Richie had nothing left in the 5th set - shame he wasn't fully fit

He was bending over a bit like he wanted to vomit...

I've never seen Ginepri play before, and the two secs they showed on CBS didn't give me any impressions...

Gasquet did as well as he could in the four sets before, but in the fifth set he was just not able anymore to put up any more resistence. But the fourth round isn't too bad at all for his first try, he will come back stronger and healthy next year I hope!

Congrats Ginepri for your result there, great achievement! :yeah:

Ginepri's just really, really fit. Wow.

Except that he looks like motorcycle gangster and I hate him.

Richard :sad:

What a pity. At least he put up a fight. Asking for a 3rd consecutive five-set win would have been too much. If he had been able to serve normally, he no doubt could have pulled this out.

Two bad for Gasquet up 2 sets and a break...
At the end he was very tired as the road to this 4th round was very long, too long for Gasquet, he failed to save energy in the -on the paper- easier matches against Galimberti and Montanes and he was clearly hampered by his ellbow problems which resulted in his weak serve.

If you have only limited time then watch the 2nd and 3rd set only. My view: the fifth set was a blowout, in the first set Gasquet struggled to find any rhythm and the fourth set was only good for the first few games and after that was too one-sided from Gasquet's point of view and it was the start of Ginepri's cruise to victory.

:bigcry: Richard...
WD Ginepri for hanging there in the fourth set! :yeah: But it's so frustrating that Richard had no more gas and this elbow problem...So sad. He could have fought better and it would have been closer in the end... :sad:
I'm happy he didn't retire after the the fourth set though! He stayed and got bagelled but he stayed! ;)
What a run considering the conditions! Rest and cure this elbow Richard and then come back strong! :)

Never try to watch the 5th set if you are a Richi fan which you obviously are. The TB of the 3rd set was superb from Richi :worship:

In this case he is right. I'm also predicting that Coria will wear down Ginepri in cruel fashion, I see almost no chance for Ginepri to win this match. Coria's style is so different, unlike Gasquet or Haas he will frustrate the hell out of Ginepri by retrieving more and more shots and most of all he has of all sort of variations. Only chance for Ginepri is to overpower Coria, but he would need to play an almost perfect match then.
