Haas and Simon are just pawns. The real chess match is the 4th round clash between Murray and Gasquet. :cool:

Completely agree BGT as I really hope we'll get to see that matchup as that will be a very special match and then the big one between Rafa and Murray  :)~

Definitely Chris, Haas can perhaps force a tiebreak in 1 set, but the Gasquet Murray one will be even closer, 7-6 7-6 7-6 to Murray  :)) Murray is going to win the tournament without dropping a set.

It should be a good match between Murray and Gasquet.  Although Gasquet leads 2-0 in their H2H.

H2H doesn't matter, it'll be a great match. Andy will win in straights, but I don't think they've met on grass before? 6-4 7-5 6-3 Murray.

Er...yes, h2h does matter. It could show Gasquet is a bad match-up for Murray's game, and Gasquet will definitely have a slight psychological edge.

Yes, but it matters a bit less when the h2h is based on hardcourt encounters, and they haven't played on grass.

They're kind of in the middle of a round and not as many people follow it.
