Gasquet is still in that "I'm the underdog" mode. Always thinking that he's up against someone who's better than him and if he plays someone who's the underdog he still finds a way to make it seem like they are the favorite because they have nothing to lose against him, which is what I said about his 2nd round opponent. I know that's his humble nature but it's time he got some killer instinct and start kicking some butts with his attitude! Instead of saying "nobody expects me to beat Roddick" how about saying something like "I beat him last time we played so I will use that to my mental advantage." Why not think that way instead of he's the favorite and all I can do is give it my all. Gasquet has always lacked that killer instinct that you see with the other top players.
Perhaps he is not that confident yet at the moment so he says those things. I have heard him being more bold with his statements. As far as talking about his second round opponent, he always calls his opponents "great players" and stuff like that.
