Dominic Thiem – Andy Murray Match Prediction | 04-10-2019 22:00

Gasquet defeated Kei Nishikori at the Rogers Cup. While Murray was not at full fitness, Gasquet still showed his class as he made few mistakes. On the other side of the coin, Richard Gasquet defeated Andy Murray in straight sets in the previous round. Richard Gasquet won 90% of his service games and 3 return games to secure a comfortable win. Prior to arriving at the Cincinnati Master, Gasquet played at the Rogers Cup where he made the third round.

Since Wimbledon, Dominic Thiem has a record of 8-2 including winning the Austrian Open. Dominic Thiem enters this tournament in decent form following a relatively successful Rogers Cup. Thiem made the quarterfinals of the Rogers Cup where he defeated the likes of Denis Shapovalov and Marin Cilic. Dominic Thiem will begin his tournament in the second round after receiving an opening-round bye due to his high seeding. Thiem was eliminated by Daniil Medvedev. Dominic Thiem has a decent record at the Cincinnati Masters as he has made the quarterfinals of this tournament twice.

Found the story interesting?

For want of a maverick result, Richard Gasquet has the game to take this to a decider. Richard Gasquet has not lost to Dominic Thiem in two career meetings and both of those wins have come on hard courts, but these players are a significant two years older now. Thiem is a difficult player to predict at the moment, although the Austrian won the high profile hard-court Indian Wells title earlier this year against Roger Federer to show he absolutely can win these kinds of events. At the Rogers Cup last week, his defeat of former US Open champion Marin Cilic suggests one thing, while his dismissal in the next round by Daniil Medvedev suggests another.

His best result of the year was winning the title in Indian Wells where he beat Roger Federer in the final 3-6 6-3 7-5 and in Barcelona where he beat Daniil Medvedev in the final 6-4 6-0 and in Kitzbuhel where he beat Albert Ramos-Vinolas in the final 7-6(0) 6-1. The Austrian has a 32-13 win-loss record in 2019, 9-5 on hard (See FULL STATS).

ATP Tour

Gasquet has been playing well but I see him struggling against a much stronger player. Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Dominic Thiem to win this match. Thiem has established himself as an elite player and the Austrian has been in outstanding form having recently won the Austrian Open.
