WWW IW R4: Gasquet vs. Roddick

This is going to be a great match. I like both of these players, but I think I support Richard Gasquet's quest to return to the top 10.

Both excellent players, regardless of who wins = Tennis wins Too close to call.

Re: IW R4: Gasquet vs. Roddick

No idea...haven't watched either of these guys matches. I'll take a random stab. Roddick will probably prevail. He'll either attempt to out serve him or use the home crowd to get to Richard's head.

Head says Roddick, pet lion says Gasquet.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Duck, naturally. Gasquet won't be able to handle his serve and has no big forehand to punish him off the ground. This is one of those matches where Duck will be easily able to serve and push his way to a straight set win.

Re: IW R4: Gasquet vs. Roddick

^^ As if you need a big FH to punish Duck off the ground Or does Ljubo have a big forehand?

Re: IW R4: Gasquet vs. Roddick

Gasquet has legitimate chances to win this. He's a former top 10, and off the rallies I would say Gasquet's return game is superior and has more power. Roddick has the serve of course.

But I'll be happy with either one winning, hopefully they will trouble the top seeds in the QF.

Re: IW R4: Gasquet vs. Roddick

I love Gasquet and my heart says him but he is a total head case and that head of his will never allow him to live up to his potential - Roddick in 2 easy sets I'm afraid.

Re: IW R4: Gasquet vs. Roddick

I have almost no doubt Roddick will win this.

He will push Gasquet patience till he cracks.

Re: IW R4: Gasquet vs. Roddick

Remember, the reason Gasquet became a top 10 player was with a win over Roddick. Of course, a lot has happened since then...a lot.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Re: IW R4: Gasquet vs. Roddick

well, the only chance for Richard is 1) return as much as possible and as long as possible 2)block Roddick on the backhand diagonal.

Re: IW R4: Gasquet vs. Roddick

If Gasquet plays well, I think he will take it, but don't think he will play well.
Roddick isn't playing well lately, so everything is possible.

Re: IW R4: Gasquet vs. Roddick

If Richard plays like he did yesterday, he can well win. A lot will depend on the strength of his own serve and his confidence to go for his shots.
