Let's have one thread for questions instead of a new one everytime someone has a question. :)

I have a question actually. Does anyone know if Richard had a mentor when he came onto the tour? We all know that Moya was Nadal's mentor, but did Richard have one?

I would think that his mentor would have been someone from the French Federation as that's the program that he would have emerged from. They always use someone of their own as mentor I believe, just the way the federation works.. Not sure who it is, but if I find out ill mention =)

I'm not sure about that. I had the impression that mentors were assigned by the WTA/ATP. For example, ASV was assigned to mentor Sveta Kuznetsova.

As far as I know Richard didn't have a mentor like the Carlos-Rafael thing. But then again I could be wrong(as I usually am). But if I do find anything I'll be sure to post it.
