WWW? Cincinnati R2: [1] Nadal vs. Gasquet

What excites you more, this intriguing second round match-up or the fact that Nadals most unbiased expert Sicario gets unbanned tomorrow?

I missed Sicario. Hopefully Rafa greats him with a nice victory here.

This tourney bores me to death with the field. I have no excitement whatsoever.

Re: WWW? Cincinnati R2: [1] Nadal vs. Gasquet

Gonna be a tough match, Richie is playing well, offered the biggest resistance to Zverev the whole tournament last week

Rafa knows he will be #1 again but this week is very important to gain points and cushion the lead

Gasquet in 2 hopefully.

This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Re: WWW? Cincinnati R2: [1] Nadal vs. Gasquet

Including Gasquet into a WWW-Poll against a Big-3 member should be against the forum rules.

Re: WWW? Cincinnati R2: [1] Nadal vs. Gasquet

If Gasquet will play like Wednesday vs Sascha he will have a good chance.

Somehow he managed to beat Federer during the best year of his career.

But Nadal for him is like Federer for Ferrer. No matter the circumstances he'll lose and barely offer some resistance.

Re: WWW? Cincinnati R2: [1] Nadal vs. Gasquet

Rafa hasn't lost a set to Gasquet in years (though admittedly their last meeting was pretty tight).

Gasquet's biggest problem in this matchup is that his forehand isn't good enough. Normally the way to beat Nadal is with power (either serve or groundstrokes), and Richard doesn't have it. He's a pretty skilled player but you won't beat Nadal with craftiness (unless you can perfectly balance your variety with decent power, like Federer or on occasion Fognini).

But hey, fairly weaponless players have beaten Nadal before (Darcis, Funky Flo, GGL). It's just extremely rare. Gasquet is even a bit better than those guys so never say never.

It was MC 2005, probably the best tournament of his career, beating Davydenko and peak Federer and then pushing Nadal to 3 sets at his best tournament aside from RG. I remember watching the highlights of that match, his FH looked pretty decent back then, don't know what happened later on in his career that resulted in his current forehand.

Enjoy every moment of tennis. Enjoy the rise of the young, the brilliance of the peak, and the passion of the old. Enjoy dominance, enjoy diversity.

Fight. Drama. Shots. Epic matches, fun stats, tennis!

Gasquet will always spread his cheeks for Nadal. That much is certain. Nadal in 2 easy sets.

add Troicki and Coric.

yes the FH and Gasquet's court positioning gets exploited a lot by Nadal.

Get well soon buddy, all the best for 2018

Re: WWW? Cincinnati R2: [1] Nadal vs. Gasquet

It's rare when you say it is time for Nadal to save tennis. Gasquet is by far and away the most overrated player on tour. A fancy backhand that melts under pressure. Nothing else above average. A losers mentality. Nadal will decimate this mug.
