Roger Federer Form


Roger Federer was lucky in some ways to get through his first-round Wimbledon match against Adrian Mannarino. Federer trailed by two sets to one and was being outplayed by the French veteran, who coaxed plentiful errors out of Federer with his diverse ground game.

However, Federer turned the match around in the fourth set and was already dominating when Mannarino slipped on the grass and hurt his knee. Mannarino subsequently retired at the beginning of the fifth set and Federer progressed 6-4, 6-7(3), 3-6, 6-2 (ret).

After his 1-1 Halle campaign, which saw him fade badly against Felix Auger-Aliassime after taking the first set, Federer is clearly rusty. He has played only a handful of matches in the past 18 months after undergoing two knee surgeries. But his serve can keep him in most matches, especially on this surface.

Richard Gasquet Form


He may be four years younger than Federer, but Richard Gasquet is definitely on the downslope of his career.

The former world no. 7 has a great Wimbledon record, but has lost in the first round for the past three years. He is 11-8 in 2021, and eight of those eleven wins have come against players ranked outside the top 100. 

Gasquet warmed up for Wimbledon by playing the Nottingham Challenger where he lost in the quarterfinals to world no. 195 Alex Bolt. He beat world no. 110 Yuichi Sugita 7-6(4), 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 to reach the second round at Wimbledon for the first time since 2016.

Verdict

Richard Gasquet has never posed a serious challenge to Roger Federer on grass or hard courts and his form is not good. Despite Federer’s own lack of match fitness, it seems likely that he will maintain dominance over Gasquet.
