Jordan Thompson vs Richard Gasquet – Match Predictions

ATP Mallorca is one of the tournaments in the last week before Wimbledon. Check out our daily tennis picks.

Richard Gasquet to win

Thompson is much younger that Gasquet and is still in his prime which cannot be said about the Frenchman. They both won at least one title this year so there is no doubt they will be competitive in Mallorca. They both see a chance to win at the Spanish island as the competition is not as strong as the previous tournaments. Anyway, Gasquet is the better one on grass and will win this one despite the odds going in Thompson’s favor.

Total sets 3

Both players are trying to move forward in the ATP rankings as they are far from their career best. Two of their previous three matches went all the way to the third set tie break so they will probably play a long one again.
