Richard lost his singles and doubles match, for which he had teamed up with Gael Monfils, today in Tokyo.
Again a day without images. Richard lost his second round match to Dmitri Tursinov 6-7 6-1 4-6, thus ending his fantastic tiebreak-record since May.
Without much time for relaxation, he was back on court for his doubles' match against the defending champions Melzer/Knowle. The French team won the first set in a tie-break, but went down 1-6 in the second set. They had the advantage in the match-breaker, but finally conceded the match 7-10.
Richard is scheduled to play the Shanghai ATP 1000 tournament next week.
