Our main favorite for the title was far from impressive in his quarterfinals match. Find out who is that player and what is our ATP Stockholm semifinals top tennis pick for this Saturday.

Jack Sock (7) vs Richard Gasquet (2)
Jack Sock will fight for a place in his second career final after winning Houston trophy earlier this year. Despite being American, Sock game is more effective on clay where his heavy forehand spin makes a huge damage.

Jack is a tremendous fighter and showed that in his quarterfinals match against Gilles Simon, the French had many chances but just could not take advantage of them. Jack saved 13 of 16 break points, converted 4 of 6 and came back from 2 – 5 on 2nd set to win 7 – 6.

We selected Gasquet as our main contender for the title and as the top play for quarterfinals; however the French was absolutely terrible in his quarterfinals match against Jeremy Chardy.

Richard lost the first set 2 – 6 against Jeremy and was just too passive, allowing Chardy to take control of the rallies with his forehand. Gasquet managed to win the match on third set tiebreak, but the reality is that Chardy was the one who lost that match with several unforced errors.

They played few months ago, in Washington, where Sock emerged victorious 6–7 7–6 6–4. Gasquet was leading by a set and break, but he was just too poor mentally and allowed Sock to turn the match.

The French played incredibly passive and he’ll have to be much more aggressive if he wants to win against Sock. The American was also far from solid but showed tremendous determination in his victory against Simon.

This should be a very close contest and a third set might be needed to find the winner. Gasquet crossed backhand can make huge damage on Sock however the French has to be aggressive otherwise Sock will take control of the rallies with the forehand and can be extremely dangerous.
