Bjorn Fratangelo v Richard Gasquet Live
Richard Gasquet will take on Bjorn Fratangelo in their second round match of the French Open. The latter will need to dig very deep in order to win this game in spite of having age on his side.
Bjorn Fratangelo gets his first name from tennis champion Bjorn Borg, some shoes to fill! Bjorn Fratangelo took four sets to go past his first round opponent Sam Querrey. He beat his fellow American opponent on this night 6-1,6-3,4-6,6-3. The 22 year old will not find it easy given that his opponent is not only more experienced and overall a better player, but will also have the crowd support against him. Bjorn Fratangelo will be highly motivated as he has never reached the third round of a grand slam in his career. Richard Gasquet eased past Thomaz Bellucci 6-1,6-3,6-4 in the first round. Many would look at the score line and say that he barely broke a sweat. He will certainly find it harder to go past in this round than he did in the first round. The home crowd will however spur him on.
He has been playing impressive tennis over the last few grand slams making it to the quarters in one and the semis in the other. We can expect Richard Gasquet to go through to the next round, but everyone likes a hard fought game and an early upset.
