What the hell :eek: Gianluigi is ranked n.4 among juniors and is just 16, and this is not the first time he wins among seniors. But two sets (just 6 games lost) against world number 218? :eek:

That's the right way, GQ. Don't stop!

Very impressive win. But how Estrella is #218 with his results this year is unfathomable.

Really good win for someone who is 16 years old. Every player you beat within the top 800 when you are not 18 is quite good :)

I saw Quinzi last week and he reminded me in a big way to Giannessi, with more power and a better backhand. This is a great result for him. Estrella is more of a hardcourt player, but regardless, to defeat a top 250 player this easily at 16 is extremely impressive.

Today's win is still very much impressive, as above mentioned defeat was his 1st ever challenger play.(For this match he got WC)
From other records it seems he only played 1 match on challenger's level - quallies so far and that was at age of 14!

:unsure: I watched the whole match and Pashanski played almost like a Top 100, while Gianluigi himself said that he has played quite bad :shrug:

No one is saying that he will be as good as Gasquet or better, but this is an impressive win for a baby-teenager :shrug: Plus, he is number 4 among juniors, but those who are over him are all '94 boys, so :hatoff:

Yes, which proves he's awfully talented. With the right head and better mentality he could have been a slam winner. He certainly had the talent to do it. Nobody is saying Quinzi already has the future nr 1 inthe bag, but this just proves he's gifted.

Most tennis pros dream of having a career like Gasquet's not sure what your point is

Quinzi at least looks like a good Italian prospect finally, its been a while for them

That's wrong. Players could be precocious but then stagnated. Gasquet was the most precocious player ever. But he is not that good in reality. He is not slam material. Beating a top 50 at 15 means you are professional material and top 50 material easily but that never means he can win a slam. Quinzi beating a top 250 at 16 only means he is going to be pro and for sure crack the top 100 but we can't say anything more.
My point is: stop saying players are going to be slams winners because they beat well-ranked players at an early age. Thanks.

Who's saying Quinzi will be a slam winner? We are just all looking for some new talents, which is always exciting, especially when the current 'youngsters' like Harrison, Dimitrov just seem to stagnate and look like the will never be slam contenders.

Gasquet's case vaccinates me for life. Don't start to expect Quinzi to be a future slam contender just because of this win. Just expect him to crack the top 100 first. I hate people who put the cart before the horse.

You contradict yourself dude. You said before in this thread that the fact Gasquet beat a top 50 at 15 was the proof how extremely talented he is and how he didn't fulfill his potential despite having a hig career ranking at 7.

No one has written that GQ is going to be a GS champion sorry :shrug: Don't try to imagine posts that don't exist to solidificate your prejudice.

That's simply a delightful result for a so young boy. Not everybody can do that ;) Ciric lost to Trusendi 2 and 3 to make an example.

I know this result is exciting for Italians but I am not sure it means as much as some are saying. Estrella beat unranked player 62 36 75 in qualifying. Pirozzi is 26 and has an ITF career singles record of 11 and 28 without a main draw win at even a futures event since Romania 2010 when he entered as a LL and made the QF there. Seems more on Estrella than on Quinzi. That said, I hope Quinzi proves me wrong in the upcoming rounds.

tennis has changed a lot since gasquet had his wins as a 16 year old.

players are taking longer and longer to break through. there is only one teenager in the top 175 so it's exciting to see a kid who turned 16 three months ago picking up promising results.
