At the end of last year, Harris made his debut in the top 100. But so far the tennis player is in no hurry to strengthen his position in the elite, as he has recently been traveling from tournament to tournament and alternating victories with defeats.
And this was to be expected, because the South African is completely dependent on his serve, and if it disappears, then the tennis player can not oppose anything to his rivals. Indeed, in the draws, Lloyd is terrible and barely interrupts the ball through the net, so he acts in an overly aggressive manner (either from one or two hits he hit or not).
Harris started this season pretty well. Before the Australian Open, the South African even reached the final of the competition in Adelaide, where he lost to Andrei Rublev (3-6, 0-6). After that, there was a slight decline in Lloyd’s game. He could not win for almost a month and interrupted his series only in Dubai.
Harris got into the main draw of this tournament from qualification. He overcame it quite easily. First, the representative of South Africa defeated Thomas Fabbiano (5-7, 6-4, 6-3), and then he played only one game in the confrontation with Emil Ruusuvuori. The Finnish tennis player was injured, so Lloyd went further.
The best years of Gasquet are already long ago behind. Indeed, throughout his career, a tennis player received a huge number of injuries, which now more and more often remind of themselves. Richard has always been known for his lightning speed and killer one-handed backhand.
Now he is having difficulty moving around the court, while quickly getting tired. Yes, and in Gask uds there is no longer the strength that was previously, so he invests maximum in lumbago, and this often leads to offensive mistakes.
Gasquet has played just four matches this season. He spent all these fights in his homeland. In Montpellier, Richard managed to beat Gilles Simon (6-4, 6-4) and Feliciano Lopez (6-7, 6-4, 6-2). But after that, he did not finish his match with Vasek Pospisil, and in Marseilles lost to Mikael Ymer (3-6, 6-3, 5-7).
The last time Gasquet successfully performed in Dubai in 2015. Then he got to the quarter finals. After that, the Frenchman did not go further than the first round.

Harris vs Gasquet Predictions
This year, Gasquet has not played open hard yet. In addition, while Richard is far from his optimal playing form and demonstrates a very mediocre game. Harris in Dubai has already managed to pass two rivals, so he does not need a shot to the courts. We believe that Lloyd is more likely to win this match.
- Our prediction: Lloyd Harris Will Win.
