• Gasquet, Monfils in Marseille first round action

    2/19/13 4:33 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Gasquet, Monfils in Marseille first round action Frenchmen Richard Gasquet and Gael Monfils will take the court on Tuesday as round one continues at the Open 13.

    Richard Gasquet vs. Gilles Muller

    Richard Gasquet lost early in Rotterdam last week, but the Frenchman still has an impressive 15-2 record for the year and a pair of titles. He will take on the veteran from Luxembourg, Gilles Muller, who is ranked 70th in the world.

    Gasquet has been steadily climbing the rankings. He sits at No. 10 in the world and he has had a spectacular start to the year.

    Muller is known for his massive first serve, but he is inconsistent from the ground. With the crowd surely backing Gasquet, the Frenchman should get through this one in straight sets.

    Gael Monfils (WC) vs. Marcel Granollers

    Marcel Granollers might be a fortunate first-round opponent for Gael Monfils. The Frenchman, who is just coming back from injury, is ranked 105th in the world, while Marcel Granollers sits at No. 35. Ordinarily this would mean bad news for Monfils, but Granollers has had an abysmal couple of months. He started off with a decent quarterfinal showing in his first tournament of the year, but he's barely won a match since then. He was particularly poor in Spain's Davis Cup encounter against Canada.

    This match is winnable for Monfils. He'll have the backing of the crowd and Granollers isn't particularly great on fast indoor courts.

    Prediction - Monfils for the upset.
