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

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

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
I decided to write it in this very thread to you - love your signature.

Gasquet is next №1

How Gasquet got into the top 10 is a reflection of the whole year, not just one tournament. If Gasquet was ranked 35 it wouldn't have matter how Isner and Monaco did because he was not close enough take advantage of them not defending their points. Mathematically others also benefitted from Gasquet's early exit too so it's all relative. No one got a free lunch here which is exactly what you're suggesting with Gasquet.

And by the way, just because you watch tennis doesn't necessarily mean you understand it because based on your comments you clearly don't understand it...either that you you're a master at spinning things!

Re: Richard Gasquet in the top 10

Gasquet got a one-off boost from a freak tournament in Canada. It's no different than what happened with Wawrinka in Rome. +600 points makes a hell of a lot of difference down there.

Come the end of the N American season next year, Gasquet will be back to 15-20ish, where he'd be now but for the Canada points.

Re: Richard Gasquet in the top 10

^^Isner also had IW final that he's unlikely to defend. Janko SF in Madrid, etc.

Re: Richard Gasquet in the top 10

I think it's wonderful that an athletically challenged skill-player is top-10 in the world! Richie's game is beautiful and refreshing.

Re: Richard Gasquet in the top 10

When Richie is really on his game, in the zone, or however you want to put it he does play tennis beautifully and it is lovely to watch. So I'm happy for Richie

you are right. couldn't agree more. his game is beautiful and I drool over his BH. the problem is that he has never achieved his potential IMHO. I thought, back in 2006, that Nole, Richie and Andy were the future of tennis and they would play many slam finals. well, Nole made it, Murray is getting there and Richie is not even close. too bad, too sad.

Gasquet was a star in France when he was a kid, that's how good he was. however, he is coming from a rich family, he's never been hungry. I really think that Djokovic has made it because his family gave it all and he was very hungry.

What is his potential? Do you think he's a potential multi-slam winner?

I know that, but he only ended up there because Isner/Monaco lost early. That is a fact. Actually, Almagro losing helped too. He's lucky.

Gasquet won't be there for very long, so enjoy it while you can.

Nobody benefitted from Gasquet losing early. He still jumped up a few places because they lost early.

Correct. One great tournament helped him a lot and two early losses from other players helped him even more. Almagro losing to Stepanek of all people helped too. He's just lucky.

He won't be there for very long, so that's fine.
