he had a problem with his left leg me thinks, in set 4 he didnt seem to be moving well I think the injury occurred from set 2 when recovering a shot at the net

Well, I'm actually in a dorm room. Without cable. I haven't seen the match, so I have no idea what happened or why Gasquet lost the second set.

hmmm only gasquet knows why he lost the 2nd :rolleyes: he just looked slightly out of sorts he seemed to be slightly tired and his mind was probably wondering on to the 3rd set but then got his head straight again to take the 3rd

And he has this elbow tendinitis (? is it english) which bothers him. What is the psychological part of it I don't know. I didn't see the match but it seems that he started to serve WTA style because of that.
Fortunately for Richie, Galimberti was really really REALLY bad and injured as well.

Unfortunate for Richard's opponent, but Richard keep your run at the Open going!

From what i've been reported: Gasquet played relatively well in the first set won 6-1 (relatively since it's the better he's done with his injury so far...he played far better before). Then Galimberti who just managed to won 7 matches on the main circuit so far in 10 years of career picked up his game a little bit and Gasquet played like absolute shit (so many UEs...) and called the trainer. We feared the worst at this moment thinking he would retire...He was getting massages at every time out apparently and played with no power...He lost this set... Then it was a little bit better from him (especially with his serve, he started serving relatively fast again...) but that was still an horrible match to watch with both players making lots of UEs. You could see Gasquet was rushing and wanted to win this match as sson as possible (i can't believe he lost a set to Galimberti even injured... :eek: ). He won this set 6-3. He then broke at the beginning of the fourth set but Galimberti retired for a problem with his leg/ankle...
Gasquet won't beat Ljubicic if his elbow still make him suffer and if he can't pick up his game. But he's done the least he had to do considering the condition...A third round is not so bad...

At least he has won some precious points.
Good luck Richard in the next round! You'll really need it! ;)
I really hope he forces himself to play at his best despite the pain or that his elbow holds for this match so that he could at least bother Ljubicic a little beat...
If the "Great Ivan" win it will be no surprise...

Well, the recreational room does, the big room downstairs. But our individual rooms don't and people in the rec room rarely want to watch tennis. ;)

How bad was the elbow? Could those who watched the match share (I think the Ljubo fans are eager to find out too)? Did he really serve WTA-style? :eek:

Actually, I would rather he withdraw and not risk injuring his elbow further returning Ljubo's serves. It would make more sense than screwing up the rest of his season/next season.

Do you silly Gasquet fans intentionally pick funny pictures of him for your avatars? Oh, of course you do.

I agree :lol: does not want to risk it..returing 130-140mph serves.
but im think there is something wrong with Ljubo to

at one point of match today..he won 27straight pts on serve..from end of 1st to middle of 2nd

then after winning game on 27th pt....next 3 games he goes down 00-40....he saved all 3 pts 1st 2 games..then got broken 3rd time..

so not sure whats going on. after that 27pts in row..i thought it was a fine.

It depends. This particular one was chosen because of the unusual expression he shows. :lol: Just like when you had the avatar of Rafael with the two fingers. ;)

I thought of putting that one up after Montreal, but it was more effective to just bump threads.
