I've had it with Gasquet

No one was a bigger fan than me. I defended him in many questionable chokes. Questionable comments. Questionable injuries. I can no longer.

He is not a teenager any more and has been on the tour for years. Injuries/illnesses happen and I can understand the occasional withdrawal. Players get nervous on the court and will throw away a match. I understand all that. But a sore throat (this is not his first and how many of us used this pathetic excuse to get out of going to school? )? They do make painkillers for almost any degree of pain. This is the USO.

However, Gasquet has taken this direction of illnesses/injuries to an art form. If he is this fragile maybe he should be the next Bubble Boy.

I think he freaked over Young (the latest teen phenom like he had been) and didn't want to risk that Young might be beat him.
I personally think Gasquet is light years ahead of Young but I wonder that Gasquet freaks about everything.

I think Gasquet does not have any mental strength and will never be a great player. You cannot be a great player if you NEVER play.


This from the USO site:

Comments on his mental game.

Obviously I am not alone in this.

Sore throat is a tricky thing.
You can play of course,but with a high body temperature,I doubt he can give his best,so instead he decided to withdraw,what is wrong with that?

Re: I've had it with Gasquet

He also has fever, which is more complicated than just sore throat.

Re: I've had it with Gasquet

It's unreasonable to expect Gasquet, who has a fever, to go out there and play in the hot sun. It was a better decision to withdraw. Give Gasquet a break.

I have been giving gasquet a break for almost three years.
He should have at least tried.

My point is that it is ALWAYS something with gasquet. A fever? Many of us go to work with fevers and live to tell the tale. So do many athletes.

Let's not forget how he beats Roddick and then bombs the rest of the summer.

Re: I've had it with Gasquet

I've played with worse symptoms. Gasquet is a wimp. He needs to grow up. Nadal's condition is far more serious as he is risking permanent injury yet he sucked it up and won his match yesterday. Not that I condone what Nadal is doing in his particular case. Was that so hard for Richie?
