Rogers Cup 2014 R3: Andy Murray vs. Richard Gasquet

Quote

Andy stormed into his campaign in Toronto with a sensational performance against Nick Kyrgios that lasted just under an hour. Beating him handily 6-2 6-2. The hard work continues for the Scot in the next round as he faces a familiar foe in the shape of flamboyant Frenchman Richard Gasquet, who like Murray has not had a notable season, battling a back injury at the beginning of the year which ruled him out of most events up until the French Open. However, Gasquet has reached two finals this year in Montpellier and Eastbourne, as well as a semi final appearance in Washington just last week, meaning he is showing signs of form coming into this encounter.

Murray and Gasquet have played on eight occasions in the past, with Murray leading a very tight head to head of 5-3.

They played each other on Hard court last year and Andy came out on top. Richard is finding form and can play inspiring tennis at times. Good that Andy gets a renowned opponent early on, we may see his mettle tested.

Gasquet had a tough 3-setter against Karlovic, and another toughie in the doubles, so might be a little tired tomorrow, although if this is a night match he could have recovered by then.  Hope so because Andy could do with a bit of a test, especially with Djoko looming in the QF should both get there.


EDIT - Andy 3rd on Centre Court after Wawrinka/Anderson and Djokovic/Tsonga, so estimated time 8:00pm BST.

If Andy can play like yesterday, and in particular serve like yesterday, I'm confident he can beat Gasquet again.  But every day is a new day and it could be a tight match,  So I think I'll vote Andy in 3 again.  And yes I'll yell for you bbh.   yahooo
