When Will Gasquet Make Another Grand Slam Quarter-Final?

Hard to believe it but he's only ever done it once in his career which was at Wimbledon 2007 which he made the semi's in.

Re: When Will Gasquet Make Another Grand Slam Quarter-Final?

Only one QF? Wow, thought he had more than that.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Just shows how overrated he has been though. Saying that though he's definitely somewhat good enough to make a few more quarters, I mean even guys like Almagro have more than him.

Can't see him doing it this year, as much as I want it. If he ever makes it again it will probably be at Wimbledon, since it's the only place he decides to play on the baseline.

It takes perseverance and is accordingly difficult to reach the QF of a Slam.

Richie doesn't like difficult things. He won't make another QF.

Re: When Will Gasquet Make Another Grand Slam Quarter-Final?

What amazes me is people break out the Clownga and Clownfils jokes when both of them have at least made one GS QF every year since 2008. Gasquet and Simon will never be on their level.



Stronga,Monfils,DelPo,Nalbandian,Berdych,Gulbis,Ha as and Djokovic are the players I support the most.

Marin Cilic also has more, and he's not even playing for some time. I don't know, how did he get that "baby Fed" tag anyway? Seems like Fed in his early 40s will have more QFs.

Clownga isn't really justified. Clownfils is - guy is just a massive waste of potential. The difference with the other two guys is that they are gimped by their physique while Gasquet also has a severe lack of testicular fortitude.

Cilic will be a beast when he gets healthy. Played Fed really good at the Open.

Totally agree with you his finals record is just . Simon at leats puts up results like pushing Fed to 5 at AO or beating DelPo at USO. Gasquet never does anything in a major.

Well, ppl didn't even expect Simon to be able to turn pro when he was a junior, whilst expectations on the other 3 were sky high since they are all very good in junior.

I know nobody think much of Simon on MTF, but he at least gets a lot out of what he got, if only he has a little bit more muscles to put some weight on his shots...but he doesn't.

Re: When Will Gasquet Make Another Grand Slam Quarter-Final?

Anyone who thought Gasquet would dominate the tour was delusional. Sure he is supremely talented in some areas but his physique is a huge limitation in this era. All this before you take into account his lack of balls.

Very true I love Simon he is a tactical genuis. I am just glad Gael finally beat him. I really wanted him to beat Isner last year at the Open because I think he could have beat Murray.

BTW, not that I like Nico much, but he's a very talented player, easily a Top 8 clay courter every year, so him making 2 QFs in RG is not that surprising.
