GO RICHARD!! I think I'm with SW on this one. I don't think he'll win the match but I desperately wish he'll prove me wrong.

Okay here's my thoughtful standpoint.
When I saw his draw, it couldn't be worse or somewhat he wouldn't be going to win a SINGLE match or so.. because his record has been horrible against players who are in the same group. Then thought again, however, his H2H against top players has been a kind of disasterous as well, so basically whatever he'd got the draw, he would've been the least favourite.
At least apparently he got a luck enough to make Shanghai.. Maybe he's thinking that he's just there for enjoying his first TMC or something like that. But if he gets his head together, he should get a big ambition for this and he should be aware that this might be the best chance to make things turn around since he's going to play only top players. He showed he could hold his nerves even though he played nothing special (against Murray).
If he just lets other players win and doesn't fight at all, we won't be able to expect that the next season would be better. I think this is the big crucial moment for him and playing against Nadal would tell everything for us as fans and FOR HIMSELF.
That being said, even if he loses (very likely), he should show some fighting spirits and give them some trouble to bode his next season well. Of course if he steps on the court as a better player, he must win. And I seriously think if he wins against Nadal, it'll definitely the biggest thing not just for a huge win, but for his whole career to come.
Nonetheless his triple defeats are really likely, so if it's the case AND it looks like beatdowns, I probably won't expect too much from him with my whole heart.

He probably won't win a match but if he goes down really fighting through all 3 matches it will be huge progress. And anything else is laganiappe. I'm approaching this with the wimpy "It's not whether you win or loose but how you play the game" attitude - but hoping for much more.

Good luck, fight hard and have fun Richie!

Whether he wins or not, he is now officially "The Elite" Top 8. Who would have believed it 2 weeks ago. He has not been convincing this year, yet he has made it this far... Take this opportunity and run with it Richie. Allez!!!

I really hope he can win one match, but the chances of him going 0-3 are awfully high.

Apparently, he hit with Nadal yesterday for 45 minutes, then 30 minutes on his own and about an hour later, 30 minutes with Roddick.

And when his session with Roddick was supposed to end and Davydenko walked in, the two of them continued hitting. Davydenko and them didn't exchange any words and it was only when Davydenko started to head off did the two of them start to pack up.

Apparently they did practise together even though they are going to battle first.

Finally I am back in Shanghai now Richie, give me one more hour

Seriously, Richie comes here and feel the airs which is already enough. He is just a boy among all the players, many ppl around them said this. Nobody can change his/her mental age of course we all wish him to play his best while still not that easy.

Best support to come while against Rafa, hard to do that

Allez Richie

If he didnt qualify, I wouldnt fly back Shanghai at all (maybe he wont come next year ) it is enough for me to watch him live and try to meet up with him if he really plays very very horribly, I am sure I wont blame him and my mama will try her best to take him back our home to comfort him Enjoy

得走了, 在他上场前看看他去.
