Re: Gasquet hires a new coach

as much as i love watching gasquet play, he is just a mental midget, he needs a new brain.

he always chokes, choked against murray at wimbledon 2008, against gonzo at aus open 2009, and now against youzhny at this year's aus open, sigh sigh sigh...and all these three matches, either he was serving for the match or had match points.

hope he wins something major, all that talent but no mental strength to back it up.

Re: Gasquet hires a new coach

Some of the people here need a new brain more urgently, or at least a new pair of eyes. Choke against Gonzo? Seriously? Even the Youzhny match is no choke, but Gonzo match was epitome of clutch on both sides, but please continue parroting, its highly on topic after all.

Is this a serious source? Rumor about it was already out on a French site some days ago.

I don't speak Spanish. Does it give some details about the arrangement, as according to my kowledge Markus is also coaching otehr players at the moment.

Re: Gasquet hires a new coach

Start playing with some balls please. Enough of this second guessing mid-court shit, it's gonna get him nowhere because he's so mentally weak he can't even push his way to victories.

Re: Gasquet hires a new coach

I really hope it makes a difference. I actually think he would be better off if he just went it alone for a while. Maybe learn to enjoy the game again. Not everyone is capable of handleing great expectations and Richard has had a huge amount of weight placed on him from an early age. I am a big fan of Richard and just want to see him enjoy the game at this point. If he can do that then we might see him do something big.

Re: Gasquet hires a new coach

It's official according to Portuguese Eurosport.

Markus also used to be a decent claycourter back in the 90's. I think he even won an ATP title or two on clay back in the day.

He is a good coach and a South American coach is what Gasquet needs. The guy really needs to get some "Vamos" attitude if he really wants to become a regular Top 10 player. Time is really running out for him.

PORTUGUESE ARMADA!!!

Fue buena is simply the best tennis blog in Argentina.

Markus thinks that Richie is on fast track to become a regular top 20 player again... anyway, he will continue to work with MVA.

it seems like we go through new trends in tennis; Baggy began a new partnership with Nalbandian's and Del Potro's former coach Eduardo Infantino seven months ago.

It seems official, there's even a statement from Gabriel Markus on the site : "This a challenge, at the same time important and encouraging. Richard has been out of activity for some time, but he's started to find his tennis again little by little and he started the year well, making the final in Sydney. I believe he'll be on his way back to the top 20 in the coming weeks."

They also say that he's going to communicate with Richard in french and will keep working with Vassallo Arguello at the same time.

Re: Gasquet hires a new coach

Markus can be really helpful for Gasquet on strategies. But I don`t think he can provide a solution to the troubles that he shows on his confidence . Gasquet reminds me so much to Gaudio...

Re: Gasquet hires a new coach

Working with a coach whose former players were clay court specialists? Wouldn't that just put him further behind the baseline than he already is?

Nalbandian isn't a clay court specialist!
