Miami R16: Gasquet def Almagro 6-7, 7-5, 7-6

The real #10 and better one-handed backhand won.

That nerves in this match were all over the place, especially in the last few games.

I expected a tiebreak bagel in the third.

Good match. Gasquet is finally adapting to the elite pace of tennis, Sanya should be pleased by this performance.

On the real ACC'16 Final:

Every one of Almagro's hard court losses this year have been painfully close.

Some amazing rallies in this one with 2 of the best 1 handed backhands in the world, if not the best.

I thought it was an awful match Almugro was dire, hitting every 2nd shot into the net and reached a total of around 60 unforced errors. Gasquet was pretty much just moonballing.

Once again Gasquet had an extremely slow start. Completely messed up the first TB. Should have been a two set win. He was still far from his level in the Rochus match(2nd set).

Next up, Berdych or Querrey.

Re: Miami R16: Gasquet def Almagro 6-7, 7-5, 7-6

That backhand at 3-3, 15-30 in 3d set by Richie... You won`t see this kind of shot twice in your life.

Match was OK, not as great as drama though, but decent. The most positive thing for me is Gasquet`s attitude here - he came back from two breaks in 1s set, earned two sps only to lose the set then, but didn`t lose focus. Gasquet 2.0 here we go.

Gasquet is next №1
