Richard wants to play Valencia, and then Paris Bercy. Hopefully he will get a WC for Valencia.

Allez!!!

I think if he asks for a WC into Basel, it's a good chance he will get it. Valencia will be a better option though, it will suit him more!!

ALLEZ Reeshard!!

Murray now seems to be deciding between Basel and Valencia (before, he said he was playing Valencia). I guess wherever he goes will affect Richard's chances of a WC.

This just on twitter - I'm looking for confirmation...

Simon Haring @ _shaering 6 minutes ago
First two Wildcards in Basel go to Richard Gasquet and Borna Coric. #SwissIndoors

http://www.nouvelles-sportives.ch/te...0HpMM8.twitter

Edit: I think Richard is currently the #7 player at Basel, and would have been the #10 player at Valencia, so maybe this is a good choice if it's true.

It was going to be hard to get a WC for Valencia. Spain have a lot of players in top 100 so they wanted to give them a chance.

All the best in Basel!

That's a good point, ImmzB. Eric Salliot is also writing about Basel, so it seems to be true.

Allez Richard!

I just came home from the Vienna tourney () to see the news. I guess it was uncertain to recieve a WC for Valencia because of the contradictory info about Murray, so Basel was obviously a safer choice.

I'm just glad Richard's playing an ATP 500 somewhere next week. And at least this way even if Murray goes to Basel, I think Richard would still be a top 8 seed.

One simply does not win a set with 27 % 1st serves in, as Dominic did in the first set. But despite the loss, he is great to watch, when things work well. Nothing beats a single handed BH down the line or with great angles.

If he plays against Wawrinka and Federer in the same half of the draw and he wins he can gets more chances to play in single for the Davis Cup.

Yes, now Richard has competition for his place it will hopefully really motivate him to have 2 good tournaments in Basel and Paris. To be honest, he's quite lucky to get a WC to Basel after that Llodra match last year.

I hope he gets an ok draw and can make the most of it. (The draw is on Saturday, 18th October, at 4pm local time) Allez!

So Murray did take a WC to Valencia after all. That's maybe why Richard went to Basel. Still hope he can play well and get some wins. Allez!

So Basel it will be for Ricahrd. What a theater performance from Murray for Valenica: no, yes, no, yes.

No worries, nobody will remember. The only thing the tournament organisation and the crowd care for is Roger. The stands will be empty for the other matches, maybe half full for Wawrinka.
