Richard is playing in his first tournament after Davis Cup, as he participates this week in the Rogers Cup, Montreal.
This is a Masters Series event, and Richard is seeded number 15. He will face his first round test today against Russia's Mikhail Youzhny. Their match is first up on Centre Court with an 11.00am start (local time).
Richard will be out for revenge, as in their previous meeting, Youzhny edged out the victory in four sets. That was, however, two years ago and Richard's game has come on in leaps and bounds since then.
Good luck Richard!
