    Richard Gasquet or should I say (reeshard gaskay) moved into the round of 16 today with a win over argintinian and hometown hero Augustin Calleri. It looks like Richard is finally starting to get his game going. I am not sure who he faces next, but I am looking forward to seeing this kid during the upcoming clay court swing(and maybe on the tms hard court events) He is a shot maker extroidinaire with a beautiful one handed backhand, Kind of in the Pioline Mold!

    Well, maybe he's actually starting to show his talent.

    You're right Gustavo. I got somehow confused with the other up and commer Joachim Johanson, the swede that made the qf last week in San Jose.

    Ariel, now that guy has got game. He is a beast. I was a ballkid for his match vs. Roddick. He should have won. His groundstrokes off both sides are amazing, powerful, deep, relatively flat, and consistent. He was just ripping side to side to side. And his serve his huge. He hits big butt seconds too, like 110 or so.

    Just an other win for Gasquet today, it was against Massu who is a fairly good player, who defeated Roddick last year if my memory is good.

    Go Gasquet!

    HMMM, Coria vs. Gasquet. If Gasquet can win, then I may believe. But I see Coria giving him a lesson on clay like he usually does to even some top pros.

  9. Coria would win to Gaquet no doubt!
