If fatigue from Mumbai gets in the way, he better hang it up. So far he has played less than 3 hours of matches all week. I know there is fatigue from travel between India and Tokyo but...

Hope he doesn't get freaked out by playing his childhood "idol" as the ATP site referred to Santoro. Must be weird to play someone you watched play Davis Cup when you were 5 yrs. old.

Keep up the awesome attitude and play and win this tourney! Hewitt is out of the way so he BETTER win this one. And then no Fed, Nadal or Djoke (?) in Toyoko -that's his too.

I know to the average player, three hours is nothing but with Richie, his fitness is still questionable that's why I'm worried. Hopefully he proves me wrong and not lose in the first rd.

Santoro is his idol? Interesting. I don't want that to affect his game like it did against Agassi.

the last time he played agassi, he was 18,I remember,it waas in the second round in the Roma MS.Now he is 21, many things happened to him, much more experience (good and bad)
he should be ready.Dont worry.He wants that finale.

edit: But I don't see him on the list, and all WCs go to the Japanese players.

He is in the main draw of Tokyo, but no [WC] before his name, I don't get it either.
It's funny because at the same time, the organizers of Metz are still wondering today in the local newspaper (Le Républicain Lorrain) if he's coming - and pretty upset at him for not even calling:

L'Open de Moselle, ce matin, après avoir hésité entre nuit et brouillard, pourrait se réveiller avec un léger mal de tête. Une tête de n°1. Celle de Gasquet, des brumes de Mumbai à l'horizon messin, il y a un vol qu'il ne fera sans doute pas. « Je n'y crois plus » avouait, hier soir, Gilles Moretton. En demi-finale asiatique, le leader français n'avait pas encore joint le directeur du tournoi. Même pas pour lui dire non. Or, il ne faut pas prendre les autres pour des imbéciles.

Agree that it is better for Richie to play Tokyo after Mumbai

Based on reason, I agree, based on emotion, I don't.

Very decent draw.

If he's playing Tokyo because it offers more points, I wonder why he played Mumbai. Tokyo and Vienna (big points there too) in consecutive weeks would have mademore sense.
