Richard won his second round match in Marseille against Blaz Kavcic 6-3 6-3, but Canal + preferred a replay of Tsonga-Davydenko.
This was a very annyoying situation. There were apparently cameras on court 1, as one could see a doubles match at the same time on various streams, but the French number 1 and the number 1 of the tournament gets no television coverage. It is hard to imagine that things like these could happen in other countries.
Richard will play the winnr eof Dodig-Kamke in the quarter finals.
