Great, we'll enjoy one more set of beautiful tennis!

It's deserved. Ritchie is so bad that he didn't deserve to win that set. I know Gilles doesn't deserve it either since he was even worse, but never mind.

Yes, the first set Gilles Simon ever wins against Richard Gasquet, let's celebrate.

Are you starting to watch now, brego? Please don't move away from your computer, you seem to be Gilles' lucky charm.
You didn't miss much.

I'm his jinx, apparently I'll stick with Muzza - he seems immune to me so far.

Muzza is on my TV too and a tad better than our two Frenchies!

Grrrr, I closed the stream by mistake and now it isn't working anymore. It was working well. Poor quality, but it was working smoothly.

Gilles already hit 4 aces?! I missed all of them.

My stream is back.

Sadly, I think this beautiful match won't last long anymore after Ritchie's amazing rebreak.

It's unbelievable to be as bad at the net as Gilles. And that's his usual level. He's clearly underperforming on serve, but not at the net, he really can't volley at all, even in training.

Never a good idea to come to the net on BP, Gilles.

Poor Gilles.

Well I'm glad for Gasquet. He needed the win more then Gilles.
At least Gilles took a set off of him.

Default Re: Grass Season 2008

Well, it's not a major disappointment since he can't go far on grass without a decent netgame anyway, I know that. I was expecting him to lose.

But I can't be happy about that one set won since it was a non-match from him during 2 sets. And there was room for more with Richie playing so poorly.
I'm really glad he kept fighting in the 3rd set, though. It's not a given with him when he's putting on a bad performance, we've seen him completely go down with an embarrassing scoreline in that situation.

http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/breves2...tions_Dev.html
"I was nervous at the beginning, tense. The match became more even when I broke back at 5-1 in the 1st set. It was a match with many chances and way too many regrets... I lost the 2nd set 6-3 after having broken twice... it's not acceptable. A couple of silly mistakes cost me the match in the end. There are some encouraging things, but what remain are the regrets because I have the feeling I could have done much better. The problem with Richard isn't that he returns very, very well, it's that he returns all the time. There are no free points with him."

Ritchie's statements are funny, full of praise after such a match. He means Gilles makes the opponent play poorly, which is true in general, but I don't think it was the only point today!

And in his audio interview, he says he was nervous, but not because of Richard. He has played 4 Frenchies in a row in Casa and he's starting to get used to it. It was more the importance of the event, a new court, he was trying to find his bearings.
He doesn't think he got tight in the games when Richard broke back, it was more a question of concentration lapses and silly mistakes in his opinion.
