Re: Who is the current best french player??
Yes France is in this special, many countries has their best player, but France has many good players, this 4 are definetely the best what France have. Each of them is former top 10 player, in Monfils case current top 10 and each of them i think can be in top 10 for longer time if they played the best, but France need someone from this guys to step one level above the others and became top 5 - i know it is extremely difficult to be top 5 in era of Roger, Nole, Rafa, Delpo, Andy, Soda but i think Monfils and Tsonga have that potential. Simon i think is good player but has no weapon-not super forehand, beckhand or serve, about Gasquet he is good, talented, but if he gets in top 10 again i can see him in that 6-10 ranking not top 5, but how i said Tsonga and Monfils have both potential if they play there maximum, both are often injured what is problem for them to be good for longer period of time and also earn enough points to ATP ranking to go much higher than other Frenchmen. Also both play with too much emotions and are not thinking enough on the court are are very vulnerable for crowd - i mean they start to play in front of crowd too emotionaly and it can cost them matches. Monfils at his best i think is elite player on clay and top 10 without problem on HC, Tsonga is maybe even top 5 on HC at his best, so if they stay injury free and will be confident- they need something like Nole had- maybe if they will win Davis cup for France will get this extra confident they can be top 10 for long time and maybe even top 5.
