Mikhail Youzhny Vs Richard Gasquet 10-26-2012 0 views

I think bookies are overvestimating Gasquet in here, it's true that the frenchman needs to win in order to keep his chances to enter in London Masters but the fact is I don't really think he's one of the best 8 players in ATP right now.
Gasquet has not been good in my opinion in the last tournaments, since his title in Bangkok, which I'd like to mention he didn't deserve, he hasn't been able to win 3 games in a row, in Beijing he lost in his match against Zhang, in that game Gasquet was below 1.1 odds so you can imagine the level of Zhang. This loss could be justified by tiredness but then in Shangai Masters lost against Stepanek in straight sets with a double 6-4. Now he's at Basel and he has won both matches against Haase and Chiudinelli really easy, he lost the first set against Haase but he was able to cameback without big troubles, but the fact is that this two matches don't seem enough to take some conclusions, I think those two opponents had very lower level and Gasquet won without doing anything special, his match against Stepanek for example seems more conclusive, the frenchman is having troubles against tough opponents and I think Youzhny is a really tough one.
Also we have to add that Youzhny is playing great lately, he choked in the Asian tour but in Stockholm he improved his level, he won really easy his first two matches and then in his loss against Berdych he deserved better luck, specially in the second set in which he dominated the game but got nervous in the deciding tie break.
I think we're gonna see a balanced match but sincerely looking at recent games of both I believe Youzhny should be favourite in this game
I agree with this and expect Youznny to win as well. Gasquet has played a lot this year and seems tired to me. Add in head 2 head match ups, where Youznny leads 4-2 all time. I also like the +22.5 games as well (not up on 5dimes or PM yet)
