3rd round match with of Richard Gasquet

It was Richard Gasquet with Fernando Verdasco in a 3rd round match that Verdasco over powered Gasquet and sent him back with a third round defeat in the French Open 2014. The score card read 6-2, 6-2 and 6-4.

It was a straight set win match for Verdasco. Gasquet failed to inspire throughout the match. The match did not continue in the same day due to bad light so the match resumed the next day. Richard Gasquet proved no match in front of the Spaniard as he found his rhythm into the match.

Gasquet already had a dismal lead against Verdasco in his previous encounters. Though Richard Gasquet has reached the semi finals of two grand slam twice but failed to break through into the finals. It has been four years since he has been in the ATP Tour. It might be lack of inexperience and less confidence that Gasquet is unable to reach the finals.

The preview of the match between Gasquet and Verdasco also predicted that it would be Verdasco who will emerge victorious. Gasquet’s first two rounds were spectacular and even he was going in with confidence in the third round but unfortunately he suffered defeat in the hands of Fernando Verdasco who proved to be pro on clay court.

His effort was commendable which cannot be denied. Clearly Gasquet was the crowd favorite who was hoping to change things around but in the end the fortunes turned against him and he could not ponder over the situation in spite of getting one night off before the match commenced the next day. It is a matter of luck too as Gasquet has had trouble in reaching the final stage as he gets knocked down earlier than expected. The result got mixed reaction.

Bartoli To Partner Murray In Charity Doubles

If you are a Marion Bartoli fan, there is some good news for you. You will have the opportunity to see your favourite player in action again in a few days’ time. The 2013 Wimbledon Champion is going to participate in a charity mixed doubles match which will take place at Queen’s club on the 15th of this month.

Bartoli will partner the Scottish superstar Andy Murray in that match and the opposing pair will consist of Ross Hutchkins and a player from female category whose name has not been disclosed yet.

The money raised from that match will be given to the Elena Baltacha Tennis Academy.

Elena Baltacha was actually a former British player who passed away some time back. She was suffering from the dangerous disease of cancer. She was just 30 years of age.

So, this charity match is going to be organized in her memory.

Bartoli has not played any professional match after announcing her retirement last year. She had shocked the entire tennis world by that announcement as nobody was expecting her to hang the racquets after achieving glory in the Wimbledon Championships. But, she decided to quit because of her fitness issues and since then, she hasn’t been seen on the court playing any kind of match.

Talking about Baltacha the other day, the Frenchwoman said, “She was one of my good buddies and that’s why I am looking to do whatever I can to raise money for her academy.”

“She herself was a very helpful human being. She was always ready to do things for the other people. So, it’s really nice to see people coming forward and trying to help her academy. That would make her happy wherever she is.”

Baltacha had retired from professional tennis last year.

BARTOLI vs GASQUET

Marion Bartoli’s countryman, Richard Gasquet, will take on the former World no. 1 Roger Federer in the pre quarter final round of the ongoing Sony Open tennis tournament.

Both the players are in red hot form which has made this match a really interesting prospect.

There are 13 matches played between Gasquet and Federer on the tour so far out of which the former has won only two and neither of those two wins has come on quick surfaces. Both of them have come on slow, clay courts.

But, one must admit that the time has changed now. Federer is no longer unbeatable which he used to be 3 years back. Yes, he has been back in form this season, but, he is still some distance away from his best which means he can be brought under pressure.

Off course, the past record plays a little bit in the minds of the players, but, that’s not everything. The current form is what matters the most.

Speaking in the pre match press conference, Federer also admitted that the match was going to be pretty difficult for him.

The Swiss maestro who is the 5th ranked player in the world at this point of time said, “Richard is a class act and he always seems to have that extra time while playing the shots. He doesn’t have too many weaknesses.”

“I don’t think that the surface over here is that quick and that’s something which he would like. The wind will also be there. So, overall, I would say it’s a tough challenge for me. But, hopefully, all go well.”

Federer’s performance on his serve in his last match was just outstanding. It was after a while that he served with such dominance. Gasquet was not too behind either though. He had also banged in a good number of aces against Kevin Anderson in the Round of 32. So, the stage is set for an exciting contest.
