Why is Gasquet overhyped?

So many people seem to be believe this guy will be a multiple GS champion.

How is that possible when he is one the most mentally incompetent players.
Do people beleive his talent is so great that his brain doesn't matter.

Baggy, Murray & Djoko will all be more successful than him in the future. Gasquet is all flash and no substance.

My logic is the light for MTF.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

Re: Why is Gasquet overhyped?

Cause he has a beautiful backhand, has an aesthetically pleasing game and beat Federer once.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

And because Federer was once a headcase too.

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion

Russophilic member of the MTF Perv Squad--objectifying Tarpischev, Kafelnikov, and Volkov like whoa.

How does beauty = results.
Nalbandian has beaten Federer multiple times but he hasn't won a GS.

Ok, time out. I am far from a Gasquet fan, just answering your question.

I have been saying Gasquet has been overhyped for ages. In that Group A/B youngsters thread I have mentioned it there.

This Gasquet he has gone from 15 yr old whiz kid, hyped to the moon and back, then he got injured and was forgotten about, then he became a has been and then he beats Federer and the bandwagon gathered major steam.

Is that clear enough?

Oh you misunderstood.

I want someone to explain to me why he is so much more special than the other young guns. Why do more people expect him to suceed in comparison to the others.

I think he is overhyped, but think about it the majority of people like the stylish type of players, which Nadal isn't, but he is effective. It goes back to the style or over substance school of thought, you should be able to see it.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Gotta agree with the style over substance part Hitler. It makes sense. Many people love the aesthetics even if it isn't effective.

He is talented will be close to an elite player but I doubt his mental toughness that all champions have. He is easilly rattled.

Re: Why is Gasquet overhyped?

monfils is far more overhyped imo
gasquet has more class, more ability and will do better if he´s injury free in the future
but that is becoming a big problem for him
so young, and so injury prone
it´s affecting his mental state also
he was mentally pretty good until the elbow thing started

from mentioned group baggy is the best player
he´s top 5 material right now
djokovic and murray still have plenty to eat to come there
so is gasquet

Re: Why is Gasquet overhyped?

Fedkilla,

For the love of God, your trolling is equivalent to the MTF version of Nadal's game.

Lacking variety. ( Lacking imagination or creativity )
Lacking style or finesse ( The manner in which you formulate your line of questioning )
Lacking versatility ( Lack of ability to adapt yourself to the situation after a sufficient rebuttal's been properly assessed )

You're basically a one dimensional troll, I hope that you're aware of the fact that something of the sort can only be effective for so long and like Nadal's, your career will be short lived.

All kidding aside, I don't do these type of posts ( because it's not my style ), but a little creativity, eh ?
