Whoa - a little harsh there. I'm sure he is crushed. The last few games he looked REALLY, REALLY pissed, as he should have been. UP 40-15 after breaking back to even the second set and hits 4 unforced forehand errors to get broken again
He and Berdych (and maybe Baggy) are fast becoming the lost hopes of the new "baby balls" generation. Meanwhile Nadal, the Joker and even the whinner, Murray are taking the "young guns/baby balls" title which KILLS me cuz I really don't like the 3 of those and really do like 2 of the 3 lost hopes.
He has had high expectations riding on him for years, seems he should be learning to deal with it. Still love him to death
but I am beginning to face the fact that Richie might not be able to break through despite his enormous talent. Still haven't given up yet but ...
Maybe he is just saving up for LYON and Paris and will make a dramatic showing in his home to capture the last spot.
