The 35-year-old Gasquet is still capable of playing quality tennis, even against younger and more mobile opponents.
For example, in the first round of the current competition, Richard quite confidently dealt with Mikael Ymer in two sets (6-4, 7-5). Last week, the French veteran participated in the home tournament in Montpellier, where he submitted to the quarterfinals. In Marseille, Gasquet’s best result so far is the semi-final.

Before the start of the season, we recall that Andrey had been ill with the coronavirus and was forced to miss the ATP Cup in Sydney.
Therefore, the first tournament of the year for the Russian was the Australian Open, where he managed to get only to the third round. But last week, Rublev managed to reach the quarterfinals in Rotterdam, where he lost in three sets to Felix Auger Aliassime (7-6, 4-6, 2-6), the future winner of the competition.
Gasquet is in good shape and may well impose a fight on Rublev in the upcoming meeting. However, in a recent match against Mikael Ymer, the French tennis player left a lot of strength on the court, so it is unlikely that Richard will have the energy to play another long match, especially against Rublev. Our prediction – total under 22 games at odds of 1.77.
Rublev is the favourite of the meeting and, most likely, will confirm this status. Once in Marseille, Andrei reached the quarterfinals. Now the Russian is in good shape, so he may well repeat that result. We bet on the victory of Rublev in the upcoming confrontation. So, the second prediction is Rublev’s victory with a handicap (-4.5) of the game for a coefficient of 1.96.
