But yes, if one shot is better in Gasquet's, it's the backhand (although Leconte's slice was better, and Gasquet's backhand is overrated imo, it's a very beautiful shot at times but not such a strong shot usually)
Well, Gasquet's BH is actually everything good. Rich is the BH man, as he barely has anything else in his game.

But Henry Leconte was a much better player, perhaps too crazy to get where he could be.

I was a great fan of Guy Forget right after Leconte's best years, also we shouldn't forget Pioline, Arnaud Beoetsch, Clement was a top 10 and especially Sebastien Grosjean! World n.4 at one point
