Gasquet has looked good and he will back himself to go past Federer. However, even after not being at his best, Federer scored 16 aces in comparison to Mannarino’s 5 in his last game and did just 3 double faults as compared to Mannarino’s 6 which suggests that he still can bamboozle the best in business. This promises to be a nail-biter.
