Default Re: *~*~*~* Indoor Season *~*~*~*

Since Richard's indoor season hasn't started yet and there isn't much to talk about on this thread I figued we could predict how well we think Richard will (or will not do) on the indoor season this year based on his game.

Questions to Ponder:
Will Richard do better this year in Metz?
How will his elbow hold up through this season?
Will he do well enough in the Masters that he could possibly qualify for Shanghai?

--I think that Richard does have a shot to qualify for Shanghai depending on how the elbow holds up. He is currently in 12th place I believe so he is on the brink of become the alt. I just hope that he won't injure himself more if the elbow isn't 100 percent. I rather him not play that many tournament for the rest year of the year so he can rest up for 2006.

Default Re: *~*~*~* Indoor Season *~*~*~*

You're right Sinead. Let's begin to speculate in here too. We'll show them how it's done without putting pressure on him...

The problem for Shangai is that Safin who has is place booked already as a GS winner this year is ranked 8th at the Race. So Richard has to focus on the 7th spot if he really wants to be in Shangai at the end of the year. And some say it would be wise not to have the Masters' Cup as a goal this year for him because he must make good use of the off season to rest, cure himself and above all, work on his fitness a lot...I don't think like that. And i think he should go for it butit's understandable to think as they do.

Because the next season, from the end of March/the beginning of April till the end will be the one of "confirmation" for him, it will be very hard and that's when we'll see if he is cut out to be a champion already or not yet...(it won't mean he'll never achieve anything if he doesn't perform as well duh! It will just mean he's keeping learning the rules of the highest level...)
Indoor HC is a great surface for him like almost every surface actually. Like he said, he showed he can play on the two extreme/opposite surfaces in terms of speed (clay<<<<grass) so Indoor HC which is somewhere in the middle close to grass is supposed to be a surface where he'll be able to play his game as he like.
Plus there is the home crowd factor that can help him too if he wants to take the challenge of fighting in the race for the Masters'...

Metz as a far stronger field this year than in 2004... Let's hope he can at least make the final again to defend his points of last year's.

Default Re: *~*~*~* Indoor Season *~*~*~*

I think that Richard's first match is going to be very telling. It will be his first match since his loss to Robby at the US Open and also his first time playing after he had time to rest his injury. I suspect that he is going to be rusty during parts of the match (especially against Beck who is no easy opponent), but hopefully he will be able to get through. Since I'm going to be in school when the match is on (and since I have no coverage) I'm hoping that someone who can see the match will tell me(us) how Richard looks.
I'm a bit nervous about this match since its first one back and he has finalist points to defend.

Allez Richard

Richard decided not to play doubles afterall. I think he wants to go slow on his elbow. Arnaud is playing with Ascione instead.

I agree with you 100%. I'm afraid because it's a very tough match ahead for a rusty Richard to play and because maybe his elbow's not completely healed yet. But the fact that he's in a very good mood (not like during the HC outdoor season for ex at the end...) and motivated to do well brings some confidence... And there are a lot of points at stake too...
The problem is we will have to ask ppl who are going to see it live or maybe Daniela if she has the coverage of this match to have reports because there is no coverage here until the 1/4 (and only three of them...). Can you believe it? And i'll probably be in school when it will take place too...

Allez Richard on Wednesday against Beck!

That's horrible Delsa they only show three of the quaterfinals. That's just plain wrong. Hopefully Richard will get that fair *crosses fingers*

I can't believe he has to play his opening round on Wednesday! I was expecting a nice Tuesday start then a day off before the 2nd round (if he wins). But let's say he does get to the final he is going to be playing 5 days straight with no rest. Damn scheduling.

I really don't like these tournaments with their wednesday 1st round schedulings, it can't be good for the players. (And also throws me off when it comes to the games I am in )
