Re: What is the most important factor for Gasquet?

If drugs give him some self confidence and self belief, I could turn a blind eye to his using! I often think with him, he's just not arrogant enough and too much of a nice guy. Still my favourite though and always will be.

Tell him to stop standing 10m behind the baseline all the time.

All of the poll options and he may have a shot at top 5.

Re: What is the most important factor for Gasquet?

It has to be his mind. Gasquet is an example of waste of talent for lack of mental strengh. Hope he can get better results next year, I really like his game.

Re: What is the most important factor for Gasquet?

Standing too far behind the baseline particularly on service returns, fitness and footwork. His serve could be better but he could be top 5 if he sorted out his court positioning.

Re: What is the most important factor for Gasquet?

The main thing for Gasquet from now on is to tell himself "I'm the better player than my opponent" every time he steps out on the court. That's not the mentality he has right now even when he's playing against the #210 ranked player in the world.

Re: What is the most important factor for Gasquet?

He has a beautiful game but is mentally weak. Obviously very true for many French players. Unlike other French players in the past I hope he can get his mind together and reach his potential. Remember that the descriptions that are applied to Gasquet now were once applied to Federer.

Re: What is the most important factor for Gasquet?

Fitness and physical strenght.
If he can improve those 2 things then the rest(including the mental strenght)will come from itself.
The guy is by far the worst athlete of any player in the top 20
