Over 5 sets on grass? lol

Don't let some result in a MM match fool you. Unlike that match Murray will be super up for it tomorrow.

Sadly for Simon, the planets are no longer aligned, and his wonderful time in Rotterdam is just a memory. Regardless, I'm fairly certain they are playing Richie, the wimbledon 2015 semifinalist.

No, Simon has won his match against Ward, beat Murray this year and is the strongest mentally of all the french players, they are no reason to not play him. Gasquet will play against Ward if needed.

No, he can't. If France play him, they're basically forfeiting the tie and Clement should be sacked with immediate effect.

Gasquet has to play this rubber, he'll probably lose too but at least he has a puncher's chance, Simon has 0 chance.

Yes Simon is stronger mentally, but the fact that he won at Rotterdam doesn't suddenly erase the match-up issue. This is not Rotterdam anymore, it's a BO5 match, it's grass, it's an important DC tie.
Gasquet game-wise can trouble him more. Of course for that he will need to play his A game and to not fold under pressure...

Anyway we will see what Clement has decided tomorrow, our chances are slim anyway...
