Rafa on facing Gasquet:

I have been playing great. I think I am practising well, too. I think I am ready to compete.

The numbers do not look good for Gasquet because Rafa has won 14 straight matches against the Frenchman and has not lost a set to him since 2008. Their last meeting came in 2015 at the Swiss Indoors Basel.

Rafa has four titles this year, including his historic “La Décima” at the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell, Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters and Roland Garros. He has reached three other finals, including the Australian Open, the Miami Open and the Abierto Mexicano Telcel in Acapulco. He leads the ATP World Tour with seven final appearances.

While our champ won in Cincinnati in 2013, he lost in the third round in 2015 and 2016.

Good luck & Vamos Rafa!
