Default Richard's consistency

I love Richard because of his amazing shotmaking but even i have to admit he's very inconsistent. In yesterday's final against Roger, he played great the first set but lost the last two. In other tournaments, he could play very good then later lose to a player who is low ranking and who he should be able to beat easily. Mcenroe says it's because of his ''maturity'' and I understand that since he's only 20 and still has a lot to learn. So in your opinion, when will he get it together?

he's already a lot more mature than he was last year, and def. in 2004. he's not throwing racquets anymore, and like you said, he is only 20, so i'm saying nxt year, he'll get as mature as...

He won Nottingham, didn't even fight in Wimbledon, won Gstaad, was pathetic in Stuttgart, runner-up in Toronto, and right now he's losing to Robredo. I still think he can win, but won't be surprised if he loses. I don't know if he's okay with it, thinking he already did well enough the week before so he relaxes too much and goes to lalaland when he shouldn't, but it's definitely something to work on. I know he's facing a worthy opponent (and has faced in tournaments where he's done poorly), but it's definitely a possible match for him to win and then advance a few more rounds.

Well, I don't really think it's inconsistency. He has always been known to be a little unfit so it's not like a miracle's going to happen overnight.

Well, at least he's consistently inconsistent.

And as Silverwhite often tries to show it, there seem to have some kind of "order" in his inconsistency. LOL!

Default Re: Richard's consistency

I was referring to his stamina. He used to retire from matches often when he was younger. I think also that his exploits in Toronto took a lot out of him mentally...
