Re: Do you think Richard Gasquet could be top 10 again?

Gasquet was never top 10 material. He overachieved for a while and then dropped out not long after that. He is not a top 10 player, his game is not beautiful, he is overrated etc.

Gasquet is a mediocre player compared to the top. He's a top 20 player at best.

Re: Do you think Richard Gasquet could be top 10 again?

Now only if Simon takes the title it won`t happen.

I think Gilles can do it, but more likely he won`t. My big hi to all haters and to people who never lost hope in Richie like me. I believe next season can be even better, only sad a bit that Gasquet couldn`t finish season in Paris on huge note, field is so open. But you can`t get everything simulteneously I guess.

Gasquet is next №1

or Wawrinka

but I don't think they will do it : Gasquet will be number 10 and first substitute for the WTF, with the same number of points as Almagro

Honestly I think Almagro deserved it more (and he had never been to the WTF contrary to Gasquet) : he had bad draws unfortunately in last weeks, especially last week in Valencia. Gasquet's win over Youzhny last week gave him the top-10

useless old guy

The fact that Gasquet is in top ten makes me sad for the current state of tennis.

If Mugnaco, Shitgro, Dumbsarevic can be top 10, then there's no reason why Drugsquet couldn't be.

Totally forgot about Stan, you are right. But If about Simon I think it`s not very likely then to Wawa I give almost no chance. Will be very surprised if he beats David today.

It depends. Almagro took a lot of points on clay tournaments with not so difficult field. Gasquet never failed at Slam early and had great week at Toronto where draw was opened, but victories over Berdych and Isner were great nevertheless. It depends on what to consider more important/impressive. I would go vice versa with Gasquet as during the season he was lower in Ranking and had worse draws overall at big tournaments than Nico.

Gasquet is next №1

Re: Do you think Richard Gasquet could be top 10 again?

Why is top 10 even considered a major milestone? The milestones are top 2, top 4, top 8, top 16, and top 32. Top 10 is meaningless.

No. Just because draws are made this way doesn't mean it's more relevant as an ACCOMPLISHMENT than being top 10, top 20 etc.

What exactly does being top 10 accomplish for a player? it's just a number.

Come on you're putting too much thought into it. Why not top 11 or top 12? Because it's easier that way.

good question. Why not? Why not a milestone of top 9? I mean top 9 is clearly better than top 10.
