Default Richie's new season - Doha + Aussie Summer 2013

Hi everybody, is there any Gasquetaire left here?

Richie will start 2013 in Doha with a match vs a qualifier. Then he takes the winner of Fognini/Zemla.

I'm looking forward to see if his level of play is good at the moment.

ALLEZ RICHIE!!!

I have a question: if his ranking doesn't move in the next 2 weeks, will Richard get his highest seed number in a GS at AO 2013?

Allez Richard!!

Not a bad draw in Qatar, Richard opens up against a Qualifier.

All the best and Qatar is being televised for the whole week in London!!

Richard's highest seeding was 8th at the 2008 Australian Open.

Gasquet has a good chance to make the finals here. It's too bad there's no way for him to bump up from 9th seed to 8th seed at the Aussie Open. Quarter-finals anyone?

Richard wins 6-3 6-4 against Hernych. 28 winners versus 15 UEs, but poor serving.

Richie comes back from a set down to win against Zemlja. Not a match that should have gone to three, but good to see Richie made a come back.

A hard fought battle against a good opponent. Well done Richard for hanging in.

6-1 6-3 against LAcko. I could not watch the match and I really don't know what to make from this. On GM they repeat the usual stuff about camping behind the baseline while friends who pmed me about the match report exactly the opposite: an unusual number of errors because he bashed on everything as fast as he could, notably in the second set. L'Equipe mentions beautiful BH winners, elsewhere I could read that the first BH winner came on match point. I really wonder if all those people watched the same match.

So it is back to statistics and they show the best serve numbers in Doha so far. Good luck against Brands.

Richie in the final!!

It's weird being a Gasquet's fan these days, after following Richie for so the many years, him being now the player who wins matches relying on experience, breaking at the good times, making comebacks...

Tsonga and Gasquet pulled out of Sydney. Gasquet I assume is just so he won't have to play 2 full tournaments before the Aussie Open. As bad as it sounds, I hope Tsonga's is something that may take him out of Aussie so Gasquet will get a top 8 seed.

Fabulous, first ATP title winner 2013. What a way to start the year!
Just amazed at how Richard has been able to bounce back when defeat is almost inevitable.
Well done Richie!! (and Piatti)... quite inspirational.

Richard wins the title! I think this was the most impressive win from him so far, given this is a major tune up for a major. Beating a tough player like Davydenko (who just destroyed Ferrer in semis) should give him a lot of confidence, especially after he was down a set and a break and couple breakpoints. I watched 3 of his matches and although he did not play as aggressive as he did in the fall indoors, he fought just as much. I would like him to be a bit more aggressive with forehand and stay closer to baseline, but win is a win and it is a great start to the year! Hope he keeps it up at AO.

Also, he was tied with Almagro for 10th position in the rankings. What a way to solidify his top 10 status!

This will come with the confidence of winning. This is why this title was so important.

Well done Richard and what a fighting spirit throughout the week.

What a week : 8th title, #300 wins

It's so great to see him win with this fighting spirit.

Let's hope this give him more confidence.
I also would like him to be more agressive, especially in the important points, on match point that was on a 2nd serve from Davy he did a step back although he usually makes a step forward to reach the baseline on second serves nowadays. He needs to take things in control on decisive points.

But let's focus on the positive right now. He showed plenty of heart right there. Also good defense.
