Ancic will win. I hope Gasquet will show some resistance though.
Btw they will play on court 1 :( no tv coverage... :mad:

Ancic easy. Gasquet had never won a match on grass before the tournament started, so I doubt he will take out the "2nd best player on grass".

Ancic in 2 probably. I hope that Richie will fight and learn from that. It's the first real test for him on grass. His 2 first opponents were no world beaters.

Unfortunately, Ancic. I'd be glad if Gasquet upsets him, though. But I don't think his game is strong to beat Ancic on grass.

But then, I've never seen him play outside clay, so I don't know exactly how well he does on faster surfaces.

Gasquet in 3, I think that Richard has the game to win Wimbledon one day in the future.

Gasquet has played really well in his first two matches but he wasn't playing Ancic. If Gasquet can win set #1, I think he'll take it. Either way, I think it will be tight.

Gasquet wasnt too impressive against delgado today (but to be fair, who needs to be against such a weak opponent who doesnt really deserve to be in the event). Delgado gave gasquet no problems! although i wasnt so impressed with gasquet he still steam rolled delgado.

it will be interesting to see what gasquet can do against a very good grass court player, not a useless brit. (in my opinion the best match of the day). I am really looking forward to this match, i will be there early to get my seat on court 1 :cool:

I watched Gasquet againts Tipsarevic...it was first time that i saw him on grass, i he suprised me a bit...He is good player even on this sufrace, but againts Ancic i don`t give him much chance`s. Ancic is obiously improved his return and it will be very hard for any player, not named Fedex, to beat him on grass.

Since I don't see many matches of Gasquet plays on grass but I'd say he will win. I like his style, very french and especially his one-handed backhand is so impressive. He can hit with so many angle and strengh... :)

Players who has one-handed backhand rock!!! :) :P

Mario is certainly the favorite and will likely win, but it wouldn't be that surprising if he didn't.

Ancic's serve is too good on grass. Ancic in 2.

Mario! :banana:

But Richard has been playing really well recently, and I don't know about Mario. But, its grass, and so I would say Mario has the major advanage.

At the lipton I saw Ancic against Haas up as close as you could possibly get (I could touch the players when the walked back to get a towel) and Ancic's serve looked very hard to read or return. I imagine that it would extremely effective on grass, so I'd definitely give the edge.

Gasquet is up 4-1 in the 3rd set. I wish I could see this match. I don't know if Ancic is injured or anything, I expected him to win. I just thought his height would give him the serving advantage.

I like Gasquet's game.
He's definitely got the potential to be a future Wimby champ.

Me, too. Congrats for quite a surprise win and eager to see something from him in the future.

Richard :woohoo: I have to say, I'm surprised he broke Mario's serve so many times. :lol: He proved me wrong, and I lost $3000v but I'm estatic. :p

I've always thougt that Gasquet's game (when on) is perfect for grass. His serve is really good, and his volleys, both BH and FH, are superb. And he is a great returner, taking the ball early. And what to add about his powerful groundies :worship: ? Obviously this is the definition of a great, great player (top 5) which he isn't just yet, but with consistency he'll be the real deal. I hope he progresses adequately.

For me it was a surprise that he started reaping good results on clay, and I think he'll end up with better game on hard and grass.

Anyway good luck, cause I want to keep enjoying your beatiful tennis and nice personality, and keep improving Richie!! :D
