The first round of Wimbledon. Two great French players will face off against each other at the opening round and the battle should definitely be an exciting one to watch. To have more insights on this ATP Lucas Pouille vs Richard Gasquet match please check out the preview below.

 

Lucas Pouille

25 years old Lucas currently ranked 28th overall. Pouille has still not found any consistency as we can still see him looking like a different person in various games. It’s always hard to predict if he is going to finally show up or will have an early upset once again as often happens this season. Anyway really skilled players like Pouille mostly shine on a bigger stage and Wimbledon is definitely a one where he must show off. Pouille is an average player on grass overall but as mentioned before, he can definitely go far at any tournament if he finds the right rhythm. Pouille dropped out of Wimbledon in R64 last year and an early round exit this year as well would let many people give up their hopes for him.

 

Richard Gasquet

33 years old 46th ranked Gasquet is slowly but surely finding his form back. He’s only played 12 matches this season and won 7 of them including 4 on the grass. Injuries were not allowing him to have any deeper runs this season so far until the grass season started and now he’s looking much better. Gasquet reached a semi-final in Hertogenbosch where he fell short against Thompson. He’ been a great player on grass ground throughout his career by winning 76 out of 112 matches played. Gasquet dropped out of Wimbledon in R128 last year and there is no doubt he will give his best to avoid one more early exit and to prove himself as one of the best grass players by showing off at Wimbledon.
