Richard Gasquet vs. Alexander Zverev (3)

Richard Gasquet was only 15 when he won his first tour-level match at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters in 2002. Sixteen years later, Gasquet became the first Frenchman in the Open Era to win 500 matches on the ATP World Tour. Known as one of the most talented players in tennis history, the 31-year-old continues his quest for a first Masters 1000 title. Looking now at Richard’s campaign on this event, the world No.34 reaches this stage of the competition after a 6 – 2 7 – 5 win over Mischa Zverev.

Alexander Zverev advanced to the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters quarterfinals for the first time in his career. The No.3 seed overcame a tough three-set battle against his fellow German Jan-Lennard Struff in the previous round. Playing on the big stage brings the best out of Zverev with the 20-year-old winning 74.19% of the matches played in ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events over the last 12 months. Adding to this, Zverev became also the first player outside the ‘Big Four’ to win multiple Masters 1000 titles in the same season since David Nalbandian in 2017.

This will be the 5th career meeting between these two players with Zverev leading on the h2h by 3 – 1.

As the h2h suggests, Alexander is a terrible match-up for Gasquet. In addition to Zverev’s lead on the h2h, the German won all their last three official encounters on the ATP World Tour. Moreover, the slow court conditions in the Monte Carlo Country Club should benefit Zverev on this contest. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of the value on Alexander’s tennis betting odds by adding the German’s moneyline to your betting picks.
