I'm afraid, as usually.
Afraid to see horrible first rounds like seb/arnaud etc...

Depending on the draw of course but realistically I dont think Richard will get to the semi-finals.
I'm just hoping to get out of the 1st round for now.

Prodigious Gasquet has talent to make it to summit
From Neil Harman, Tennis Correspondent in Paris

THERE is abundant fantasy in his style of play, but only now that Richard Gasquet has been shaken from his illusion of innocence is he offering France a realistic prospect of becoming its men’s singles champion. Considering that the 18-year-old has played a mere six best-of-five set grand-slam matches — two more than Rafael Nadal, the “favourite” — the ask is akin to leaping over the Eiffel Tower in one bound.

Twice in the past six weeks on clay, Gasquet has played Roger Federer, the world No 1, beating him in the grand manner in the quarter-finals of the Monte Carlo Open before succumbing six days ago in the Hamburg Masters final, a match that the Swiss knew he dare not lose. Maybe it was just as well for Gasquet that the result was as it was — imagine the fervent surges in speculation had he beaten again the player few can beat once.

Gasquet has had to deal with the quirky nature of fame since he was pictured, aged 9, on the front cover of Tennis Magazine, tagged the great French hope. Two months before his 16th birthday, he defeated Franco Squillari, the 2000 French Open semi-finalist from Argentina, in Monaco and the predictions seemed well-placed. Adolescence was not easy. His form came and went and after disqualification for tossing his racket and narrowly missing a line judge during qualifying for the US Open last year, he came to his senses.

“I was destroyed,” he said. “When you act like an idiot, you don’t do the right things, you don’t practise well, you lose matches. It is a vicious circle. I came back to France and decided to return to zero; I went to the federation and asked Eric Deblicker (an astute coach) to help me. He made things clear.

“When I got to 18, I needed an extra eye on me, rather than just my father’s. He had made me very strong, very young, but he knew I needed something different. Had I been with Eric 18 months ago, I’m not sure it would have worked. Now it is right.”

Gasquet also spoke to Alain González, the father of his best friend, who deals with adolescents and their problems. “You get to 18 and you can become a little lost in your mind,” Gasquet said. “I found I couldn’t get to the end of matches, my energy was poor and players found that out. It was difficult for me to be a warrior at 17. He (González) asked if I was ready to give tennis 100 per cent because I was in a haze, as many are at that age. I said I was convinced it was what I wanted to do. I had to be strong, to be professional.

“A lot of people think I’m old, that I’m 20 already, but I’m only 18. I made a lot of mistakes last year, but I had the right to do that because I was young. The other players see that I’m not a fantasist any more, that I’m not going to give up. I am arriving in Paris hypermotivated to do well.”

Thanks for the article *M*, I really loved it! I might just say one of the best Richard article I have read in a long time.

what richard said in this article moved me. i think it can help us to be closer to his mind. and what he said is right, for marat safin has said like as''not to put too much pressure on his shoulders'' and ''he needs to play more matches on the court and make him stronger and the most important thing now for him is to get a win title''
i think richard can, he has gotten ready ,right?

Nadal-Gasquet: it's game on (again)!
By Benjamin Waldbaum
Friday, April 22, 2005

Born on 3rd and 18th June 1986 respectively, Rafael Nadal and Richard Gasquet both epitomise the precocity of youth. Indeed, Nadal’s rise to prominence has been nothing short of meteoric. Ranked 235th in the world at the end of 2002 after a haul of six Futures titles, he had soared to 45th one year later, courtesy of victories against the likes of Carlos Moya, Albert Costa, and Paul-Henri Mathieu. Then, in 2004, the Majorcan well and truly "exploded". After winning his first title at Sopot, he went on to impress during Spain’s Davis Cup triumph, chipping in with a point against Andy Roddick in the final.

This year, Nadal is continuing where he left off. Capable of slugging it out from the baseline all afternoon and generating phenomenal topspin, this clay court specialist with the doggedness of Lleyton Hewitt proceeded to win his second and third titles at Costa do Sauipe (Brazil) and Acapulco (Mexico), before reaching the final of the Miami Masters Series, where he twice came within two points of defeating Roger Federer.

"Discouraged"

His flawless trajectory seems to have spurred on Richard Gasquet, who had originally been the first of the two to shine at senior level when he became the youngest player to win a match on the circuit since Tommy Ho in 1988. At the age of 15 and 10 months, Gasquet beat former Roland-Garros semi-finalist, Franco Squillari, in the first round of the Monte-Carlo tournament. After becoming junior world champion that year, the prodigy from Sérignan was subsequently plagued by inconsistency. Having been 93rd in the world ranking at the end of 2003, he had slipped to 109th a year later, despite a first-ever final on the senior circuit, at the Moselle Open. In midsummer, Gasquet seemed to fall victim to an attack of self-doubt, making the news mainly for giving up in the first round of the Bronx Challenger due to "discouragement" and being disqualified for throwing his racket in the first round of the US Open qualifiers.

Federer the victim

Taken in hand by Eric Deblicker in October 2004, Gasquet soon rediscovered his direction, despite a season truncated by a bout of chicken pox. After two Challenger titles, Richard qualified for the final stages at Monte-Carlo, three years after making his resounding debut there. He proceeded to draw plaudits for his progress in terms of attitude and control of matches. His powerful right arm, one of the most impressive in tennis, brought him wins over Nikolay Davydenko, ranked 15th in the world, and, most notably, the world number 1, Roger Federer, after surviving three match points during a breathtaking encounter. All those who witnessed it are unlikely to forget the unfeasible "backhand passing shot down the line" played by Gasquet on the point that enabled him to become only the second player, after Marat Safin, to fell Federer in 2005.

Six years later…

Gasquet consequently earned himself a semi-final at Monte-Carlo against Nadal, victor in the quarter-finals over reigning Roland-Garros champion, Gaston Gaudio 6/3, 6/0! And the contrast of styles presented by the two youngsters made for a superb spectacle. On one side, the Frenchman sought to impose his attacking game, while on the other, the Spaniard covered an incredible amount of ground. Physically the stronger, it was Nadal who eventually prevailed, going on to clinch his first Masters Series title the following day against the title-holder, Guillermo Coria. Now one of the favourites for The French Open, the Spaniard has climbed to 2nd place in the ATP 2005 Race, where Gasquet occupies 47th position. While he is not yet at the same level as his rival, the Frenchman is catching up fast, and at Monte-Carlo, it was he who worried Nadal most, before losing out narrowly, 6/7, 6/4, 6/3. A glance back at the stats shows that, at their first meeting in the 1999 quarter-finals of the "Petit As" Under 14 tournament, it was Gasquet who beat Nadal in a match consisting of exactly the same number of games as in Monte-Carlo (6/7, 6/3, 6/4). Six years on, the struggle is still just as tight, and it’s surely only just beginning... which can only be good news for tennis.
