It will be the first match of this MC.
Finally we have a match beetween them on another surface than Clay!
Considering their respective forms at the moment,i would say Gasquet in three.

I'd have to go with you richie21. I think he will beat Nadal and Djokovic. Ferrer is a problem, but I expect him to get to the semifinals and win the whole thing.

Nadal 6-2 6-3. Gasquet's first TMC match and he'll be nervous for sure.

I don't think he'll be more nervous than in the crucial match he played against Murray last week for example.
He had far more pressure against Murray(especially playing in Paris) than he'll have in this MC.

The crowd gave him pressure and motivation. There'll just be pressure in Shanghai. :shrug:

I think there is more pressure on Nadal and the other players, as even Gasquet himself never really expected to make it this far. Expect Gasquet to start off nervously as always, and then find his way thereafter.

Nadal in 2. Nadal will never lose to someone who plays 10ft behind the baseline.

But you probably saw Nadal against Baghdatis. Baggy had a chance but lost it. I don't think Gasquet has no chance at all, but he needs to do something he hasn't done against top players (mentality I guess) if he badly wants to beat him.

It will depend on which Richard will show up. He will have to be really aggressive if he wants to have a chance. Good luck Rich!
