Is Gasquet the most over-hyped, overrated player Ever?

it seems these days you cant read GM without finding a post/poster that believes he is the next big thing in tennis, he will be a multiple GS champ, he will beat federer and be no.1 for years, decades.
and how do the gasquettards back this up?
- they say his backhand is better than federer's, when its only a flashy shot and melts down when he is under pressure
- they remember you he beated federer in Montecarlo 2005, while a big win can happen to anyone(and notice that after nadal almost beat federer at Miami 2005, gasquet fans were laughing at rafa since he was a "dirtballer", when we all know wich youngster had more success)

and yeah his fans are the dumbest -tards, they diss evryone that doesnt like their boy(richie_21) ant they cant just get over the frenchie is overrated and will never make it past a GS QF

Gasquet and Murray are the most overrated players here at MTF.

He is overhyped, not the worst case i'd say.

the 'baby-fed' tag is cheesy and insulting king fed as well.
and those saying Muzza is the most overhyped can go and smoke Bilbo's fat one.

Reading that post, it would be fun to elect the fantard of the year.

For each category (FedTard, RafaTard, GasquetTard, Croatard, MurrayTard, DjokoTard, etc...), a tard would be choosen and each champion would meet each other in a grand final.

Re: Is Gasquet the most over-hyped, overrated player Ever?

Too fast to make such opinions he is 20 so he is very young and he had some great success so far

- he was no.1 junior being 15
- he won mixed doubles title being 16
- he was ranked no.12 being 19 and missed whole fall after UsOpen with injury
- reached 4th round of Slam twice
- reached 2 TMS finals
- he has wins over great players
- he is strong Top20 player second year in row
- he won titles on almost every surface

I think he has talent to make something big but if he makes something big I don't know he has game to do it

AND

HIS GAME IS SO WONDERFULL

yes,especially a win against Federer at 18

i remain convinced that Richard will have a breakthrough this year(and it will be at Wimbledon,you can quote me on that).....he just needs to believe more in himself when he plays the top players.

not if you look at what Roger had achieved at Richard's age.....
at 20,had Roger won 4 titles,made 2 MS finals and beaten the world number 1 at 18???
