Who is the better French Hope?

Monfils or Tsonga?

most ppl assume gasquet is the best hope.

at least thats what i thought.

i was more interested in who is better out of these two young guys.

I think Gasquet is a better hope than Monfils.

This isn't even a contest. Tsonga. What has Monflis done?

Re: Who is the better French Hope?

Monfils who? Seriously, the question should be Gasquet or Tsonga. And in that case I'll say Gasquet, despite the several mental obstacles, he's someone who can last in the top-20 (if not top-10) for several years. I don't see that in Tsonga. He's more of the player who will have a few hot runs every now and then but never really challenge the 'big boys' when it comes down to it.

Re: Who is the better French Hope?

Monfils is an overrated clown. Tsonga is much more better.

Re: Who is the better French Hope?

Tsonga will end up as a much better/more successful player than Monfils.

I think Monfils will be another great junior player who translates into a solid top 30 player but nothing much more than that. Tsonga just has more weapons and with his increasing fitness, he can only get better.

Re: Who is the better French Hope?

All things considering, Gasquet, Tsonga, Monfils and Mathieu are all late-bloomers. Gasquet has had the better ranking/Slam success so far
