Roland Garros R3: What time does Rafael Nadal play against Richard Gasquet?

On Saturday, Rafael Nadal will play his third round match at the French Open in Paris. His opponent will be world No. 32 Richard Gasquet.

Date: June 2, 2018

Match time: Rafa is fourth match on Court Philippe-Chatrier, meaning that he should be in action sometime around 4 PM local time / 10 AM EDT –  New York, Montreal / 3 PM BST – United Kingdom / 4 PM  CET – Spain, France, Germany, Italy / midnight AEST – Melbourne.

Rafa on playing Richard:

I have a great relationship with him always. Since we were kids. We met each other first time when we were 12. First thing is he’s a very good person, no?

He’s a very normal guy. We practiced hundreds of times together. He came to Mallorca. Yeah, he is one of the guys on the tour that creates good atmosphere. He always has a positive attitude. Not creating no one problem and being a normal person, no? I like him a lot.

And, yes, will be a good match against a good friend in the most important place in my career, and for him a very special place, too.

Richard:

A lot of people were expecting this match, third round, 33 degrees.

He was not the same player as in Monaco, he was playing very fast. So when I left the match, I was with my father at this time, I said, ‘He’s going to win and he might win a lot of Grand Slams behind that, because he was incredible’.

I didn’t think he would win 10 times, but I knew he would win five or six.

I have known him for a long time. I have known him since he and I were young. I appreciate him a lot. Well, we all know what kind of champion he is, but I want to go there and to do my best. It’s a great draw for me. It will be on the centre court. There will be people. I intend to have a good match.

The numbers do not look good for Gasquet because Rafa has won 15 straight matches against the Frenchman and has not lost a set to him since 2008.

If Rafa he wins the opening two sets against Gasquet, he will have won his past 33 sets in Paris and will have broken his previous longest streak of 32, set in 2007-09. Only Bjorn Borg owns a longer streak at Roland Garros: 41 consecutive sets from 1979-81.

Good luck and Vamos Rafa!

    What a lovely picture of a young Rafa and a Richard I’m sure it brings back some special and fun memories of their childhood and teenage years on tour.
    I hope you both have a great match tomorrow , but of course Rafa can be the only winner.

    You have Rafa’s match listed as second in the intro, but then correctly have it as third on Chatrier. Rafa never takes any match for granted and neither should his fans.
