Probably the most exciting match of tennis of the week between those two players who have pleasant tennis.
Gasquet leads clearly the head-to-head by 4-0 but I think time has come for the japanese to finally take his revenge.
Gasquet isn't on his top of confidence this season and simply doesn't play at his best level, couple of injuries can explain that, but the main explanation is his wrong choice of coach to substitute his previous one Piatti, indeed he chose Sergi Bruguera, and it was pretty sure for me (and especially all the french specialists as former tennis pro players) that it would be a mess because Gasquet is great when he forced himself to play an offensive tennis but he is more weaker when he stays one or two meters behind his baseline and simply distributes shots because he doesn't have the mental and stamina to do it like the spanish by example. Unfortunately this is why he tries to work with Bruguera instead of working to force himself to attack and so far his results aren't good.
Here he won very comfortably and easily his previous rounds but he met two players (Sela and Smyczek) who are too weak to bother him.
It's not the case of Nishikori of course who is now a top player very closed to enter top 10, he is doing so far his best season and even if he dropped a set on his two previous rounds, I saw the match against Querrey and I think that he is at his best level here and without his back's problems.
And if he keeps that level, I am convinced that he will take advantage of the lack of confidence of Gasquet and his wrong choice of tennis's strategy.
So I think that Nishikori will finally beat Gasquet, I try his win in 2 sets.
