Gasquet will play a challenger this week

Didn't notice this before, but Gasquet will play a challenger this week. Would make more sense it was one of those strong french challengers like Le Gosier or Orleans, but it's actually Szczecin (Poland) and on clay.

He is currently ranked #30, must be desperate to add easy points and get rhytm. Or maybe he got a pretty good paycheck?

Kohlschreiber was the last bizarre one. Remember he lost R1 too which made it even funnier.

Why is Gasquet playing a challenger

Surely he's only a few match wins from being back in the top 20 ..Shouldn't he be going directly to Asian swing?

Re: Gasquet will play a challenger this week

I was shocked when I noticed he was in a CH. More shocked since I just got reminded about the Davis Cup play.

I have a, shall we say, morbid personality.

Re: Gasquet will play a challenger this week

Maybe he's fixing matches? To the general public, he will be a huge favorite in a Challenger event. But to those with insider knowledge, they know he has to lose in order to play Davis Cup. Someone should make a lot of money betting against him in this event.

Re: Gasquet will play a challenger this week

They should get rid of Davis cup or at least give a big point incentive. I assume he's getting paid to be there.

He is not playing DC this week. He is completely out of form and might play this just for game practice (and a paycheck probably).

He asked for a WC here because he wasn't selected for the Davis Cup team.

Re: Gasquet will play a challenger this week

My bad, the french davis cup captain chose Pouille and Clownga as the singles players.

Anyway, I still don't udnerstand Gasquet. He`s having a poor year and he has to defend some points, but he will play Metz on indoor next week and then the Asian swing, he is too much of a good player to play a challenger right now
