Beijing R2: Zhang def. Gasquet 6-4 3-6 6-4
 
Upset :yeah:

Zhang has a pretty powerful game. Good serve, great backhand, decent forehand. Lacks touch at the net.

Gasquet was 2-0 up in the third and 40-0 up in his last service game. Stupid tactics from him, he was successful when he was rushing Zhang and also hitting low slices to him. For some reason decided to moonball most of the time.

Well, this is what can be called a major upset even knowing Gasquet ability to play bad matches. But at the same time great day for Ze Zhang and the whole mens tennis in China.

Early loss the week after he wins a title. Vintage Gasquet.

:mad:

With both Monaco and Almagro losing early in Tokyo, this was a great chance to enter the (race) top 10.

What a match by Zhang :worship: Never lost belief, fought till the end, went for his shots, and got rewarded. Well done!

Watched the whole match. Gasquet played the 1st set very passively, didn't try to create anything, was probably thinking that Zhang will break down by himself. It didn't happen, and amazingly Zhang managed to break at 4:4. Had some troubles with finishing it off, by letting 40/0 lead to slip away, when serving for the set, but got the job done with 4th set point. In the 2nd set Gasquet stepped up, started to play more aggressively, got a break immediately and held it till the end. Gasquet started the 3rd set very positively as well, broke Zhang in 1st game, but then for some reason he returned to a more passive gameplan and didn't change it till the end of the match.

The more attacking player won. Gasquet had all the chances to create problems to Zhang, just lure him to the net, play some shorter balls, try to boss some points, as Zhang was struggling, when Gasquet added more pace to his shots. But he did almost none of that, and very deserved loss.
