I don't think so. Richard's serve is quite versatile and if he is not hampered by shoulder or ellbow-problems, he gets quite some free points from it, I don't remember that from Séb.

Grosjean

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Grosjean, his game was a joy to watch. Underrated player

Grosjean was #1 junior in singles and doubles.. how is Gasquet better in that?

Gasquet ranked number one as a 16 year old, Grosjean as an 18 year old. Gasquet won 2 boys' Grand Slams while Grosjean didn't do too well in the very biggest boys' events.

Re: More talented: Sebastien Grosjean or Richard Gasquet

I like Gasquet but to be perfectly honest, I also think many people here are overestimating him. He was a talented junior but then again many are. As the years went on he just couldn't keep up with the others despite having that beautiful backhand. Actually, I think that's just it - the LOOK of that particular shot have made people expect perhaps too much from Gasquet.

Seb was a more complete player and his forehand was an ever bigger weapon than Richard's BH. Who knows exactly which one of them was the bigger talent but if I was a player myself, I know I'd be more afraid of Grosjean.

How can you be so sure they wouldn't? Pointless arrogance.

Re: More talented: Sebastien Grosjean or Richard Gasquet

Grosjean.
Hadn't he be mentaly and physicly limited, he would have at least 2 slams. Great serve for his size, solid backhand and one of the best forehands the game has ever seen.

When on fire, that forehand was almost making me wet.
Thank god we still have this youtube highlights.

Re: More talented: Sebastien Grosjean or Richard Gasquet

When at his best, Gasquet can play at a level Grosjean can only dream of playing.
Could you even picture Grosjean throwing something like 40 winners - 6 UEs in 2 sets and half against a guy like Murray on grass?? Not me anyway.
