This season's theme:

Chennai, India
2010 result: QF loss to Roddick (Brisbane)
2011 result: 2nd round loss to Phau

Jan 9
Medibank International Sydney
Sydney, Australia
2010 result: Final loss to Baghdatis
2011 result: QF loss to Troicki

Jan 17

Bonne chance en Australie, Richard.

According to http://www.rmc.fr/editorial/140874/g...me-de-janvier/ Richard still practised in the Paris region today and will go to India in the next days.

Le Français Richard Gasquet, remplaçant de la finale de la Coupe Davis, entame sa saison à Chennai en Inde pour un tournoi ATP 250 qui se disputera du 3 au 9 janvier. Le Biterrois s’est entraîné ce mardi en région parisienne et devrait rallier l’Inde dans les prochains jours. Classé 30e à l’ATP, le Français poursuivra son début de saison par le tournoi de Sydney en Australie du 9 au 15 janvier avant de participer à l’Open d’Australie, premier tournoi du Grand Chelem de l’année.

Nice.

Is this for all his tournaments in 2011 discussion or just for India and Australia?

All the best to Richie in Chennai!!

Depends how my luck holds. I might be begging someone who has proven good luck to open the AUs open thread if he loses first round in Chennai.

I would have thought he must fly in the next couple of days. It's got to be a long flight hasn't it, can't say I've ever been to India. Wawrinka mentioned on his twitter leaving tomorrow and I would imagine that is for Chennai too.

Nice. India is around 7-8 hours flight I guess, so he must be leaving soon.

Ritchiecan win Chennai, Cilic doesn't seem to be back at his best nor does Berdych. I wonder if Ritchie will forfeit from Sydney if he reaches the final

Knowing Richard he won't then he'll lose in the first round of the AO because he's tired

How do you know? Both played their last matches almost two months ago. And we don't know Richard's form either. And frankly, I'd give much more for a respectable performance at the AO than about doing well in CHennai.

Win Chennai take a week off and then making the second week of the AO would keep me happy.

Losing first round Chennai and winning the AO would make me even more happy.

When does AO seeding happen? Is it before Sydney points drop? I don't think Brisbane is in his countable tournies is it?

I don't think Richard is at his best on hard. Winning Wimbledon would make me happy!!!

So is there anyone that can pass him to make him unseeded?

Ferrero is not likely to play AO I think isn't he injured so that would make him 29th seed.
