Musetti has had a decent season so far, but his results on hardcourts haven’t been that impressive. In the Australian Open, he had an exit in the first game. The Italians then made early exits from Dubai, Indian Wells and Miami. In his recent run in the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati, Musetti lost to eventual champion Borna Coric in the first round in a straight set. With the US Open just around the corner, he’ll be looking to find some form with a good run in this tournament.
Whereas this will be Richard Gasquet’s first hardcourt tournament. He started this tournament on a good note as he defeated Kamil Majchrzak in the first round of the tournament with ease 6-7,6-2,1-0. But Majchrzak got injured in the third set and couldn’t continue the match, leading to a walkover win.

Lorenzo Musetti vs Richard Gasquet
Musetti has had a better season than Gasquet, but his hard court record hasn’t been that great. Both possess a single-handed backhand and use it to their total capacity to defeat their opponent.
Musset’s main focus throughout the game would be to bring down the Frenchman’s forehand. At the same time, Gasquet’s game is more versatile so he will have the upper hand.
This might be the first tournament Gasquet had in a hardcourt since the grass season. But his experience would help him win this match.
Prediction:- Richard Gasquet to win in three sets
