Off topic, but I saw a picture of Richie in Barcelona on the atpworldtour.com site. He needs hairstyling pointers from Seb or Arnaud, but bless him for trying :-D.

Del Potro is out of Madrid, so Richard will be 8th seed. Allez!

Decent draw for Richie IMO. He should reach QF.

Chances of him overtaking Tsonga in the rankings any time soon is now practically zero

Richard losses 5/7 6/3 4/6 against DGT.

Richard served for the 1st set and had SP but couldn't convert.

It wasn't a great match from Richard, DGT was the more aggressive player. DGT went up *2/0 up in the 3rd but Richard hit back to win 3 games and go a break up. At 3/2 Richard was 40-0 up on his service and managed to get broken.

All 3 times Richard has played DGT, he hasn't managed to play his best tennis!!

Onto Rome......

I have not seen anything, but I wonder what was wrong with his serve, only one ace in a match with a lot of games and a miserable 38% percent of the points won on first serve in the final set. That is very strange.

well disappointed in that result obviously , but on to Rome where things will be better I hope. Did not see any of it,
just as well. I woke up to find this score and seeing Stepanek and his ugly shirt on my tv. Maybe I should go back
to bed ?

good luck in Rome , Richard!

Rome is Richard's last tournament before the French Open so it's important he wins matches. If he repeats what he did in Madrid, this week he may need to ask for a WC into Nice. His performance in Monte Carlo was alright even though he reached the QF, the performance against Fogninni was not up to scratch. Richard has had some success in Rome the last couple of years reaching the SF and QF, both times beating a top 4 seed.

Allez Richard!!!

Unfortunately, at this point it seems that his level of play is the main issue.

Hope for a reaction in Rome. Allez !!

Tougher than in Madrid, but honestly, Richard hardly ever did well when he had so-called easy draws, so I don't mind.
