Gasquet could win this if he turns up in decent form

Well Gasquet is more offensive and more of a shot maker, the question is always if he mentally wants to put in a good effort, and could lose confidence if he goes down a set, so if Gas takes the 1st I'll say he could take it in 2, I feel if it goes 3 Murray will.

I'm guessing Murray in 2. Clay is arguably Gasquet's best surface & clearly Murray's worst, but Gasquet is past it.

Clay? Best of 3?

Gasquet a 100%

Well I would love Gasquet to win, but I think Murray will be too strong for him.

Gasquet has a shot here, I'd say he would win but with his fragile mentality in mind I'll hold off on that. But it could be an interesting match at least.

I can't say I've been all that impressed with Gasquet on clay this year. Nothing like the way he played last clay season.

Combined with the mental aspect of this particular matchup, Murray in 2.

Surely his best surface is grass?

Match of the day. Gasquet in 3.
Gasquet needs to believe he can win. That's the real issue of this match.

Murray's had the match practice he needed. A tough match for him given Richard's current form, but I'm going to make a bold prediction. Murray wins in two.

Gasquet takes this.

Murray has been even shitter ever since Lendl.

Declining.

I vote for Ricky Gervais! He rocks. But Karl Pilkington could beat either of them, he even has a head like a shaved tennis ball with eyes and a mouth, like this smiley :)

Pushray to be sent packing here, I believe. He has no game on clay, while Drugsquet is reasonably competent on this surface. This Scot hooligan being thrashed on hallowed red clay would be an amazing thing for the game and for the tournament.

Murray has reached the semis @ RG. Don't believe Gasquet has...even with he home advantage. He's in fine form but Murray has decent results on clay. He's no mug and if he loses today it will be have been a pretty tight affair.

If you call beating Prodon, Bolelli, Berrer, Troicki and Chela (with the exception of Chela who could be tricky but way past his prime) on the way to a RG SF as evidence that he is better on clay than gasquet then :lol:

I'm not saying Gasquet is a god on clay but you do have to look at the draw :lol:

Murray's only good result at RG has been beating Cilic but then again, maybe not that impressive.
