Clueless? Wrong.
These are the year-end rankings, and Gasquet collected more points during 2012 than those bellow him. Doesn't matter who defended what.
I know that, but he only ended up there because Isner/Monaco lost early. That is a fact. Actually, Almagro losing helped too. He's lucky.

Almagro losing in ridiculous fashion to a semi-retired 40-somethin guy is a testimony to his utter mugginess. He is 1-19 vs top 4 and there is nothing you can argue against that. 1-19

Gasquet #10
Almagro mug #1
Gasquet won't be there for very long, so enjoy it while you can.

Mathematically others also benefitted from Gasquet's early exit too so it's all relative. No one got a free lunch here which is exactly what you're suggesting with Gasquet.
Nobody benefitted from Gasquet losing early. He still jumped up a few places because they lost early.
And by the way, just because you watch tennis doesn't necessarily mean you understand it because based on your comments you clearly don't understand it...either that you you're a master at spinning things!
That makes me laugh. I know what I'm talking about. I always know what I'm talking about

Correct. One great tournament helped him a lot and two early losses from other players helped him even more. Almagro losing to Stepanek of all people helped too. He's just lucky.

He won't be there for very long, so that's fine.
