Well, yes, hard to say you didn't expect more from him, but at the same time, he was after all just a teenager, plenty of teens get these great wins here and there because they have nothing to lose.
I see your point but honestly, you will VERY rarely see a teenager play to the level he played at MC 2005.
I've followed tennis for 20 years and i don't quite remember having ever seen a 18 year old guy played some of the stuff Gasquet played against Federer and Nadal in 2005.That was that freakish.
Well written post with a number of good points . The forehand has pretty much held back his progress just like Murray's forehand has prevented him from winning a major. Still though he should have made more deep runs in slams over the years. Being owned by someone like Ferrer who has no real weapons pretty much shows how overrated Gasquet is.
.......or how much he has underachieved.
Does anyone believe he can still make a deep run at Wimbledon??
Until last year, i was convinced of that but since that terrible performance against Murray (particularly mentally), i'm not so convinced of that anymore.
