It´s quarterfinal time over in paris and it will feature some very exciting names such as Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic. However Stanislas Wawrinka, Tomas Berdych, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are still alive in the tournament and they are looking to join them in the quarterfinals. This means that we might get to see the very elite players of the world in the later stage of this tournament and as such these games will serve as a great preview to help determine on what player to bet on for the ATP London Finals.
For the first quarterfinal the viking has found a nice selection in Richard Gasquet vs Andy Murray, both players have shown a nice shape in the first rounds of the tournament. Gasquet beat Nishikori with 7-6(3) 4-1 to qualify for this quarterfinal. Andy managed to reach the quarters while only dropping 4 games in total for both of his matches.
Richard Gasquet will be coming into this fixture with 4 victories and 1 defeat in his latest 5 matches. Richard’s one loss was with 6-4, 7-6(7) versus Nadal in the ATP Basel semis. Gasquet whom is currently ranked 9th has shown that he has the ability to consistently challenge top-10 players, using his physical strength to fire powerful one-handed backhands.
Andy Murray will be coming into this match with 4 victories and 1 defeat in his latest 5 games. Andy impressed in the first and second round only dropping 4 games in total, defeating Borna Coric with 6-1, 6-2 and then defeating David Goffin 6-1 6-0. Andy is one of the only players that can really challenge Novak Djokovic in a heads up, stakes-high type of game and advancing here will mean that he might get the chance to do so yet again.

Andy Murray and Richard Gasquet have a head to head record of 6-3 in favor of Andy. In fact the last time that Gasquet managed to win versus Murray was at the R16 of the ATP Rome Masters event back in 2012. However all of their head to head games expect their very first meeting have gone to 3 sets so the over 2.5 sets pick holds good value in this fixture.
The viking’s prediction for this fixture is that Andy Murray should win with little struggle. Even though Richard Gasquet is one of the very top players in the world and has shown that he can challenge the top-5, Murray is one level ahead. The viking believes that the only players that have what it takes to challenge Murray in a high stakes situation would be the very top-5 and possibly Nadal and Karlovic.
