Default Chinese Hard Court Season 2014 (Shanghai)

Richard is having a couple of days off in Serignan, and will then travel to Shenzhen.

Murray has taken a WC, which makes Richard seed #4 after Ferrer, Murray, and RBA.

Allez Richard!!!

Wow! I've been really out of touch. Never realised that RBA is ranked 15! Guess the tournament feels the same. The home page has four pictures: Ferrer, Murray, Gasquet and Robredo. No RBA

RBA has had an amazing year . Starting with a great win in AO over Del Potro and then in IW over Berdych .
He does fly under the radar though . At IW , we saw him at dinner and breakfast all alone . No coach / no entourage . Maybe at that time
he couldn't afford one . My friends and I knew he played tennis but didn't know his name . We nicknamed him "guy who eats alone"
Anyway, as we were getting ready to head over the courts one late morning , we turned on the tv and there he was , beating the crap out of Berdych
We saw him later in the day and gave him a big congratulations for his win - he was absolutely stunned that anyone knew who he was ! and he was very happy
and thankful for our attention.
Anyway , he seems like a friendly enough fellow - glad to see someone else get some wins - but of course, hope that Richard plays well , building on the Davis Cup success !

RBA withdrew, so Richard is #3. Tough draw though, Richard is in the loaded bottom half...

R1: Bye
R2: Muller/ Chiudinelli
QF: Pospisil

Edit: Richard is also playing doubles with Gillou - http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2014/6967/mdd.pdf

According to the ATP OOP for Monday, Richard and Gilles are out of the doubles - alternates are to play Cabal/ Farah.

I have seen that, too. I wonder what is the reason, maybe both were somehow affected by the airfrance strike and could not make it in time. On the other hand, there was an information about a Simon injury, but no withdrawal, so this was confusing anyway.

It would be great if some Chinese fans could give us some information, the tournament website is rather useless.

There was a Paris flight on Friday night I hoped he would take - it arrived but I don't think he was on it. Murray arrived yesterday, but it doesn't seem that Richard is there yet. He's leaving it pretty late to arrive.

It seems that most of the Air France flights from Paris to Beijing/ Shanghai were cancelled yesterday. One flight left Paris late last night, and if Richard/ Gilles were on that, they will get to Shenzhen in a few hours. Fingers crossed.

Exciting! That's good news about Gillou - It's after 8pm now and Richard just got there, so playing doubles tomorrow lunchtime would have been very difficult. Hopefully that's the only reason why they withdrew.

Are you in Shenzen, Carol? Or Beijing/ Shanghai? I hope you get to see him somewhere!

There is now an official explanation for the doubles withdrawal. It says : Gasquet (right elbow)

I just saw this from Eric Salliot:

Eric Salliot ‏@ericsalliot 2 mins
@richardgasquet1 devait faire le double avec Gilles Simon à Shenzhen. Un pépin à l'épaule droite l'en a empêché. Tous des bobos...

He says right shoulder, but neither is good. Richard had tape on both at the US open. It's strange though, because Richard did 2 hours practice today (2 x 1hrs) and is doing 2 sessions again tomorrow - 2 and a half hours total, including 90 minutes with Murray.
