Zverev denies Gasquet Montpellier hat-trick

Zverev denies Gasquet Montpellier hat-trick

At just 19-years-old, he is now the world No. 18 on the ATP World Tour.

Jo Wilfried-Tsonga has progressed to the semi-finals of the Open Sud de France in Montpellier after defeating Russia's Daniil Medvedev 6-2 7-5.

This time, he denied Gasquet a 15th career title.

After exchanging early breaks of serve, Dimitrov, who defeated Kei Nishikori last month to win the Brisbane International, made the all-important breakthrough in game 12 on his way to the first set.

He broke twice to win four games in a row and then claimed a third break point a few games later to level the scores at a set apiece.

Dolan And The Knicks Mishandled Oakley Situation From The start!
Neither Benedetto nor Madison Square Garden representatives could immediately be reached for comment. "Everybody has a right to come to that game, come to those games and enjoy them", Dolan said .

"It's a great achievement for me to win three titles here", said Estrella Burgos.

Gasquet is the two-time defending champion at the tournament.

The third-seeded Gasquet next faces Benoit Paire and holds a 3-0 record against his countryman in their career meetings. "Obviously it was a very tough tournament, only one straight-sets match in the whole tournament, today, and it was not an easy one".

He still had enough energy left to join his brother for the doubles final, beating Fabrice Martin and Daniel Nestor 6-4, 6-7 (3), 10-7. With both players enjoying winning 86% of their first serve points, an inevitable tiebreak was needed to decide the set.

Gasquet, ranked 22, has never before faced Zverev, who is ranked 21. "We only dropped one set".
