19:00 – Robredo v Gasquet
Rankings are 40 and 30. head to heads are 2-1 to Robredo although they haven’t played since 2007.
Robredo has continued his run of form and has yet to lose a set here.
Gasquet had a real fight against Mathieu and had to come back from a set down, winning both the second and third sets in tie breaks.
Both player’s stats look similar over the last 3 months with them holding serve 82% and 84%. They convert 37%/35% of break point chances.
I think Gasquet will have the edge due to playing in front of his home crowd and he is stronger on fast courts.
Back Gasquet on serve.
Update: Gasquet won 7-6, 7-6.
