    GAsquet is number 7 and Berdych 10. Djoko now number 3. Who do you think will win a Grandslam first?

    I would like to see Robredo, Blake, Gonzalez replaced by guys
    like Murray, Baghdatis etc.

    Blake is talented but he is running short of time now.
    Gonzalez is a worthy top 10 but I don't think he will win a slam.

    I think that Berdych will turn into a new Safin.....at best.
    Gasquet has potential for greatness.......but will he put everything in his game together in the future ?? that is the question.

    But somewhat disappointed with his semi-final against Federer.

    Gasquet had a couple of chances in the 1st set that he squandered.
    Then he appeared to have decided that he can't beat Federer yet
    and then folded his cards, so to speak. I wanted to see him going
    "all-in" so to speak.

    Federer and Nadal.

    Note that Gasquet now stopped by Federer twice at the Wimbledon.

    I now have a big expectation on Gasquet for the 2nd half of 2007.

    Don t forget something: Gasquet finished his (very long) match against Roddick at 8h00 p.m. and he had to play his match against Federer the day after at 12h00 a.m.!!!!
    Stupid Wimbledon organisers......like they couldn t put this match just after the Women final!:evil:

    To be fair to Richie, he simply could not move as well as he did in Roddick match. His foot was bothering him and if you can't move 100% against Roger then you toast no matter how much you want to win. And given that Richard lost in straights only 1 break each set, I say I would not blame him in any way for lack of heart, etc. He really tried his best.

    Nah. Unless Federer put something in Richard's drink at Roland Garros.

    the only thing i regret in this match is the first set: he really should have won this first set (2 break pts at 5-5)as overall he was the best player in that set.

    I understand Gasquet must have been tired.

    But Gasquet is still moody player. He seems to stwitch between 2 modes:
    defensive mode and zoning mode.

    There is no middle ground. For example, first 2 sets against Roddick,
    plain dull modes. Then suddenly got chances in 3rd set which converted
    him into zoning mode.

    If he wants to be a great player, I think he needs some of Djokovic's mental
    attitude that constantly seeks opportunity until the end of a match.

    Well,Djokovic is strong mentally but he is not exactly in zoning mode everytime ,far from it.
    Actually i thought he played mostly defensively against Hewitt and Baghdatis
