That's what I think he meant too... like running on and on... along the baseline. The commentators said that it was good he wanted to resist and not give up.

WTF was that, holding only once and getting broken at every service game. He ends the year with the most pathetic loss of the season.

I found another translation for "limer" which is to rasp, but it does not make more sense to me either.

Well,Adelaide and Sydney are 2 MM tournaments so i guess he should at least skip one of them.
When i said "non MM titles",i meant the Master Series(or better,the GSs)

I know you'll tell me he made a GS 1/2 final and the TMC but in the the books, the only things which are truly remembered are the titles won.
Next year,he urgently needs to finally win a non MM title.....it would do wonders to his confidence.

GASQUET HAD A GREAT YEAR

Btw, the only funny thing about today's match :

At 2-1 in the second, I think, the commentator managed to read on Richar's lips "Je vais limer" (meaning "I am going to file"( ) refering to the baseline I think.
I don't know if that makes sense in english though.
what does "I am going to file" mean?

Have a nice rest Richie and be well-prepared for the upcoming season.
Or provided he doesn't run into Nalbandian who will not quite be in the Top 8.

Anyway hope he has learned a lot from the ups AND downs of this season and begins to realize his enormous potential in 2008.

Re: ☆★☆ Rest up for the better season Richard :) TMC thread ★☆★

I have just watched the match (without knowing the final outcome ) That hurts... And I thought their 2 first matches were accident.

Too bad to end the year with such a scoreline but Ferrer was so good. Do we know who he will face in the semies or not yet?

As for Richard, let's be positive and hope he will have a good year in 2008. I guess he clearly knows what he has to improve after such a match.
