Murray is ranked second in the ATP rankings and Gasquet twelfth, but when they meet they look like two of the best matched players in the world.
Gasquet is depending on his home Parisian crowd to help take him to the Semi-Finals. He is looking for the same energy that took him past his last-16 opponent, Kei Nishikori on the sold-out Philippe Chartrier Court. “The crowd is always important. Like a Davis Cup match for me. It’s always important to have the crowd cheering for you... and I admit it made a big difference for me at the Davis Cup."
Murray is ready for the Frenchman and actually holds a perfect 4-0 record against Gasquet in all Grand Slam evets. Murray has breezed past the competition in this year's Roland Garros, but knows that beginning I the Quarter-Finals the actions starts to get more intense and the condition of each player begins to show. Murray is in great shape, but so is Gasquet. It will be quite an interesting eleventh meeting between the two.
Murray will out-last Gasquet but he will need to go five sets to get the win. It's going to be a tight and super intriguing match.
