The 30-year-old Frenchman, defeated Argentinean Carlos Berlocq in straight sets, 6-1, 6-4, to win his first match since February and advance to the quarter-finals.

“I was a bit fearful of my physical condition. But I´m feeling at 100 %, with no injuries at all. I was happy to win in two sets”, said Gasquet

The Frenchman, who in 2015 won the inaugural edition of the tournament, underwent surgery in March due to an appendicitis and after a disappointing clay debut in Barcelona returned to his winning ways in the court in which he won the trophy two years ago.

Next up for Gasquet will be the South African Kevin Anderson. It will be the ninth encounter between the two players with Gasquet leading the head-to-head with five wins.
