Gasquet vs Murray – Sony Open Tennis – Miami

29/03/2013 | By | Reply More

This is an intruiging match.

Murray will be keen to win this tournament as he will move up to world number two and that will result in some decent seedings, so a big incentive to win.

Gasquet has been playing well so far and will fancy taking the game to Murray at some point you would think. He was at a short price against Rochus, bigger odds against Youzhy, came through a competitive match against Alamgro but sailed through when odds against with Berdych. Curiously the stats show that Gasquet has won both prior hard court encounters with Murray but they were some time ago, 2009 & 2006! Gasquet also has the upper hand in best of three matches. More recently though, Murray won on his least favourite surface at the French Open last year but was defeated in Rome in their prior encounter a few weeks before.  Current ratings on Hard surfaces put Murray well ahead.

Gasquet may put up some resistance in this match, so I think this will create an above average chance of a decent trading opportunity.
