Bercy 2015 day 4: Gasquet defeats Nishikori
The first set between Gasquet and Nishikori was without a doubt the best I’ve watched so far this week, with beautiful rallies and winners from both players. Gasquet had to save a few break points at 5-5, but won the set 7-6(3). Nishikori then received some treatment on court and retired after Gasquet’s double break in the second set. The Frenchman now leads their head-to-head 6-0.
Gasquet, who looked relaxed and happy to play in front of the French crowd, will next face Andy Murray, who demolished David Goffin 6-1 6-0 earlier in the day.
