Over the past year and a half, Ymer has become a completely different tennis player. After all, he not only made his debut in the top 100 but also played on fast surfaces, where he had not shown anything before and lost to everyone in a row in the first circles.
Such progress was achieved thanks to the fact that the tennis player began to act more aggressively on the court, more often to seize the initiative and win the draws himself. When something doesn’t work, he can at any moment be reorganized and concentrate on counterattacks, because he boasts a high speed of movement on the court.
Ymer Jr managed to break into the first hundred of the rating. Now the representative of Sweden takes 75th place. Thanks to a stable game, Mikael is able to maintain his position. In Auckland, Montpellier and the Australian Open, he reached the second round of the competition.
Last week, Ymer did not speak, but before that, he went to Montpellier. At that tournament, Mikael went through the first round, beating Jannik Sinner (6-3, 6-4). But in the next match, the Swedish tennis player was defeated by Filip Krajinovic (1-6, 1-6).
Gasquet is already far from 30, he is exhausted by injuries and is thinking about ending his professional career. Despite all this, the representative of France still boasts an incredible one-handed backhand, due to which he not only quickly completes the draws, but also easily holds the ball. However, in other game aspects, the Frenchman noticeably slowed down. This is especially true for speed, endurance, and stability.
Gasquet did not play again for a while due to injury. He spent his first match of the season at a tournament in Montpellier. Despite the lack of playing practice, Richard even won two fights, beating Gilles Simon (6-4, 6-4) and Feliciano Lopez (6-7, 6-4, 6-2).
But in the quarterfinal, the French veteran was unable to oppose anything to Vasek Pospisil. As a result, Gasquet did not finish the meeting, but at that time he was losing 1-6, 0-1.
The tournament in Marseille has a special place in the career of Gasquet. He repeatedly participated in these competitions and achieved certain successes. For example, Richard played here twice in the semifinals and once in the quarter-finals.

Mikael Ymer vs Richard Gasquet Predictions
Mikael Ymer is just young and ambitious. Afroshved has excellent statistics on indoor hard. 63 wins with 28 defeats, but all this is mainly on Challengers. Ymer in Montpellier beat Sinner but then took two games for the match against Krajinovic. Horrible instability. Gasquet beat Simon and Lopez, players of his age two weeks ago. Then Richard lost Pospisil 6-1 in the first set and starred. Now Gasquet is not in good shape and is unlikely to pick her up.
It is worth betting on the Ymer wins.
