How Will Dickhead Handle Richard Gasquet Having all the Attention This Year and Next?

It's about time they acknowledge a face out of America! You can't deny THIS kid's talent! Lovely game he has! Although I have not taken a liking to him, I see a better future for him than roddick!

I hope he qualifies so I can watch his first round match.

But seeing as he's French, I'm not sure we'll go into "hype overload" with him.

At least not in North America we won't.

Our French posters might feel different about that though

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

...

He would either win a slam so he can live up to the hype...

or

Date Gasquet, at least to get some of the attention the other is getting you know what they say...If you can't beat them

i feel an attack of poesie coming on...

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Im worried about this. Gasquet is almost getting this super-pressure over him, due to the enormous attention he attracted. Thats cool and everything, but it can get very bad for the kid´s development as a better player.

Please dont let such a big talent be overwhelmed by overhyping.

wooden jesus, can i be saved? i spent all my money on a future grave.. ill cut you in on 20% of my future sins..

i think gasquet won't get as much attention because he's not american

I kept hearing about this kid during, I think Monte Carlo?, when he got through qualifying, then beat Squillari in the 1st rd, but then lost to Safin in the 2nd rd. Hopefully we'll get a chance to see him. Very curious.

I had the chance to see king Richard playing against Caretti... A very boring match, embarassing for Caretti There is no doubt that Richard will be number 1 one day, and Andy will be number 2 not far behind

Not as much hype as Roddick's but still the media loves him, & so do the commentators of Eurosport. Just too bad we cant have a serve/volley kid wonder. I miss those

a spanking is a beating. i didn't say he destroyed him, just that he spanked him. which he did regardless of the score...
