Re: More talented: Sebastien Grosjean or Richard Gasquet

I like Gasquet but to be perfectly honest, I also think many people here are overestimating him. He was a talented junior but then again many are. As the years went on he just couldn't keep up with the others despite having that beautiful backhand. Actually, I think that's just it - the LOOK of that particular shot have made people expect perhaps too much from Gasquet.

Seb was a more complete player and his forehand was an ever bigger weapon than Richard's BH. Who knows exactly which one of them was the bigger talent but if I was a player myself, I know I'd be more afraid of Grosjean.

How can you be so sure they wouldn't? Pointless arrogance.
