With Richard Gasquet’s odds now north of $2.30, I am comfortable to bite here.
Gasquet leads the head to head 2-1 in this match-up, however I think when you look at the styles of both players this match-up heavily favours Gasquet. Humbert got the better of this match-up in Melbourne earlier this year, with Gasquet backing up from his Auckland title from a few days earlier. Humbert had Covid when they met the previous year, however it doesn’t change my thoughts on the style match-up. The left-handed Humbert’s serve works so well against right handers with deficiencies in their backhand, but that certainly isn’t the case for Gasquet.
The win over Wawrinka was solid from Humbert, however this looks to be a slight overreaction in looking at the odds. Nothing groundbreaking, but I’m comfortable making a 1 unit selection on Gasquet as an underdog.
