Simon: "Je ne pense pas que Richard a fait un bon match, expliquait-il. On a fait un très, très mauvais match. Moi plus que lui, c'est tout. Devant sa télé, Guy a dû nous insulter et il aurait eu raison de le faire. Ça jouait tout doucement dans le carré de service, c'était nul. Si "Ritchie" joue comme ça contre Federer en demi-finales, il va prendre une dérouillée."

"I don't think that Richard made a good match. We made a very, very bad match. Me more than him, this is all. Forget behind his television, must have insulted us and he is right. It was all soft, in the forecourt. If "Ritchie" plays like that against Federer in the semis, he will be routed." (translated by Pushkin)

Another one: "Cette semaine, mon niveau était catastrophique. Ça fait sacrément longtemps que je ne m'étais pas senti si mal sur un tournoi. Au moins, ça m'évitera de me faire désosser par Federer."

"This week, my level has been catastrophic. It has been a really long time since I've felt this bad during a tournament. At least I avoided getting thrashed by Federer."

Methinks someone's ego cannot handle a defeat

Real class there Simon.

Say what you want about Richie's boring interviews, at least he has enough sense/class to not come off sounding like that even if he is pissed or disappointed. But he is right about Richie getting eaten alive by Fed if Richie does the short moon ball thing. However did he ever think Richie was "hitting soft" cuz Simon has a lot more trouble "counter punching" against a puff ball?

A kind interview of Henri Leconte who destroys Gasquet as usual:

Richard after his win against Melzer:

GASQUET : «UN NIVEAU INTERESSANT»
«Jürgen n'a pas joué son meilleur tennis, c'est certain, alors que moi je me sentais bien sur le court. J'ai bien réussi à tenir le jeu. Il lui aurait fallu un grand match pour me battre. Il était un peu fatigué par la Coupe Davis. J'ai su rester dans le match alors que j'avais trois balles de break contre moi à 1-2 dans le second set. J'aurais pu me retrouver dans les cordes s'il avait fait ce break. J'ai bien couru, bien servi et je n'ai pas eu mal à l'épaule, c'est le principal. Je suis pas mal en ce moment mais le tennis ça se joue jour par jour. En tout cas, ça va mieux qu'il y a un an ici. J'étais dans le gouffre. J'ai un niveau intéressant mais je suis encore loin des tous meilleurs mondiaux.»

full article: http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/breves2...et-solide.html

No time to translate but a gist: Melzer was not at his best, but I moved and served well, I have an "interesting" level,but I am still far from the best players, no shoulder pain.

Very long and nice article posted by marina on rgnet.

I am sorry, I have no time to tranlate it, but one sentence is remarkable in my view. On the coaching situation, Richard is quoted saying " I see my game as they do". Allow me to speculate on this: he does not get contradictatory advice from coaches, they don't try to change his game in a way in oppositin to his nature, they encourage him to play within himself. For a confidence player like Richard who has to "feel" it, this does seem the perfect strategy. And who knows - maybe this is exactly what he never had before?

Managed to get a free copy of L'Équipe on my way home

The more interesting parts to me were:

1) Roddick praising his returning "although [he] wouldn't go as far as comparing him to Agassi". First time ever an opponent has praised this part of his game?
2) Djokovic's coach saying his play against Roddick was top 10-worthy and praising his choice of Grosjean and Piatti
3) Richard mentioning that Seb has been getting him to work on putting more on the shot after his serve

LOVE IT

"Le cocktail équivaut à de l'auto-flagellation permanente. Et pourtant il existe et repousse chaque jour le seuil de souffrance psychologique tolérable par un être humain."

"Le supporter en question va alors chercher au fond de lui-même le pourquoi du comment de la raison qui le pousse à se faire du mal aussi régulièrement."

"avant sa prochaine tendinite à l'épaule, sa crise de confiance hebdomadaire, ou sa fin de carrière prématurée pour ouvrir un snack-bar dans le Sud-Ouest"

"où le Français va aligner [...] même des coups droits dépassant le carré de service"

A mistake with the citation though. He didn't beat Murray

thanks great article. It's exactly the feeling of the Gasquet's fan. We know it's hopeless, but we hang on nevertheless

"They were part of a great generation of emerging juniors that also included Rafael Nadal, Richard Gasquet and Gaël Monfils. "You could see with all our group that they were great athletes with a big desire to be successful," Djokovic recalled. "They showed some incredible talent. I still think Gasquet is the most talented player of all that group, though he still has to fulfil his potential."

I try to translate what he said: (sorry if it isn't perfect)

"I don't like this tournament. I had painful memories there and I won only a single match in my life, against Seb Grosjean.
So I'm happy to feeling good. I say to myself that it is the moment to exorcise the fate.
I regain a good level of play. The match against Djokovic is encouraging. In the second set, I was not so far of him.

I didn't play better when I was world N.7 but I was then on a good dynamics. That was so difficult to come back from the suspension. This story is still fresh, I am happy with what I do but I don't want to get carried away. I try to live normal things. I don't want to hear: Gasquet is going to become world N.1 or Gasquet is going to stop tennis for 6 years. I don't want madman's stories. I play well and I want to go very high. But the expectation of the others, I had it. A lot. That is going to be enough. Now, I enjoy! "

EDIT: I lost time to translate it because there is the same article in English here : http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/s...ow/7763156.cms (with a better translation btw)

Take care, Novak, take care. You might not really want Richard to fulfil his potential.
