14:00 – Gasquet v Murray
Murray leads their previous matches 7-4 (1 walkover each).
Gasquet’s most recent win was in 2012 on clay. Their last match was in August and Murray won in 3 sets on a hard court.
Gasquet beat Nishikori yesterday when Nishikori retired. He had faced a lot of break points and perhaps should have lost that opening set.
Murray hasn’t been messing about this week and hasn’t lost more than 2 games in a set. If Gasquet can serve well he could take this to 3 sets but it’s hard to see Murray losing.
Back Murray if he gets broken first and then Gasquet holds.
20:00 – Wawrinka v Nadal
Nadal leads 13-2 but Wawrinka has won 2 of their last 3. Their most recent meeting was last month on a hard court. Nadal won in 2 sets.
This should be a tight match. Three sets look likely.
Back Nadal if he gets broken first. He dropped a set to Anderson yesterday.
Wawrinka has won both his matches in 2 sets. He seems to have been doing just enough to get through. That often means he is focused on having a good week.
Nadal in 3 sets.
