Did anyone watch the match? 'cause I don't have Sydney coverage.
...it's just his second match, I mean, too bad he lost, and he couldn't play more before the AO, but he's recovering from a BIG injury which had him away for a long long time, he'll do better with time
That's true. We have to remember that he has only had 2-3 weeks to train while the other guys had more than twice that amount of time.
Poor Poor Richie His second first round lose. At least both of his loses came to good players. I just hope he gets the rust off before the AO. Richie will get some good practice and rest so he'll go into the AO nice and fresh. I hope he's not feeling too much pressure cause he had such a great year in '05. Best wish for the AO Richie!
Ah... he was really really patchy. He hit a few nice backhands, but largely, it was his downfall. Igor served there all day and watched the returns miss. Plus quite a few double faults from Richard. It was a bit of a nothing match.
richard is an intelligent guy so he know that he has to work hard to recover from his injury wich didnt allow him to play for months.His automAtism have not disappear,they are still there but he has to wake up them by practising and practising especilly his serve.
Just stay positive and believe in himself thats the most important,results will come then.
My thoughts exactly.
Richard will have more opportunites to play his tennis against Andreev. Hopefully, he will get through otherwise, I am gonna start to worry a little!
I also hope he will serve better. Allez Richard!
Btw, is there anyone who will see the match?
Ok! I start to worry now...
Richard!!! Stay far away from Paulo, please!
I hope his serve will improve and his confidence will be back soon. He deserves it.
Allez Richard!!! On est derrière toi!
