Gasquet: I can beat Murray

by: Matt Cronin March 29, 2013

Even though he owns a 3-4 record against Andy Murray, France’s Richard Gasquet thinks he has a good chance to upset the world No. 3 in the Miami semifinals.

“He has all the shots of tennis: Serving well, returning incredible, running well,” Gasquet told reporters. “He's one of the best attackers in the world.  He can do everything on the tennis court.  He's very clever. He's an unbelievable player, but I know his game.  …

“I'm more confident in my strokes. I can go and try a lot of things because I have nothing to lose, and I can be very dangerous. For sure, I know I can win against Andy. He's the favorite. But I know his game. I know how he plays. I play so many times against him. We did great matches in the past.”
