Rafael Nadal aims to extend his unbeaten record over Richard Gasquet when the pair collide in the Third Round of the 2022 US Open on Saturday.
Nadal boasts an astonishing head-to-head record of 16 consecutive wins over the Frenchman stretching back to 2004, and this will be their third meeting in the US Open.
Nadal is still yet to lose a completed match in a Grand Slam this year, having picked up the Australian Open and French Open titles to move clear at the top of the all-time list, before having to withdraw prior to his Semi-Final at Wimbledon through injury.
The 36-year-old is in pursuit of a fifth US Open crown, with his most recent success here coming in 2019, and looks to be the formidable force in his section of the draw.
The Spaniard has done things the hard way in the early rounds this week, recovering from a set down in each of his opening two matches against Rinky Hijikata and Fabio Fognini to prevail in four.
Gasquet has been an ever-present at Flushing Meadows since 2005 but has not made it beyond the Third Round stage since 2015.
The 36-year-old, who reached the semis here in 2013, overcame Japan’s Taro Daniel in Round One before also defeating number 32 seed Miomir Kecmanović in four sets in a three-hour contest.
Gasquet will be determined to finally end his miserable record against his nemesis Nadal before he decides to hang up his racket, and the Frenchman is eyeing what would be a major upset to inflict Rafa’s first Grand Slam defeat of the season.
Either Diego Schwartzman or Frances Tiafoe will await the winner in the Fourth Round next week.
