Homegrown Richard Gasquet is trying to make it past the quarterfinals in the French Open for the first time in thirteen attempts. The feisty Frenchman has always had the talent but lacked the consistency to go far in his own nation’s Grand Slam event. Now standing in his way is Andy Murray. Find out how the favored Brit might be in over his head for their matchup on May 31st?
Gasquest’s Day : Time Changes Everything
High profile events used to get the best of Gasquet but time changes everything. Our friends at Streetbettings.com have an excellent piece on how time has changed the landscape of profit in bookmaking. This same march of progress can be seen in Richard this year. Talent with his vast experience has made him into a very reliable entity in this year’s French Open. Even his weakness, first serve, has been coming through. With him firing on all cylinders, the +250 ML wager on this underdog certainly has appeal.
Up and Down Andy
First two rounds here saw him go to the best of five full length. The only reason that he is even in this stage is due to a lot of fortune in the draw. He got to face two big servers who have no footwork on this surface. All he had to do was break them once and they were no match for his ground strokes. So how is he going to handle the man who soundly beat Kei Nishikori in four sets? He regained some of his energy but Andy usually makes it so hard on himself. Clay surface with that drenching on Monday has slowed it down. If it comes down to attrition, Murray does not have much left in the tank to go forward on Tuesday.
Easy money continues to rain down on us here at the French Open. The ML is so heavy on Andy Murray because it factors in the legion of British bettors backing him. It has little to do with the truth of this match. Richard Gasquet is more towards even money than the +250 he is at. APEX Tennis Betting advises our friends to pounce on the Gasquet line. Good fortune to us all and we will see you next time here at APEX Tennis.
