Roger Federer vs Richard Gasquet: US Open tennis 2015 schedule, TV time and live streaming etc
The US Open tennis tournament was centered around Williams sisters namely Serena Williams and Venus Williams till now. But now people have realized that the match was over-hyped as Venus seems to be losing her grip on tennis. It is notwithstanding the fact that she has played some great tennis in the US Open this year.
Nonetheless women tennis still cannot be compared to menâ€™s tennis due to the ferociousness of the game that comes out many a times. By the time Andy Murrayâ€™s last match was over, some three matches would have been played in women tennis in the same time of four hours and eighteen minutes.
Neither Roger Federer nor Stan Wawrinka have dropped a set yet in the tournament. Federer is all set to fight No. 12 Richard Gasquet of France in the quarterfinals not long before 8 p.m. ET in Arthur Ashe Stadium, the latter having dispatched No. 6 seed Tomas Berdych in the fourth round. Federer is 14-2 all-time against Gasquet.
On the other hand, another fearsome player in the tennis world at the moment Wawrinka will be pitted against Kevin Anderson of South Africa, who toppled No. 3 Andy Murray in the fourth round that was nothing short of an epic game that lasts more than four hours. There is no denying the fact that he is very tough opponent against whoever he is pitted.
When it comes to the women’s tennis in the US Open this year, quarterfinal action starts at 11 a.m. at Arthur Ashe Stadium with No. 5 Petra Kvitova batting No. 26 Flavia Pennetta. The two haven’t met since 2012, with their most notable match a Round of 16 win by Kvitova at Wimbledon in 2011. The second women’s singles quarterfinal match is No. 2 Simona Halep facing No. 20 Victoria Azarenka, the latter having won both of their career matchups though the two haven’t faced one another since 2012.
