Big deal. Gasquet is only playing this weak ass event to save face. He may walk away with the title, but no one will be impressed.
If it helps his confidence, then it's a good move. Agassi played challengers before regaining his major championship form, Gasquet should be able to play a minor league tournie to boost his confidence and hopefully put him in the right frame of mind. Gasquet has a good game, if he could just shut off his brain for the time he's on court.
