He will never get to number 1 in my opinion, someone like djokovic will keep him at arms lengths

Re: When will Gasquet become #1?

"That's up to him" would be my answer.
I know that sounds as a crazy question but does he really want to become number 1??

Re: When will Gasquet become #1?

There are loads of players that could be #1 - its just getting there. Federer has been number one now for the last three years constantly.

He will have to fight off Federer himself, Nadal, Djokovic, Berdych and others to get there.

Re: When will Gasquet become #1?

It depends if he has a breakthrough like Fed...His career till now is remarkebly similar to that of Fed's early career, so it's not too far off to expect him to rise the rankings in a big way,...I think he will get #1 at some point during his career, never as dominant as Federer, but a few weeks somewhere around 2010.

Re: When will Gasquet become #1?

Too many players of his age or younger that are better than him, I severely doubt he will get to no.1 but if he does it would take a lot of improving, further we don't know who out of the current 15/16/17/18 yr olds are going to become champions and probably make it even more difficult for him to get there.

Re: When will Gasquet become #1?

NEVER EVER, Gasquetards!

He is nothing special, has a superb performance one day and the next day he looses to Vliegen or some No.88

(Gasquet)ards can be happy with top 10 position.

He's always injured and the weight of expectation is too much.
