2nd Round Vienna: Roddick vs. Gasquet. Who will win?

Gasquet will have to return well and keep focused throughout the match.
Roddick will have to serve well and not let Gasquet hit down-the-line backhand winners off his crosscourt shots.

Who will win?

Roddick will take Gasquet to task.

If Roddick's serve is off, I could definitely see Gasquet winning. He has more than enough game to beat Roddick. But judging from the way Roddick served today, it doesn't look like he's having any trouble serving.

Then again, Gasquet is miles ahead of Acasuso in the returning department. I wish I had coverage of it.

:lol:
nobody else voted for gasquet so I had to.
i think gasquet could easily beat roddick as he did blake, but i dont think gasquet's brain will cooperate with gasquets skills

no clue how either are playing so I can't say who will win.. wish i could see the match, though.

Roddick is difficult to beat if he takes an early lead.
Gasquet is a quality player, and should look to play two efficient sets.

Roddick seems to be on a wave since Jimbo is with him, while Richard is more inconsistent. I'd pick Roddick, maybe in 3

I can't wait to watch this. I'm curious to see if Richie can get a lot of returns back in play. Even some of the good returners in the game can't handle Andy's power but there's no way of finding out until they play him.

Richard would have to move into another gear from yesterday's performance. Given his coughing and nose-blowing during changeovers yesterday, this is not very likely.

But what ever I can do to push him forward will be done. ;)

On a good day Richard could definitely beat Andy, but i think Andy is going to win this one. He might lose a set, but not easily.

then again, i'm bad at this. :shrug:

How fast is this surface?

If its relatively fast then I think Roddick will win but if it's a slower court I think Gasquet may be able to win this one.

For your avatar, Henman is not "Ancic killa", Ancic leads head2head 2:1, and Henman bit him last time because Ancic was to tired! Henman sucks!:o

I'd like to see Richie play well, but I can't really see him turning round his poor showing against Falla.

Roddick in straight.

Oh, c'mon! You obviously don't know that Mario had an injury which took him away from tennis courts for 2 months! This was to much for him, two matches in one day, I know that Henman play that much too, but Mario is not 100% ready. Feed that into your ass. :wavey:

If Gasquet has trouble returning Hewitt's serve imagine how he'll do against Roddick.:o But I wish him luck.

Unless Richie raises his level overnight, Andy is the favorite. Wish I could watch this!!!

after having seen this match,i now definitely think that Gasquet is an overrated player.....he'll be lucky to win one slam in the future,mark my words

he has a good game to watch but the problem is that he really sucks in Tennis two most important areas: serve and return of serve.
you just can t win big titles with a so weak serve and return of serve,that's impossible

yeah i'm overreacting a bit probably but the truth is that Richard has not improved since his win against Federer last year......actually i would say that his level has even decreased and that's more worrying.

Jimnik

I thought Richie was up against an in-form A-Rod. No shame in losing this kind of match.

After the first set, Andy played some beautiful tennis. Some of his touches at the net were :eek: so unlike Andy.

Yeah, Roddick played great tennis. Some nice fh shots and good volleys. I think Gasquet had not a single bp.

I saw the first set and I thought it was quality tennis from both players. I did not see the complete 2nd set, but, in the first 4 games, Andy became more aggressive as Gasquet's level dropped. From the bits I saw of the 3rd set, Gasquet was making too many unforced and silly mistakes, whereas, Andy was playing solid tennis. I was very impressed with Andy's performance today and disappointed with Gasquet's 2nd and 3rd set performances.
