    I'd like to watch full-length matches in which he dominates. Any recommendations?

    I cant stand Gaskit but these are probably his best ever performances and matches:

    2005 Monte Carlo quarters vs Federer
    2005 Monte Carlo semis vs Nadal (even though he lost)
    2006 Halle Round of 16 vs Federer (even though he lost)
    2006 Masters Series Canada quarterfinals vs Berdych
    2006 Masters Series Canada final vs Federer (even though he lost)
    2007 Masters Cup vs Nadal (even though he lost)

    Agree with Fedace; the match against Federer at Monte Carlo has some of the best tennis played by Richard; and he came back from match point down to win, so that's a bonus! :)

    My 2 top pick would be
    1) 2007 Wimbledon QF vs Roddick - glorious backhand display (awesome shotmaking ability)
    2) 2005 Monte carlo vs Federer - exciting from start to finish; where did that forehand go?

    These are his two best matches to date.

    In the Roddick match, a lot of people think that Roddick blew it. However, those final three sets were an absolute shotmaking fest from Gasquet

    I've heard him say Dick Gaskit or Dickie Gaskit. For those who don't know....Dick is often a nickname for Richard.

    during the us open series, bg also insisted on pronouncing Gilles Simon's last name how the name "Simon" is pronounced in english. Fowler kept correcting him, gilbert just kept on with the comedy

    I'd go with the Wimbledon match mentioned. I like watching him on grass, he seems like a natural to me.
