Grigor Dimitrov will face Richard Gasquet in the match of the third round of Wimbledon .
I more fancy Dimitrov in this match. This surface more fit to him . Last year he showed great performance on this tournament reaching semifinal and I think he can make a good result this year too . He played in Queens before this tournament and he didn’t made good result there losing from Muller in second round . But here he showed much better play with express win against Delbonis and very dangerous Johnson . Against Gasquet he have 0 -4 record , but their last match was played in 2013 and Dimitrov made big progress since them . They also meet in Hurlingam on exhibition match few days before this tournament and he Dimitrov won in 2 sets , it is true that that was only exhibition match but Dimitrov surely there boost his morale for this match .
Gasquet had quite easier draw in first two round as he played against 2 players who are out of top 150 , Saville and De Schepper and he beat them without any troubles . Now he will have much tougher task ., and I must give better chances to Dimitrov . He have much stronger serve and that is huge advantage on grass . He had a great percentage of first serve points won in first two rounds . Against Delbonis he had 91 % and again Johnson 84 % . Also he have more aggressive style of play and on this tournament he was hitting very well especially against Johnson where he had amazing 47 winners . So at this moment he looks much better than Gasquet and I expect his win here .
