Richard's next tournament will be the Medibank International, in Sydney. After his loss to Henman, Richard and partner, Grosjean, then withdrew from the doubles.
Gasquet/Grosjean were replaced in the doubles by Starace/Tursunov.
Richard will be feeling uplifted ahead of his journey down under, as he continues his comeback from an elbow injury.
"Last year I had a lot of pain and now I have no pain, which is good. I just have to practise and I will be OK."
Sydney has a strong draw, which will provide good preparation for Richard ahead of the Australian Open.
