13:00 – Mathieu v Gicquel
Rankings are 33 and 63. Head to heads are 3-1 to Mathieu.
Mathieu was solid yesterday and I would expect him to win again today. The last time they met was just last month and Mathieu won in straight sets.
He wins 78% of service games, as does his opponent. Gicquel retired early in the Kremlin Cup so may not be back to full strength.
Back Mathieu on serve.
Update: Mathieu’s head wasn’t right for this match. Gicquel won 6-4, 6-0.
