Can Gasquet Do It At The USO?

I believe if he chokes loses from two sets to love up at the USO he'll be the first player ever to choke lose from 2 sets to love up at all the Grand Slams.

So can he do it?

Nalbandian has also done it in 3/4 of the Slams. US Open 2003 (vs. Roddick), Australian Open 2006 (vs. Baghdatis) and Roland Garros 2008 (vs. Chardy).

You're secretly in love with Richard. Embrace it and put a few posters up there to drool over, rather than argue with yourself via MTF

If there are any French players I secretly love, I'm admitting they're Chardy and Robert.

Well depends on who he draws. Some players are so good they won't even let him get to a 2 sets lead.

Re: Can Gasquet Do It At The USO?

Joker also has a shot at completing his career grand slam (ret.) at the US Open this year (and doing it before his countryman Tipsy has another shot at it).

Judging by his performance yesterday, I think there is a real possibility of him getting it done this year.

There is so much at stake this year at the US Open.

You are asking for trouble with this vague thread title.


Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Gasquet lost a match at the USO from 2 sets up - but I hope he doesn't. I hate seeing him lose matches like that over and over again.

Jase for a person who hates Gasquet, you're sure to be paying him more attention than necessary.

Re: Can Gasquet Do It At The USO?

Losing a two set lead should be no problem for him. But at this point I'm not sure he can get a two set lead.

If you were able to admit it to yourself without problems, it wouldn't be a secret crush, would it. You post about him more than I or any other of his fans do. Give that poster a go.

Re: Can Gasquet Do It At The USO?

In his current form, I don't think he'll get 2 sets up on anyone. But if he somehow manages that, then sure, he has a good chance of this record.
