Blockbuster second round match here. If Gasquet can bring his best to this encounter he certainly could trouble Roger. Will Federer be tired from Basel and not give a shit about this tournament, previous results indicates he doesn't care but if he is going after the top ranking again he could this event a serious go for once?

Can Gasquet step it up and get a huge win in front of his home crowd, he really needs a big win to get his confidence back and to get some momentum going again on tour?

So who will win, I'm going with Federer in 3 but would love to be proven wrong.

If Federer cares, he'll take it comfortably in 2.

11-08-2010, 10:29 PM
I reckon Fed will stay in the tournament as long as he doesn't get put into a tight spot and has to expend too much energy getting out of it, so if Gasquet can keep him under pressure he has a chance. Otherwise Fed in 2.

I just hope that both will play well, so that I can enjoy my two guys. Given the recent past, Roger is the favourite, but some of their encounters were damned close - at a time when Roger was in his prime.

11-09-2010, 06:24 AM
Allez Gasq !!! Time to show your talent and face improved,hard working version of yourself.

11-09-2010, 06:28 AM
Richard has nothing to lose, but probably something to prove to his homecrowd. Roger is playing so well lately, clearly better than Djokovic, and second only to Nadal who is not there. Richard can take one set i think, but he should play a damn good good match!

dodger in 2

Head says Federer, faulty hippocampus says Gasquet.

11-09-2010, 06:49 AM
Fed in two

11-09-2010, 06:56 AM
Should be a good match to watch, all I hope for is Richie to play some of his best tennis, if he loses, so be it.
Roger in 2.

11-09-2010, 07:06 AM
Roger lost to Benny last year, wouldn't be surprised if Richie pulls the upset there but I'm going with the Swiss in straight sets

11-09-2010, 09:06 AM
yes, my two favorites: a win-win-situation for me. if federer isn't tired and plays like he has since wimbledon, he should win this in 2. paris is the only masters were federer hasn't been in final, maybe this time he will take the tournament more seriously (i hope)

11-09-2010, 09:23 AM
Considering Gasquet struggled against Mahut yesterday and Fed's current form, I say Roger destroys Gasquet easily in two.

11-09-2010, 09:53 AM
R.Gasquet in 3.

11-09-2010, 10:02 AM
Gasquet in 2

11-09-2010, 10:24 AM
Gasquet at his best could beat Fed. However, Gasquet is not at his best, he struggled against Mahut yesterday. Fed on the other hand is in a good form these days, and Gasquet is probably tired after the 3 setter yesterday. I say Fed in 2 easy sets.

Hope I'm wrong though.. Allez Richie!

11-09-2010, 10:45 AM
gasquet will lose.
everyone is bending over for fed these days.

11-09-2010, 11:34 AM
Roger's struggled at major tournaments this year. Look for that to continue here as Gasquet pulls an upset in 3.

11-09-2010, 11:55 AM
Fed in two

I agree with you there JM :D

11-09-2010, 11:58 AM
Federer in 3

11-09-2010, 12:29 PM
Gasquet has the tools i guess, not the mind though. As mentioned Fed fell to Benneteau last year so who knows. Dodger seems to be in a good frame of mind at the moment, would love to see 3 consecutive tournament victories.

11-09-2010, 01:04 PM
great match up! can't wait

11-09-2010, 01:29 PM
imagine the headline "Shock-king: Federer choked against Gasquet!"

11-09-2010, 01:38 PM
As Gasquet said he has nothing to lose against Federer.He beat Nicolas but I still hope he will win,it will be very hard though.

11-09-2010, 03:46 PM
Federer said that Richard has what it takes to be top 10 "without a doubt" but he's struggling like many good players because "sport has become much more mental and physical these late years"

11-09-2010, 03:50 PM

Fed says he wants more than QF...

11-09-2010, 04:03 PM
I wonder how Federer could get past Monfils in semis :rolleyes:

11-09-2010, 06:58 PM
Going by recent results,Gasquet will probably get trashed by a 6-2 6-2 type of scoreline.
It will show again that Gasquet has widely regressed for the last 3 years as he was able to regularly give hard matches to a peak Federer 3-4 years whereas now,he'll get trash by a declined Federer who is nowhere near as good as he was beetween 2004 and 2007.

As Gasquet said he has nothing to lose against Federer.He beat Nicolas but I still hope he will win,it will be very hard though.

That just shows the poor mentality of that guy.
Nothing to lose?? because he thinks that on the other hand,Federer has anything to lose,he who has already won everything???:rolleyes:
If anything,the one who has everything to lose beetween those 2 is Gasquet.
Federer has nothing to prove contrary to Gasquet who has not even proved he could win an ATP 500,let alone a MS or a GS.

11-09-2010, 09:22 PM
Federer's FH and BH def. Gasquet's BH 6-4, 6-4

11-09-2010, 09:26 PM
Honestly couldn't care less who won, though I will be rooting for Gasquet.

So Gasquet in 3. Allez!

11-09-2010, 10:27 PM
Federer has never cared about Bercy, so Coke might just get his head out of his ass for this one and score a few games.

11-09-2010, 10:32 PM
The maestro in 2 easy sets.

11-10-2010, 12:18 AM
I don't care. I like both players :wavey:
I like watching Roger and Gasquet is mon chouchou :worship:

Anyway, whoever wins, will lose to stepanek.:p
The worm is on fire.

11-10-2010, 12:38 AM
I like Gasquet, but he hasn't been relevant for like 5 years now, why would things change now?

11-10-2010, 01:29 AM
As long as Federer isn't tired, he should win 6-3 6-4 :shrug:

11-10-2010, 05:35 AM
Federer, 6-4 6-3

11-10-2010, 07:14 PM
Federer's FH and BH def. Gasquet's BH 6-4, 6-4

What do I win? :p

11-10-2010, 07:14 PM
that was like predicting a karlovic match ending 7/6 7/6
