Richard Gasquet Playing for Second Title in 2013
 
Richard Gasquet is 13-1 in 2013 and will meet 6 ft.5 in. Benoit Paire in the Montpellier final. This looks like a good opportunity for Gasquet to pick up another title against an opponent with alot less big-match experience. Gasquet brings with him the advantage of being a top French player for several years and probably a player Paire has looked up to in many respects. I'm giving Gasquet 4/1 to lift the trophy.

Agreed, and very impressive start to the year for Gasquet.

Great start for Richie.........first time in years he is actually playing smart and winning the matches he is supposed too. The whole French contingent looking loos....LaMonf, Simon and Tsonga playing well, Paire the baby of the group seems to be making nice strides as well.

For Richie it seems finally a strong hand by coach Ricarrdo Piatti is paying off......

Attitude towards each game of Gasquet has been changed since this year.
Sure he is talented, and he is more concentrating. Will see how it results.

Id love him to step up and challenge for a major.

Tammo 02-09-2013 01:18 PM

Richie looking good, will win RG

Hope he wins. I would want him to beat the top 8 tho' to contend for the GS and Masters 1000

Great, he just need a step closer to the baseline

I said it last year and I will; say it again: Gasquet is about to break through. He is going to leave Tsonga and Tipsarevic in his wake. He will win an MS this year, mark my words.

Paire getting wrecked.

It's possible, Paire isn't that tough of an opponent but Gasquet is playing great today, hope to see him make it to WTF this year.

Richard's backhand as ridiculous as always.

zagor 02-10-2013 05:20 AM

Serve and volley to save the MP.

Title #2 for Ritchie this year.

xan 02-10-2013 05:49 AM

Forgive me for my lack of knowledge here, but how is gasquet on clay throughout his career? Does he enjoy the red stuff?

impressive start for richie with titles at doha and montpellier !
15-1 so far this year (losing to tsonga at the AO)

for the moment tsonga is the only player of the top 30 he had to play, but still... it can only be good for his confidence. :)
