Simon did not have many fights this season. In four games played, the Frenchman won two victories. At the ATP Cup, Simon defeated Lloyd Harris (2-6, 6-2, 6-2) and in the first round of the Australian Open he defeated Pablo Cuevas (6-1, 6-3, 6-3).
In Melbourne, Gilles sheathed a racket in the second round of the competition, where he lost in four games to Nick Kyrgios (2-6, 4-6, 6-4, 7-5).
For Gasquet, the upcoming match against Simon will be the first in the current season. The last time Richard went to court last October was when he lost to Roberto Bautista Agut (2-6, 6-4, 3-6) in three games in the second round of the tournament in Basel.
Such a long break is associated with a knee injury, due to which Gasquet had to withdraw from Australian Open. So for now it’s not even clear whether Richard is ready for high-level games.
Statistics and personal meetings
- For personal meetings leads Gasquet with a score of 9-2.
- Gasquet has not gone to court since last October.
Gasquet convincingly leads in personal meetings with Simon with a score of 9-2, but it is difficult to say in which physical form Richard is now. He did not go to court due to a knee injury since last October, therefore, we propose to put Gilles to victory, who has already held four fights this season.
- Our prediction is the victory of Gilles Simon
