at least he took it to 5 sets. cramping sucks like hell.
i watched his 3rd rd. match, i love how he yells "allez!" he had some amazing points. and his backhand is so much prettier in person as is he. i've got really close up pics

It sucked to see both Marcos and Richard come back from two sets down to level it and then end up cramping in a close fifth set to lose it. But they showed great heart, kudos to them, when I thought they might fade away instead.

Hope that Richard will feel better and have a great indoor season!

Wow what an amazing match that was last night !You guys must be so proud of him!I mean I always liked Richard and thought he was talented and cute,but now I love him even more !And the crowd was so supportive for Richard!It was so amazing to see how much the crowd loved him!!!And man was he fighting so hard and then the poor thing started to get cramps that was not only bad luck but it also sucks !And thoughs match points that he saved were amazing!!Even the commentators were like what are you kidding me that was amazing.But what I thought was funny was during the match one of the commentators was saying that there was a big billboard of Richard in the middle of New York city.I think they said it was an advertisement for lacoste or something.

Had he been able to deal with the pressure, all the attention he got etc...at the start of the match and not been overwhelmed i bet he could have put up a better fight from the start...But i knew that being his well-known self, he would need to be in front of the wall to start to give it all and be agressive so that people wouldn't say he had tanked the match and above all not to have regrets...

But in the end, maybe it will be very helpful in the long term because he'll know himself better when he'll have learned all he has to learn.
I think this experience would make him a better player...It should.
