Quet should be out of Gas after playing Estoril and the 3-setter against Belluci.

Fed in straights.

Matches like this make me want to cry.

Why is that?
Both in top 20, both have very attractive styles of play, their match in Rome 2011 was very entertaining.

Gasquet actually playing fairly well, I think he may be able to win a set if Federer is off a little. Federer in 3

Gasquet has a 2-1 career H2H lead over Fed on clay, and clearly owns him.

Richard in 3 vs. Still-getting-into-the-groove-erer.

Even if it was red clay I would put Fed as the favorite to win, but this H2H is irrelevant IMO when playing on blue clay. The match today felt more like indoor HC than clay.

this will be more like a practice session for fed after the raonic match.

I think you will be surprised, Federer is still rusty and all Raonic got him used to was huge serving, something that is the opposite of Gasquet.

I think RIchard's tricky slice serve could trouble him, he will have to adjust a lot AND although Federer will probably return well, he'll be facing a much more variety in the groundstrokes that Gasquet presents....

not to mention Gasquet can cover the court and Raonic can't.

definitely should be at minimum one close set

Drugsquet has zero chance. ZERO. This overrated mug can hope for 8 games max.

Raonic could have made the final here :o. All luck this Olderer.

The fact that part of the H2H is true is remarkable. I can say that the rushing the net plan Federer used vs Raonic does make me worry a little bit about this. I think Fed will be winning another three-setter.

Gasquet almost capitulated against Bellucci and his shotmaking these days is no where as awesome as Raonic's. He will get blown off the court in straights.

Federer in two close ones. 6-4 6-4

Dream draw for Gasquet. He just loves beating Roger on clay. Based on Luckyerer Escaperer's performance vs Milos you have to go with Richie who's been on great form on the dirt recently. Plus he leads the H2H on clay. Not at all unreasonable to expect him to win this.

Yes, very lucky, got Raonic who 'could have made the final' in his first match after off season like break.

Fed in 2.

Gasquet serves well but he's not in top-form and this quick surface is better for Fed.

Also I think it's more slippery on center court than court 1, and Gasquet was already complaining a lot about court 1 : his defensive style of play 3 meters behind the baseline of course makes him more vulnerable to sliding than Fed :lol:

he will have to be very offensive today, which will be a big change for him :rolleyes:

Gasquet has a good record against Fed on clay but Fed's confidence will be high after yesterday & I can't see him losing this.

Is there a way to put people on ignore, guys? I'm new to the forum and I can't stand this poster talking **** in every single thread. He comes off like a 12 year old brat who just likes causing trouble for the sake of it. :facepalm:

By the way, back on topic, I think this match will go down in two sets, but if Gasquet can push a tiebreak, I suspect it will go to three. Should be fun either way.
