much more winners than ue, and looking to come in2 the net so much
more (according to t he stats) unable to watch this since Eurosport is
showing Dementieva...

Anyone else having the luck to watch the Gasquet - Gonzo match?

Gasquet aggressive style of play is the key for him to do some damage

An amazing match. Anyone who isn't seeing it should get a DVD. And
it's the standard of play more than the close score. They have been
hitting incredible winners all night.

Gonzalez just saved a match point with a monster crosscourt forehand, then had a very good serve.

And Gasquet's serve is much better than before, I think.

And a brilliant volley right on the line on another setpoint down.
Gonzo just won the third set though. Crazy tiebreak but interesting
match now.

Let's see how Richard's gonna hold up. He played one edgy dropshot in
the tiebreak which had all the characteristics of a classical choke.

yes that was outrageous!! gonzo hit such a good volley, and gasquet
had this highlight-reel forehand crosscourt pass that was awesome. And
he didn't even get to see it land in lol !! he looked at the crowd and
scoreboard and noticed he actually pulled it off!!

and the best thing about this he's getting mentally much stronger,
fighting hard, need to cut out those stupid double faults tho

It is still going on! http://www.channelsurfing.net . Gonzo just won the
third set in a magnificant match! Definitely the best match so far in
AO. I believe Gonzalez can take this now. Gasquet seemed really annoyed
by losing that set.

Yes, an amazing pass on setpoint down. Gasquet now up 6-5, Gonzo
serving.

the double faults and the really bad dropshots are concerning though.
His volleying is excellent and the backhand is ofcourse sensational.
He hits the forehand really flat and hard sometimes, but i think it's
because he's stayed so long with his previous coach Deblicker that
"staying back metres behind the baseline" style is stuck in his
system. And it makes him vulnerable.

If only he had gotten rid of Deblicker be4 ... and started playing
aggressive tennis

anyone see the passing shot on Gonzo's set point just??? It was the
craziest moment. Totally ridicilous passing shot from his forehand cross

2-1. I don't think Gasquet is going to make it.

We might have crazies, fights and chair-throwing, but no other slam gets a
crowd like this, and Gonzales is doing everything to fire them up. Gasquet gave
them the middle finger and got a warning.

One thing that is obvius to me - Gasquet has more all-around game then Fena.
If only he could hit that forehand a bit flatter, he'd really be onto
something.

thx for the link and to the homo's above: only real homo's like u care
about what someone is wearing...

for the rest of us: Gasquet has improved a lot mentally. Which is
really bad news for everyone else

Yes, and I disagree. He looks terrible. He's wearing a backwards cap.
Maybe this had minor novelty value many years ago (even though very
few brain cells were required to think: I know, I'll wear the cap
_backwards_; how clever!) but why it's persisted this long is beyond
me. You'll notice that no women wear backwards caps.That's because
they have fashion sense. They know what looks good and what looks
awful. Men have got no idea.

Very strange, because homosexuals usually have excellent fashion sense.
