Gasquet finally to make GS QF again at AO-13

With this kind of draw.. Man, I will be hugely disappointed if he loses this chance. Old Montanes, not so great Falla, then apparently grandpa Haas who will find it hard to take 3 sets against Richie with many long rallies all the way and finally Tsonga I guess who isn`t even completely fit it seems.

He won`t get draw better than this to do it again. That 4th round streak But I feel the curse will be broken.

Thoughts?

Gasquet is next №1

Fully agree.

If Tsonga is fit and reaches round 4, no way this happens. If not, this could actually be a great chance, with Haas not able to last through 5 setters in his old age and a generally mug draw.

Tsonga is fit. Sorry. Anyway Tsonga would beat Federer in the Quarters while Gasquet would choke and lose 6-2 6-2 6-3.

Re: Gasquet finally to make GS QF again at AO-13

It's not a gimme that Tsonga will even make R4 to face Gasquet. Do we really know if he's back to full fitness?

I would love to see Gasquet and Federer play in the QF here...I like the way they play. It probably wouldn't be too competitive a game, though.

Re: Gasquet finally to make GS QF again at AO-13

With Tsonga's injury and Haas having the bad-for-slams no endurance/huge choker combination, would not be shocked

Montanes, Falla, Haas should be easy for Richie. I'm not so sure that Tsonga is unfit. It seems that he has been hitting the practice courts really hard. Still, good chance to reach the QF.

Maybe I am wishing for too much, but a Gasquet-Llodra R4 would be great

Re: Gasquet finally to make GS QF again at AO-13

Falla can randomly play well and he can easily lose to Haas. Unless Tsonga is severely impaired by injury he'll most likely destroy him in the 4th round. The 4th round streak will live on.

Re: Gasquet finally to make GS QF again at AO-13

I was about to laugh at OP, but then I took a closer look at what's the competition for that place. as unbelievable as it sounds he does have a very good chance to do it.

then, of course, he will be a precious bye for fed in important part of week 2.

Re: Gasquet finally to make GS QF again at AO-13

If Tsonga is in good from, Gasquet has no chances. We talk about a man who played 8 Grand Slam QF, 4 Grand Slam SF, 1 Grand Slam Final, 1 WTF Final, who won Masters 1000 title, who beat Federer, Djokovic, Nadal AND Murray in Grand Slams. What about Gasquet ?

There is no debate...
