more to add to ur site liz

translated from sports.fr

Gasquet (finally)

20/02/2004
Par FREDERIC WARINGUEZ
De Sports.fr

Gasquet has finally started to prove his critics wrong. The French boy has qualified for the Buenos Aires semi finals after a very intense match against
Nicolas Massu which he finally won 6-3, 4-6, 7-5. For the first time in his young career, he has won three consequetive matches in an ATP tournament. In the semis, he will play Guillermo Coria, the number one seed.

The victory was a huge relief.

Yes, Richard Gasquet knows how to play tennis.
Yes, Richard Gasquet knows how to fight out of difficult situations.

Richard is going to remember this tournament for a long time to come. Most of the players competing here are Spanish or South American. And then there's this young French boy who no one has expecting much from. The same boy who didnt know what to think after his performance at the Australian Open and after his pathetic separation from Tarik Benhabilès, whom the Federation forced him to collaborate with.

Accompanied by his father, Gasquet is far from France and from eager journalists following his every move. AFter Vina del Mar in Chile, where he lost first round but was able to steal a set before going down to Gaudio, the Gasquet is doing well in Buenos Aires.

He has already played a huge tournament here and for the first time in his career has won three consequetive matches in tournaments 'which actually count'. He's in the semis and will have to play another prodigy, Guillermo Coria. But that's a whole other story.

The 'Biterrois' knows how to savour victories. After beating Spaniard Verdasco and Argentine Calleri, two clay courters, he has caused another upset beating Nicolas Massu. A player who had a big 2003 winning 2 tournament and reached 3 finals- one of which was in the TMS Madrid tournament and helped him finish 18th in the world.

It was an agressive and courageous Gasquet who came onto the court. He dominated the start of the match and won the first set quite easily 6-3. He started the second set in the same manner but the Chilian fought back to win the set 6-4. It seemed that Richard had lost all the momentum and was unable to fight back; he was disapointed with losing the second set. Massu took the early advantage in the third set to lead 4-2. But Gasquet did not give up.

It was his way of responding to his critics who have been on his back for the last few weeks. Gasquet found the courage to break back and to level the third set. He was back in the match. With an intensity that he usually lacks, he broke to avoid taking the match into a final set tie break. He has promised this for a long time. This match was something to savour and remember. Maybe this will be the break through tournament. The one he has been promising for a long time.

Default Re: ~*Musketeer-to-be*~Richard Gasquet

what do these journalists know? i've personally seen richard fought hard and won, more than once, some 3-set matches. though they were qualifiers, not main draw. his problem may be that he isn't very consistent.

the fact that he is so far away from the rest of the tennis world may have helped.

well but it will be GUILLE next.... so which side are we on ??

Default Re: ~*Musketeer-to-be*~Richard Gasquet

theres these but they are all the same:

FFT:
ATP-WTA Tour
L'exploit de Gasquet
(21/02 - 10h10) - Le mot n'est pas trop fort : c'est un petit exploit qu'a réussi Richard Gasquet à Buenos Aires. Le Français a éliminé le 14e mondial, le Chilien Nicolas Massu, pour se hisser en demi-finale, après avoir battu un autre spécialiste de la terre battue, l'Argentin Agustin Calleri. A Marseille, les qualifications de l'Open 13 ont débuté avec un niveau très relevé et de nombreux Français.

Nul doute que ce tournoi de Buenos Aires va marquer un nouveau départ dans la carrière de Richard Gasquet. Non seulement, pour la première fois de sa jeune carrière, il va disputer les demi-finales d'un tournoi du grand circuit, mais pour y parvenir, le jeune prodige de 17 ans et demi a terrassé deux grands joueurs de terre battue, Agustin Calleri et Nicolas Massu.

"Ce qui m'arrive est agréable, a déclaré Richard, vainqueur 6/4, 3/6, 7/5 de Massu, tête de série n°3. C'est fabuleux de battre un joueur comme ça, au terme d'une grosse bagarre. J'ai eu pas mal de soucis ces derniers temps avec mon jeu, c'est donc d'autant plus savoureux. Je me sens bien ici, le public semble m'apprécier, je joue des supers matches face à des supers joueurs."

Benneteau dans le dernier carré


Depuis sa séparation avec Tarik Benhabiles, Richard est coaché par son père, Francis, qui l'a formé. "Je me sens très bien avec lui, et je ne vois aucune raison de changer ma structure de travail", a précisé le héros français de la semaine.

