Didn't see a thread for this--it's a good enough match for a poll :)

I'll say Tipsy in 4 but it's really more uncertain than that....

I used to like Kohlschreiber's more but now that I am watching this I think Richard's is clearly the bigger weapon, even if his stroke isnt as pretty
If you made of list of the best matches featuring a one-handed backhand then Kohlschreiber's match against Roddick at the AO is definitely up there. I agree though that Richard's backhand is better. Even if he loses his backhand never seems to let him down/make for a boring match.

That is one of my favorite matches ever. Funny how so many players have great highlight reels against Roddick. He hit over 100 winners in that match. I watched him play last night and he is looking good. Moving extremely well and still showing a pretty all court game. He is probably my 2nd favorite player after Dolgopolov.

Gasquet is making it look like its before 2011 and he is the higher ranked player and Tipsy is hanging around or not even in the top 50. I hope Tipsy can get his first serve % up and start playing more solid. I like both of these guys.

AO stats have Richard at only 4 UE's for the match so far. That's quite impressive. Also says 9/9 on net approaches. That's always been one of my favorite aspects of his game, he likes to get to net. Not as much as he used to, but he still isn't afraid unlike other guys.

Credit to Janko for staying only one break down again. The level between the two is much more great currently.
 
Damn, Gasquet is making it look easy. This might be over, Janko looks bad.

So does anyone think Gasquet will take down Ferrer if he advances?

this tourny WTA is kinda exciting too, with 4 diff players who can end up #1, kvit and Aza and Shara doing good

Having Gasquet has my favorite player can (and has) lead to major disappointment. Glad to see him feeling the ball like this.

2-0 in the 3rd for Gatorade (as my sister likes to call him for some reason). Should be fine from here on.

Not quite sure what Tipsy's problem is. I don't recall him ever being one for being impatient.

4-0 Gasquet.

Boy he came to PLAY today!
He'll beat Ferrer playing this kind of tennis.

What the hell happened to Tipsy today? Was he just outclassed? I still think he would normally put up more of a fight.

Gasquet probably played the best match of his career. I've seen him hit his BH well. But his FH, serve and net game were top notch. Hard to gauge how Tips played - Gasquet controlled the play - and wasn't missing. 8 UE in 3 sets is incredible.
