Will Gasquet vulture his way to the World Tour Finals?

Currently 7th in the race, ahead of even Federer.

Will Gasquet be able to vulture enough 250 events to make the season end Finale at the O2, or will his wings be clipped?

No.

Top 8 will be the exact that finished last year.

Re: Will Gasquet vulture his way to the World Tour Finals?

It's a possibility if he performs better in the big events. Without that, he can do what he wants in the 250's, he won't make it. His Miami run was positive, seeing that he owned 6th ranked in the world -Berdych-, quite easily.

He will need to do much better in the slams and the clay MS to hope staying in that position the whole year. I fear for his clay results, seeing the lack of fitness he displayed against Murray.

Re: Will Gasquet vulture his way to the World Tour Finals?

He can only count six 250 events for his ranking I think so he'd need to go the Ferrer route and vulture 500s with weak fields too, but I don't think he will. He should be in the alternate list again though.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

tsonga and berdych will ensure it doesn't happen

Never won a 500 in his career, will that change?

Yeah, he'll be there instead of Tsonga.

If he manages to find a 500 without any of the real top 7 or Ferrer in it, then maybe. Even then, it'd be far from a lock though as there are many players who can beat him.

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

If Tsonga's current form continues it could very well happen, unfortunately.

Gasquet is not a vulture, otherwise he'd have clinched the no.2 spot long before Murray

I would favor him over Tsonga as well. Tsonga is a bigger event player than Gasquet will ever be, but his current level is very low. He will raise it for the slams from times to times, but I don't think he will rack up enough points to qualify.

Gasquet over Tsonga in the end of the year rankings would be my pick.

Re: Will Gasquet vulture his way to the World Tour Finals?

I would like to think Cilic could finish top eight as well. Reckon Nishikori has an outside chance, but that is all but extinguished when one considers the very real threat of his season being curtailed by injury. Almagro needs to put in three or four good performances away from the dirt to get in, and that's assuming he keeps up his excellent form on clay. Gasquet is the top contender from those who didn't make it last year, obviously not counting Nadal who qualified, but was absent.

Re: Will Gasquet vulture his way to the World Tour Finals?

While his Miami run was nice to see, he will have to deliver in the big events. More precisely - I´d like to see him pass R4 in at least one of the majors this year. One would think that things could fall his way at Wimbledon at least.

Never won any thing but a 250 in his career.

Incredible performances from him to win the weak fields in Doha, who had Nadal missing, and Montpellier, where all he did was face lower ranked french men, and Nieminen.

Wonder what weak field 500 he can vulture? Basel if Fed does not play.
