Our prediction: more than 19.5 games, more than 8.5 games in the 1st set and 1-1 after two games during Gasquet – Thiem (1.80 via My Match)
It is very difficult to predict this meeting between Richard Gasquet (85th in the world) and Dominic Thiem (182nd) in Metz. The Frenchman, despite his age, has been in pretty good shape since Roland-Garros (13 wins for 6 losses) but he may have difficulty following up. For his part, the former world number 3 is trying to return to a better level and remains on a lost final during the Rennes challenger against Humbert. Although I would give a slight advantage to Richard (1.84), I prefer to offer you a scenario for a very similar odds via a My Match… without giving a winner: 1-1 after two games, more than 8.5 games in the first set and more than 19.5 games in the match (1.80). We can indeed expect a disputed meeting between two players who have shone in the past. One wants to stay at a good level despite being 36 years old and the other wants to get back to the top of the world rankings as soon as possible even if the path still looks long.