En demi-finales, la tâche de Gasquet sera encore plus rude. C'est tout simplement la tête de série n°1, l'Argentin Guillermo Coria, n°5 mondial, qui se dresse sur sa route. En pleine confiance, mais fatigué par des matches accrochés, le Français devra sûrement débuté la rencontre à cent à l'heure.

sport 24:
Inédit Gasquet
Considéré comme le grand espoir français, Richard Gasquet a enfin confirmé les espérances placées en lui en atteignant les demi-finales à Buenos Aires. Pour la première fois de sa jeune carrière, le Biterrois rejoint le dernier carré d’un tournoi ATP.
par Jonathan Murciano



Panoramic

Une confirmation attendue
Jeune phénomène du tennis français, amené au rang d’espoir attendu, Richard Gasquet s’est brûlé les ailes lors de ses premiers pas sur le circuit ATP. La saison dernière, il a accumulé les défaites au premier tour et n’avait glané que deux victoires. Après avoir travaillé un temps avec Tarik Benhabiles, le prodige tricolore est de nouveau sous la tutelle de son père. Bien avant qu’il soit éliminé d’entrée à l’Open d’Australie mi-janvier, Gasquet avait décidé d’effectuer la tournée sud-américaine sur terre battue. La semaine passée, les affaires avaient mal débuté avec une élimination au premier tour à Vina del Mar, face à Gaudio. Après sept jours d’entraînement, son jeu allait s’étoffer et en étonnait plus d’un. En écartant Calleri, Verdasco et Massu, le chouchou de Arnaud Lagardère atteignait pour la première fois de sa carrière les demi-finales d’un tournoi ATP.
Un jeu retrouvé
Comme lors du tour précédent contre Calleri, le Français dominait les débats dès les premiers jeux et empochait la première manche assez facilement (6/4). A l’attaque de la seconde manche, le Biterrois breakait d’entrée avant de s’écrouler physiquement en raison de crampes. Nicola Massu, tête de série n°3 du tournoi, profitait de ce moment de flottement pour revenir dans le match et égalisait. Devant 6 000 spectateurs, ébahis par la fougue de Gasquet, les supporters argentins encourageaient leur nouvelle coqueluche. Lors du troisième set, le Français faisait fi de ses problèmes physiques et tenait le coup mentalement, (encore une première !). A 5/5, on pensait que les deux joueurs allaient en découdre au tie-break mais le 101e mondial surprenait tout son monde et obtenait son précieux sésame pour les demi-finales (7/5).

A l’issue de la rencontre, Richard ne cachait pas sa satisfaction sur le site de l’ATP : «Ce qui s’est passé, c’est top ! C’est fabuleux de gagner un match avec un tel scénario. J’ai eu un coup de fatigue au milieu du 3e set mais j’ai retrouvé les ressources nécessaires pour remporter la décision.» Gasquet se réjouit de s’entraîner avec son paternel. Néanmoins, le prochain sommet s’apparente à une étape vertigineuse de montagne sur le Tour de France. Il se nomme Guillermo Coria.

Le roc argentin
Les choses sont simples pour Gasquet. Battre le Gaucho sur ses terres se révélerait être un authentique exploit. En effet, le dernier revers sur terre battue de Coria remonte à juin dernier et une demie perdue à Roland Garros face à Martin Verkerk. Depuis, le numéro 4 mondial a engrangé les succès aux tournois de Hambourg, Kitzbuhel, Sopot et Stuttgart. En quart de finale, il a écarté son compatriote Juan Monaco, illustre inconnu sur le circuit (7-6, 3-6,6-1). L’autre demi-finale opposera le tenant du titre, Carlos Moya, à l’Argentin Jose Acacuso, tombeur de Ferrer au tour précédent.

Gasquet rend les armes

sports.fr
Gasquet, encore un peu tendre...
La belle aventure est terminée pour le jeune Français à Buenos Aires. Pour sa toute première demi-finale disputée dans un tournoi ATP, Richard Gasquet n'a pas réussi à faire craquer Guillermo Coria, tête de série numéro 1. Dominé 7-6, 6-1, l'ancien élève de Benhabilès, tétanisé en demi-finale par les crampes, a sans doute payé au prix fort sa débauche d'efforts. Mais il aura retrouvé ses sensations cette semaine et c'est bien là l'essentiel...

Hello!

Well, finally I have uploaded the pictures I took in ATP Buenos Aires in this thread:
http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=8786

Since last week Richard is one of my favorite players! He signed me an autograph, and he plays excellent!
I have seen some fans in this msg board very surprised when he defeated Massú and arrived to semifinals. I can say that it is not a surprise, he plays amazing, he will be a top ten in about 12-15 months.
I saw him live in 3 rounds, he is excellent. Coria is in his best moment but Richard almost won first set in semis. Congratulations to all the french fans, you have a golden boy here! I admire him too much since now.

0 and 6 over Ferreiro. Too many Ferr-something names on circuit for my liking

I thought he might have been fatigued, but that apparently was not the case

Somebody that I chat asked me the other day "uh... who exactly is it that Gasquet beat today?" because he read "Ferreiro" and couldn't decide if he could be extremely impressed because this was clearly a typo, or if it was just another of the Ferr- gang
