Nice comeback in tiebreak Richard! :D He was down 3-6 with Igor serving for second set.


Tough match to start things off this season, but win is a win.

Allez!!

i was fortunate to watch the match courtside, and despite the hiccup leading to the second set tie-break, it was quite impressive. to see gasquet exuding such positive and confident body language was much improved from the last time i saw him in the US summer season. even with his cold, he was still keeping himself pumped up, which was good to see. he was even trying to do that when the crowd was a little quiet, which was quite funny and cute to see and hear.

hmmm, but at the same time, he tended to get a little cross with things too easily. but overall, the more confident gasquet is emerging....and it's very attractive!

Was his bh solid? Is he still standing 50 feet behind the baseline?

yeah, his backhand was pretty consistent and versatile as usual, when he chose to use it. i think he's trying hard to improve on his fh, or feel more comfortable with it, so he did that equally too.

and as for his location in regards to the stadium when he's receiving, he still tends to drift back, but he hugged the baseline a little better, and even came in on a number of occasions, with his deadly backhand of course. sometimes it worked, sometimes not, but the important thing was, he kept on trying.

which things? ;)

Thanks for the report. :wavey: All in all, it sounds like what it was : A first match after a long break, quite a good start, but certainly room for improvement. But, hej, I did love it when he won that tie-break! :)

Thanks for the report on the match. And yes, a confident Richard is a thing of beauty to watch. To early to tell but a very good sign that even after a stumble in the second set, he managed to pull it out in 2. In the past that would have gone three "for sure". This was his first match after a long break so a little stumble might be expected.

Wish I could have seen him trying to stay pumped - love it when he is fired up. Keep it up Richie!

Good job Richard!
It's good for confidence to have won this tb.

He has cold again?
I start to wonder if it's not chronic. He seems to have always a cold... or maybe his cough is just a tic. :confused:
