Wow he can meet Murray in the 4th round? The 8th seed vs the 9th seed...Murray's in pretty good shape so Richie better be prepared. Or am I getting too ahead of myself? To use that old dreaded cliche: take it one round at a time.

Pretty good draw for the first rounds...
Looking forward to seeing Richard play again!

I shall worry about the Murray match if we come to it.

Lindahl won't be a problem, but i hope the qualifier who will play against Lopez will be a good one. A good moonballer or a big server would be enough.

Tsonga may do Richard a favour in the first round. I like the draw a lot.

Having Murray in 4th round is not great (although it would be even greater if Richard beats him, again ), but I worried about Lalo for the moment

Anybody knows if the AO surface is good for his serve? Lopez played well at the last USO, he usually is much better at GSs, upsets top players in the first rounds

But he is also very good to lose in the first rounds against qualifers... Don't forget he should have played against Richie in the second ound of USO 2006 bu lost to Chiudinelli .

Tsonga will take him out. If not, Richie will do it.

Is anyone else excited that Richie and Jo are in the doubles final ...... against the Bryans??

I'm not so happy he takes a plane so late before a Grand Slam.
But I am glad he plays well with Jo in view of Davis Cup.

How far is Sydney from Melbourne? It wouldn't be a long flight.. unlike the two days it took him to get from Europe to Australia.

Well... It's about 1000 KM only...
but he feel sick quite easily... so...
But you are right, it's not very important, and very much less than for coming to Sydney.

True, but he seems very relaxed and at ease with his friend on the court, and I think he needs the relaxation before having all of France's hopes on his shoulders. He'll definitely be expected to live up to his top 8 seeding here.

Richard is 3-0 in H/H to Lopez, so no reason to panic.

I wonder. If the climate and the conditions are not too different it doesn't matter. In fact, it can be even an advantage to enjoy doubles and practising with Jo, instead of being in the middle of a pre-GS-hussle. Richard and Jo could have tanked one of their doubles matches easily, if they had preferred to go to Melbourne. The fact that they did put efforts in to win (3 tie-breaks) shows to me that they wanted to go on.

well it could have been worse and no!

he should rise his level,match after match.Lopez is a good player bt richard knows how to play him.Heisnot the "typical spanish".
Murray won doha but it was not the AO surface no?
richard still in sydney,hope that he enjoy his double week and come in melbourne ready to give the best of him.
Allez richard,perhaps something to do there.

Hopefully Richard can handle the ''heavy balls'' in Melbourne.
