Here's a part of Björman's interview after the final:

Runner up Jonas Bjorkman said after the match: "Richard has a good game. He mixes his serves and has a great forehand ( didn't he mean a great backhand?) which is difficult to read. I think this will be a nice step for him. It was hard out there because I haven't played him before – I didn't get hold of his serve as I had hoped. I never got into the situation where I could dictate. Maybe if I could of got hold of it in the first set at 4-3 it would have been a different match but after he got in control of the match it was very difficult. On grass you can't afford to make mistakes – he's definitely a tough player. I think we already know he has a big future."

2006 ROGERS MASTERS, TORONTO

Q. How far do you think a player like Gasquet is from catching up to you? You seem to have an amazing mental advantage over him and other guys. How far are these guys?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, you got to talk not about the No. 1, you have to talk first top 10 and then top five. I think he hasn't been able to do yet. You got to keep it in perspective.
I think he's got the potential to go very high up in the rankings. It's his second Masters Series final already at a young age, to me in Hamburg and then to me here. I think if he keeps playing so well every week, he'll eventually win one of these big tournaments.
Yeah, I saw him already one year ago actually as a top 10 player. It shows how tough it is, especially for young guys. It's good, they're all very dangerous on the day, in the end the difference makes the guy who can back it up day in, day out. I think that's what he's starting to do. I think that's why we'll see much, much more from him in the future.

Q. Did he play well enough to beat you in the first set or did you beat yourself in the first set?

ROGER FEDERER: I think he was playing really well. I think he was consistent, playing aggressive, hitting his shots when he had to, serving solid. He was the best returner I think for the whole entire tournament. I knew that coming in it's going to be tougher to hold my serve and everything.
I definitely had to get used to his game a bit because I didn't know if he was going to stand far back or go in because he's got the option to do both. That kept me a little off guard. That's the strength in his game. He's not so predictable. That's what made me struggle today.

Default Re: What is said about Richard...

A little up for this tread, with some words by Boris Becker I have already notified last week.
Quote:
(...)
Quels sont les principaux concurrents de Federer et Nadal ?
(il cherche des yeux) Où sont-ils ? Je ne me rappelle pas qu'il a déjà été si facile d'être dans les dix premiers mondiaux qu'aujourd'hui. J'ai grandi à une époque où le top 10, c'était des types comme Connors, McEnroe, Wilander, Lendl, Edberg, Sampras, Agassi, etc. Il y avait une vraie compétition, c'est qui me manque. Nadal gagne sur terre, Federer partout ailleurs et les autres regardent. C'est pourtant ouvert pour ceux qui sont capables d'aligner six bons mois, pas seulement une semaine de temps en temps...

> Richard Gasquet vous semble-t-il capable d'atteindre ce très haut niveau ?
Il y a deux ans au Masters Series de Hambourg, dont je m'occupais à l'époque, j'avais découvert un des tout meilleurs jeunes joueurs que j'ai jamais vus. Il avait perdu en finale contre Federer (6-3, 7-5, 7-6) mais il avait réussi un super tournoi en sortant des qualifications. Aujourd'hui, ce n'est plus le même. Il est peut-être capable de battre n'importe qui pendant une semaine, puis on ne le voit pas pendant trois mois. J'ai du mal à le comprendre. Quand tu affiches un tel niveau de jeu sur un tournoi, tu dois logiquement le montrer plus régulièrement. Ce n'est pas normal.

> Comment l'expliquez-vous ?
Certains jeunes ne sont pas prêts mentalement à répéter des performances élevées parce que cela exige du courage et de la détermination. Le talent ne suffit pas. La régularité est une question d'attitude. Il faut se poser la question : « Pourquoi je joue au tennis ? Pour être content de passer deux ou trois tours, ou pour vouloir être le meilleur ? » Tu dois détester perdre. Quel que soit ton adversaire, même si c'est le numéro un mondial. C'est une affaire de caractère.

http://www.lejdd.fr/cmc/sport/200714...quet_6568.html
Becker said Richard isn't the same since his Hamburg final in 2005, he can have a great week for 1 week and be off for 3 months. So he doesn't understand Richard, why he can't maintain this level of play more often.
When he was asked how to explain this situation, he said that some young players aren't ready to perform regularly because they need courage and determination, talent isn't enough. It's an attitude question. They must ask "why I'm playing tennis, to pass 2 or 3 rounds, or to be the best ?" You must hate losing, whatever the opponent, even if it's the world number one. it's about character.


And also little word form Bjorn Borg.
Quote:
¿Qué jugadores le llaman más la atención de la nueva generación?

Richard Gasquet es exquisito técnicamente, pero no muy fuerte de cabeza. Djokovic es el hombre a quien hay que mirar en el futuro. Pero insisto en que no hay ninguno como Nadal, ninguno tiene esa determinación y esa fortaleza mental.

http://elmundodeporte.elmundo.es/elm...176447003.html
About the new generation, Borg said Richard is technically exquisite but isn't mentally very strong. Djokovic is the one to watch in the future. But he specifies no one is like Nadal : no one has the same determination and mental strength.

And Mr. Becker knows all about Richard to speak like that.

Interesting to know WHEN he said that about Djokovic, before or after the Miami title????? As for Nadal, this is stating the obvious, the results speak for themselves. I don't need Borg in his wisdom to tell me that Roger Federer has been the best for the last three years.

Default Re: What is said about Richard...

There was Federer interviewed live in stade2 and they asked him what he thinks about Richard not being in the top 10.

He said something like he is disappointed cos he thinks Richard is one of the best european players. In the past, he had said Gasquet was better than Djokovic and Murray and now he kinds of struggle to enter the top 10... So this situation might be difficult for Richard.

I hope the video will be on line cos I don't remember properly but once again Roger showed how nice he is.

Salut Amira, I am happy to see you back here

Here the link to the interview: http://sport.france2.fr/stade2/index...id_article=719

Well, for the non french speakers, Fed also says that he prefers Richard's game to Murray's or Djokovic's so he hopes Richard will do well, and especially in GS.

Default Re: What is said about Richard...

It worked a few minutes ago, I watched it, they're probably fixing it.
Anyway, Julie already said everything, he says very clearly he prefers Richard's game over Djokovic's and Murray's and it's kind of disappointing for him (= for Roger) that the other two have been doing better lately. He assumes it's a bit frustrating for Richard too and hopes he can catch up in a GS.

As for "Mr. Becker", we see him a lot here in Germany and I wouldn't give much credit to his opinion.

No surprise. Roger has always said he likes Richard's game and has always expressed disappointment that he hasn't done as well as he should.
