Really, a great match overall from Richie, until the final game with the two double faults and some general shakiness. Good serving, great returning, and good court positioning. Played near, on or inside the baseline almost every point. A lot more offense than usual, hit some spectacular BH's from all over the court and hit some good volleys coming forward.

Olli made too many errors and hit to Gasquet's BH too much, but this match-up clearly is an uncomfortable one for him. Gasquet does everything he can do, but better.

Richard served well and had a good day on the BH. Why Olie kept on playing this side, is questionable, but it was good to watch single handed BH-rallies with my boy coming out better most of the time. :D

Well this is barely a surprise in matter of quality vs quantity of rallies.

Muller could be a test vs Gasquet who does struggle vs big servers, but he should take it.

Overall solid performance from gasquet.

God I hope he maintains his form against Muller. I want to see Richie on fire again.:worship:

Yeah, Ollie played to his backhand to much, but they gave him enough confidence to hit forehand winners towards the end, so Ollie basically toast.
