Gasquet: DY is a future Top 10 player

Q. What do you know about your next opponent?
RICHARD GASQUET: He progress incredible. I saw him last year. This year, he's not the same guy for sure. Last year he was really young. This year he's young too, for sure, but he plays really, really good. I think he will be in three or four years in the top 10 for sure. If he's patient, he will be great for sure. He plays like a little Rios. He has the same game like him. No, he has a lot of talent. It's great for American tennis.




Nice words. Wish I could see the match

Re: Gasquet: DY is a future Top 10 player

Young just won his first match in a slam and he is a future top 10 player ? Is it not a little premature ?

VAMOS DAVID AND COME ON ANDRE AND ALLEZ JO !!

Well, top 20 players like Davydenko and Gasquet seem to think so You don't know what's in store for the future, who the competition will be or how your body will hold up, but I guess based just squarely on talent.

Re: Gasquet: DY is a future Top 10 player

gasquet says about the same thing about all the players. the 20th ranked guy 0r the 60th. "Great player, have to play my best, etc."
He just wont (or his english wont let him) insult another player

I think his english is limited!

He does, but it's usualy generic stuff like you said. He doesn't usually talk about players going into the top 10 and what not to my knowledge.

Re: Gasquet: DY is a future Top 10 player

Interesting comments from Richie.

I actually think that DY- from the limited amount that I have seen- plays a more flair as opposed to power type game that is more typical of young US guys now and he actually reminds me more of some of the French players.

I hope that DY does continue to mature, etc.- because I find his game a nice variation from a lot of the other US players.

Since Richie has such a pretty, flair-filled game- I imagine that he may like DY's game a lot more than say a Sam Querry or Isner. I am not saying Donald is akin to Gasquet- just that I imagine that his game would appeal to Richie more.

I like a lot of players.

English proficiancy aside, those are words of high praise indeed... Still haven't seen enough of Young myself to judge - not that my personal evaluation means much in itself as I still consider myself a tennis novice despite watching the sport for many years - so I'll take Gasquet's word for it that the American at least seems to have the ability to be a top player.
