Here find out everything there’s to know about this tennis match: preview, information, head-to-head, predictions, odds and how to watch it in the US.
Federer, who next month will be 40 years-old, has come back to tour after two knee surgeries and more than a year without competing at elite level. He made it into the fourth round in Roland Garros and retired before playing Matteo Berrettini, but he hasn’t shown his best side on grass so far.
The Swiss, 20-time Grand Slam champion, had serious troubles against Adrian Mannarino in the first round, losing two sets, before recovering in the fourth and advancing after the French retired. Now, he will face a familiar rival, Richard Gasquet, who will try to win his third win over the Swiss.
