Re: Clay Court Season 2012 - Madrid
I couldn't see the whole match but what I read and saw Richard looked good. He had a 4/2* lead in the TB but then last the next 5 points. He started the 2nd set well by breaking Ferrer but got broken straight after.
He hit some great shots when he was aggressive! It's been a good week for Gasquet, beating Melzer and Murray.
Now the question is, does he play Nice? With the organizers giving wild-cards to Monfils and Verdasco, this means Richard is now the 6th seed and won't receive a BYE into R2.
