Some facts to get us started:

H2H
Gasquet Blake 2 - 0 (and didn't lose a set)
06 Toronto R32 6:4 6:3
07 Paris R16 6:4 6:4

* Blake is a former finalist here, Richie didn't get pass 4R (lost against Federer in 06, and Roddick in 07)

* matches here so far:
Blake - Gicquel 6:3 6:7 6:1 , Moya 6:3 6:4
Gasquet - Soderling 6:3 6:3, Chela 6:2 6:1

* Gasquet is #7 in Entry, Blake is #8, but in the Race - Blake is #13, Gasquet is #39 :eek:

Logic says Gasquet then. But...

Gasquet in 3 but I hope I'm wrong.

If anything,that's a flattering ranking considering his level of play in the last few months.
The thing with Gasquet is that sometimes he plays quite impressive tennis, but right after that he produces some shitty performance like against Andreev. Losing to Andreev in his present form and with that score is a bit humiliating when you're #7

It all depends on which Richie will show up. It will be Gasquet in 2 or Blake in 3, but I'd pick Gasquet

Gasquet reads Blake's serve very well plus he fancies his flat strokes.

Gasquet in 3.

I think Blake will win in three sets. About time he beats Richard, and he has more success in Indian Wells - should be the push that will make him win.
