*sigh*
I know exactly what you mean Via!!! Here is Rafa beating the number one player in the world...ranked #32 in the world and Richie, well, don't even know where Richie is. I just hope his tendonitis goes away and that he is able to play in Estoril!

Yah - Richie has been off for the last 2 weeks with tendonitis so it is always hard to tell whether or not it has completely settled down...as for Massu, I know he has sucked as of late...but you can never shun him when it comes to playing on clay....but ohhh well ALLEZ RICHIE!!!!!!

Richard won 0-6 7-6 7-6! Following the live scores and seeing him waste one chance after another makes me think of Amélie Mauresmo. Talented but ...

Go Richard! Beat Nadal!

Exactly...talented but...!! Big problem in his head (Amelie too...)

Well, he won today so it's good though even if I don't undrestand the score ...he's going to play Nadal ? Good test..

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

L'equipe:


Le jeune Français (17 ans) a fait jeu égal avec l'Espagnol Nadal, son aîné de quinze jours, pendant près de deux heures avant de plier.


APRÈS SA DÉFAITE face à Rafael Nadal, Goran Ivanisevic avait déclaré à propos du coup droit de l'Espagnol : « Il est incroyablement lourd et rebondit si haut que je pense que ses adversaires droitiers (Nadal est gaucher comme le Croate) vont devoir monter dans les gradins pour le renvoyer. » Richard Gasquet est parvenu hier à donner la réplique à son rival en restant tout le temps sur le terrain. À en juger par les meilleurs passages de ce match, il est probable que les deux jeunes se seraient livrés une bataille mémorable si un vent violent et tourbillonnant n'était venu trop souvent gâcher le spectacle. « J'estime même que nous avons eu du mérite de parvenir à faire autant d'échanges compte tenu de ce vent », devait dire le Français.
Même si la comparaison entre ces deux grands espoirs du tennis agace la famille Gasquet, il est certain qu'il y a dans leurs rencontres un petit piment supplémentaire. « On parle de nos matches parce que nous avons le même âge, assure Richard, mais ça ne me pose aucun problème. J'arrive à en faire abstraction. » Francis, le père et coach, insiste lui aussi sur le fait qu'il ne faut pas tracer de parallèles entre les deux gamins. « Nadal suit sa voie, dit-il. Richard est en progression lui aussi. Il n'y a aucun problème. Tout en conservant ses qualités propres, il faut qu'il s'inspire de la combativité de Nadal. »


C'est précisément cette combativité dont le fiston a donné pas mal de bons exemples durant ce tournoi qui met le sourire sur les lèvres familiales. « Même si j'ai perdu aujourd'hui, je fais un bon bilan de ce tournoi, analyse Richard, parce que j'ai disputé deux gros matches face à deux adversaires très solides sur terre battue et à chaque fois, je me suis battu jusqu'au bout. Je n'ai aucun regret à avoir. »

Après son marathon de trois heures de la veille face à Massu, le jeune Français avait un peu de plomb dans les jambes à l'appel du troisième set contre Nadal. « C'est vrai que sur la fin j'étais vraiment fatigué, avouait-il. Mais après avoir égalisé à une manche partout, je me disais quand même que c'était du 50-50. » Le reproche que l'on pourrait lui faire serait d'avoir manqué une occasion d'économiser ses forces au premier set en perdant son service alors qu'il venait de faire le break pour mener 4-3. Sur ce huitième jeu, Gasquet ne parvint pas à serrer les boulons de manière à conserver son avantage. « Il n'a pas voulu mettre le bleu de chauffe, déclare son père de façon imagée. C'est regrettable parce que s'il avait gagné le premier set, Nadal se serait trouvé en mauvaise posture. »

Malgré la fatigue, Gasquet eut également une petite ouverture au troisième set avec une balle de deux partout qui lui aurait permis de récupérer un break concédé d'entrée. « Si je gagne ce point, le match peut encore tourner en ma faveur », estimait-il après coup.

Il faillit bien, pourtant, gagner cette partie sans même avoir à mouiller la chemise. À la fin du deuxième set, en effet, on vit en effet Nadal faire appel au kiné qui le soigna et lui posa un strapping sur la cheville. « Je me suis fait mal à la fin de mon match contre Ivanisevic, devait ensuite expliquer l'Espagnol. On n'a pas encore pu déterminer exactement ce que c'est, mais la douleur était assez forte, au point que je me suis demandé un moment si je n'allais pas être obligé d'abandonner. Mais il était important pour moi de battre Richard et de me qualifier pour les quarts de finale. » Nadal allait, dans la soirée, passer des examens susceptibles de l'éclairer sur la suite à donner à son tournoi. Il n'était pas exclu qu'il déclare forfait aujourd'hui ce qui offrirait un billet gratuit pour les demi-finales à Irakli Labadze tombeur de Max Mirnyi.
