That is the most stupid statement I've ever heard, do you really follow tennis dude?
You made it sound like Gasquet got in the top 10 SIMPLY by having others close to his ranking fail, like he had nothing to do with his ranking. The ranking system doesn't work like that. Everyone has to defend the points they won in the previous year and if Gasquet didn't win enough in 2012 it wouldn't matter if those other guys defended their points or not he would not be in the top 10 if he didn't win as much as he had this season to remain close enough to take advantage of those around him not able to defend their points. If they didn't defend their points then Gasquet must have defended enough points on his own to make it matter.

Just give it up dude!

Re: Richard Gasquet in the top 10

Actually Sapeod, Gasquet's Top 10 spot was obvious before Paris. He was Top 10 in the Race for a while, and it was obvious he was gonna be Top 10 in the Rankings after last year's point would have dropped out. Almagro needed a good Paris to change this possibility, but since you didn't follow Paris, the fact that Gasquet was Top 10 potential then should have remained imprinted into your mind.

Peaking for the ACC, go for it

yup, he has no clue but he has to talk about Mandy, it's called OCD

anyway, expected so much more from Richie. I really like him so much. I thought, back in 2006 that he was going to be a big deal. After Nole, my fav. player. but I gave up on Gasquet. you just never know what to expect from him. my biggest problem is that he just doesn't care . sure he'll stay around for a while but he'll achieve nothing I'm afraid

I don't think so, he is what he is. If somebody expected he's the next Federer, that was completely unrealistic in the first place

Re: Richard Gasquet in the top 10

Paying out the 'inflated' ranking of back end top 10 players is becoming a strong MTF tradition. Cilic, Fish, Tipsarevic, Almagro, Monaco and now Gasquet have all fallen victim. Wawrinka and Verdasco also got some flak.

Ferrer probably did also, back in 2006 whn he first entered top-10. Not that he's not getting it now....

It's not a question of Sapeod not following Paris. It should be clear to everyone on here, he doesn't follow tennis at all.

Gasquet lost early in Paris and so did Isner and Monaco who lost a lot of points. He leapfrogged them because they lost early. Simple as that.

If Monaco and Isner did well in Paris again, they wouldn't have lost their points and would've stayed above him, since he lost early and didn't gain many points. As far as I can see, Gasquet got into the top 10 because they lost points, not because he gained any.

As I said, it's a shame to an otherwise good top 10 (not including Nadal and Djokovic who are awful for tennis but are obviously the big guns because hardly anyone can beat them.

If statements are very useful for manipulating arugments. If Gasquet had won every match he played this year he would've finished as world number one. If Gasquet had played Nice he wouldn't have dropped points. If.... You can't start an argument off with If, its stupid. "If Gasquet had made that shot he would've won the match" well he didn't.

I don't care. Fact is, they lost early and so did Gasquet. Gasquet lost points while Isner and Monaco lost even more because they did well last year. He leapfrogged them because they lost early. Simple as that.

The worst thing is you're not even kidding, you're genuinely clueless

These are the year-end rankings, and Gasquet collected more points during 2012 than those bellow him. Doesn't matter who defended what.

for some devious reasons I like reading your posts. Gasquet being a real top 10 is a pain in the ass for many disgruntled MTF lurkers like you and i like it a lot
Almagro losing in ridiculous fashion to a semi-retired 40-somethin guy is a testimony to his utter mugginess. He is 1-19 vs top 4 and there is nothing you can argue against that. 1-19

Gasquet #10
Almagro mug #1
