Richard Gasquet and Novak Djokovic will be in quarterfinal action on Friday in Basel.
France’s Richard Gasquet wasn’t in good form on Thursday. The Frenchman defeated Tobias Kamke of Germany in straight sets, but the match was a mess throughout. Gasquet’s quarterfinal opponent is Viktor Troicki. The Serb has been playing well this fall. He won the tournament in Moscow and made the semifinals in Tokyo.
Based on current form and the high level of hard-court tennis Troicki is playing right now, expect him to advance to the semifinals.
