No, he wasn`t.
But again, it depends what you are calling big tournaments and how you counting. Gasquet didn`t lose even once during 1st week at Slams. What about Almagro? He did. .
once in Wimbledon to Gasquet : yes Gasquet is better than him on grass
But he played a slam quarterfinal and Berdych defeated him 46 76 76 76 in the Australian open.
Gasquet lost 3 times in MAsters 1000 first round, Almagro only once to Haas (and it was the only time he didn't reach R16 in a Masters 1000 he played this year, it happened 4 times to Gasquet)
Anyway, I told you I took many things into account and I give my opinion.
You like Gasquet (I have nothing against him at all and I'm not a fan of Almagro at all), I understand, but that's my opinion. I like to be objective but in my eyes it doesn't necessarily imply being limited to a few numbers as many ones think objectivity means on MTF, I prefer looking at things more precisely (and I've no problem with numbers : I'm a statistician
I don`t believe in "luck". I`m watching tennis and other sports for years and can surely confirm that everyone deserves or doesn`t deserve his luck. As simple as that.
I do believe in luck or fate (even quite strongly), and my favorite player Federer, who knows quite well about tennis I guess, often speaks about it, either when he wins or when he loses.
