David Goffin vs Richard Gasquet
David Goffin will play against Richard Gasquet in the first round in the Shanghai – Masters and we got accurate tennis prediction for the match. The game is on Tuesday, 8 October and will not start before 4:00 UK.
David Goffin world number 15 took part in Asia in Tokyo at the Japan Open. There in the 1st round, he got through Pablo Carreno-Busta after 3 sets win but the result in the last set was 6-0. Then in the round of 16 his next opponent was Denis Shapovalov and even that he won 2:0 it wasn’t easy at all and both sets end up after tiebreak. In the quarterfinal, the player from Belgium got his easiest match in Tokyo after faced Hyeon Chung and won 6-2, 6-2. Unfortunately for Goffin in the semifinal, he played against world number 1 Novak Djokovic who beat him 6-3, 6-4 and then won the title after beating in the final John Millman. However, this was a great tournament for David who lost his first match at Metz before that and now will have a lot of confidence in Shanghai.
Richard Gasquet world number 42 who’s highest rank once was 7 preferred to play in Beijing before the Masters. He will not remember the tournament in China before he lost in the 1st round Dominic Thiem who is his defense later won the tournament after beating in the final Stefanos Tsitsipas. Before flying to Asia Gasquet played at home in Metz where he won in the 1st round against Marcel Granollers-Pujol but in the 2nd even he was favorite against Benoit Paire lost in 3 sets. In the US Open, the French also doesn’t achieve anything worth mentioning after a loss in the 1st round from Matteo Berrettini.
The two players had 3 matches against each other and Goffin won 2 of them. Their last game was recently in Cincinnati in the semifinal and the player from Belgium won 2:0. They also played in Tokyo 2017 and again David Goffin won that match with 2:0 in the quarterfinal. The only win of Gasquet was in Montpellier 2018 with 2:1 in the semifinal. In the upcoming match, I have no other choice than going with Goffin who is in great shape, won both matches on hard against Gasquet who in the last tournament lose early.
