Jo is my favorite players but I really hope Richard can hang in there. Even if he wins I won't mind, I'd like to see Gasquet get some confidence.

Rahhhhhhhhhhhh !

Second set Richard, 6/4

Bad double from Jo to lose the set.

He has been less tentative in this set. He needs to revert to the all attack school. But it's good for Richard to take this set.

I have to say that Richard is quite amazing for the moment.

One of this player have to win the tournament after.

I think Jo is a little short physically. He said he would be really ready for Sydney and I think we know why.

It’s only one break of serve, so it's not too late. Jo has a knack of making amazing come-backs.

Still, if he loses, I'll be happy for Gasquet. Gasquet has so much unrealised potential and he deserves some lucky breaks this year. It will be easier for him now that the burden of expectation of being the Number 1 French player is no longer on his shoulders. In contrast, Jo is very comfortable wearing that mantle.

Allez Jo! Keep fighting.

Jo has changed the rythm. He saw that Richard was using his power against him. I am curious to see what he can do with it.

There is still some hope, I think.

It's a little disappointing, but I am not worried for Jo and it's a really good thing for Richard to have found the way to return the situation. It's very good for the rest of his season.

As for Jo, a couple of wins in more at Sydney and he will be ready and steady as ever for the AO. It's important to say also that he was incredible in the first set. But it's certainly too soon in the season to maintain this kind of level.

He is still in course in double too, with Gicquel.

Disappointed, but quarter-final is a decent result nevertheless. He needs better physical conditioning for AO, with potentially 5-set matches. Hope he can play himself into form at Sidney.

Congratulations to Gasquet. Good luck to him and Mathieu, I'll be happy if either wins the title.
