Gasquet vs Blake 3rd: Who will win?

I saw Gasquet's match against Tsonga. He wasn't really that impressive and kept making the same mistakes he always does, but a little less. For example, he really went for his forehand some of the times but got an unforced error for it. His backhand too wasn't too free flowing, except for a couple of gorgeous drives. The important thing is he stuck it out and made the 3rd round and now has to play Blake.

Who do you think will win this battle for Shanghai? I have a feeling Richard will win it.

Re: Gasquet vs Blake 3rd: Who will win?

Could go either way. James isn't anywhere as sharp as he was last year. I didn't find Richard too impressive against J0-Willy either. If James gives him a slew of UEs on routine exchanges like Jo-Willy did, then Richard will win. But there's a chance James might dictate play with Richard standing so far beyond the baseline. He could take the ball early and finish off points fast, not allowing for unnecessary long rallies. If he hits 50 winners like he did in today's match, he's going to win.

Battle of two mugs. At least Gasquet has made the semis of a slam so I hope he wins.

Re: Gasquet vs Blake 3rd: Who will win?

Gasquet normally produces brilliant tennis in the match after he squeezes out a tight one.

It's really time for Richie to step up to the plate though. Big home tournament, top 10 opponent and place in the Masters Cup on the line. He needs to wins this!!

I won't hold my breath though. Although beating Tsonga indoors is actually quite a good win considering he lost to him a couple of weeks ago.

Gasquet in straight sets.
Gasquet is not very good this year to say the least but Blake is hopeless this year.

Gasquets backhand will destroy Blakes backhand and will decide the match.

Re: Gasquet vs Blake 3rd: Who will win?

Blake would have been in his hotel at about 3:00am local time tonight, and is up to play Gasquet late afternoon. I don't think that helps alhough I agree with other posters that Gasquet is far from impressive at the moment.
