    I believe Federer is playing Gasquet at next round of Halle(?).
    Has Gasquet fully recovered from injury ?

    Gasquet's game is fit for grass but i will be shocked if Fed doesnt win in straight sets.

    Fed could be mentally tired.We could see an upset but i doubt it.I wanna see Safin vs Fed in the next round.

    Gasquet has big loopy swing which needs to be adjusted.
    But I think he is still dangerous on any surface.

    I think he is physically tired too. He made great efforts in this year's
    clay season to beat Nadal. I think he put much more efforts than
    previous years. Actually, he looked tired at FO final already...

    If Safin wins his next match against Rochus, we'll see Federer vs Safin as well.

    Gasquet hasn't been able to find form lately so I'd go with Federer in straight sets.

    Even with that easy when for Gasquet over Bastl your confidence over all has got to be low. If Gasquet get's down a couple of games expect a mental breakdown from the french men

    Same here. I wanna see Richard winning more often. :-| He's got so much talent and a beautiful all-surface game.

    An upset?? According to atp.com, these two only played each other three times, with federer having a slight 2-1 lead. Gasquet is destructive on clay....

    They never met on grass. Gasquet's 1st and only ATP title
    was at Nortingham on grass... If Gasquet finds some form of 2005,
    it could get interesting. At least Gasquet might learn a lot
    from the best grass court player of this generation...

    I told you guys. It would be interesting.
    It looks like Gasquet has a chance to beat him in the future...
