Andy Murray has played down his tag as favourite ahead of his fourth round French Open clash against Richard Gasquet.
The world number four will take on the home favourite in Paris just weeks after the Frenchman beat him in Rome.
The record between the two currently stands at three wins apiece from six meetings although the most memorable clash between the pair remains their 2008 fourth round match at Wimbledon.
On that occasion the Dunblane ace fought back from two sets down to claim victory and a place in the heart of a sceptical home crowd.
Looking back at that match, Murray said: "It was a very good comeback. I remember him starting the match very, very well, and then I just managed to turn it around.
"I wouldn't necessarily see myself as the favourite for the match. Obviously he beat me a couple of weeks ago. He's going to have the crowd behind him. Right now this has probably been his best surface.
"So it's going to be a tough match. But when I played him here last time, I hung in, I fought really hard. When he plays well, he's a very, very tough guy to beat. He plays some unbelievable shots."
After beating Germany’s Tommy Haas in the last round, Gasquet is in confident mood especially with the match taking place on clay.
He said: "I think it's always better to play him on clay than on grass. But he's in the top four and has been for quite a while. So I'm not the favourite.
"But it's up to me to play a big match, to play inside the court, which is what I managed to do in Rome during the third set. I'll be playing on a big court. I have the crowd, and I have to give everything to have no regrets."
