i think it's fair to say that grass is the surface which suits his game the best(not a coincidence he has won his only tournament on grass)........but do you think he has what it takes to win Wimbledon in the future(once Federer will retire obviously :lick: )???

I'd give him about 3 years

he's the best talent on the tour, but needs to shape up on the big points

his grass court game well if he's taken a set off fed, and won more points than fed, that says something. Even Hot-Rod can't do that.

Booming serve, biggest backhand on tour, and his forehand is no joke either!

it's an area where i think he has really improved comparing to the last few years.
in a risk of repeating it,i just hope now he'll stay injury free....that's the most important thing for him.

His game is well suited to grass, so I see no reason why he cant win it, someday.

I would not be surprised if Gasquet won any slam in the future. He has an allcourt game and is very good on all the surfaces. When Federer falls from grace I hope Gasquet or Berdych dominate.

true dat. I can't wait until the Gasquetards are anointed to the position that will be formerly held by the Fedtards.

I don't know if I'm sleep deprived, hormonal, or always like this. I might just be frustrated because this is the 693rd poll this week. I will probably always vote no, to spite the poll starter. However, I appreciate that you actually made a poll, and didn't leave it as a comment-only thread :hatoff::yeah:

especially talented players like Gasquet take a long time to develop..Federer only got good in 2003, before then he kept getting beaten by hewitt (but he was supremely talented at the time)

Gasquet is only 19, Federer is 24, so theres about a 5+ year age gap. Hopefully Gasquet breaks through in a year or two

I think he can certainly, not sure as to wether he will. It really depends hugely on his mental development, the strange thing is he isn't that bad as a choker type player mentally, it just seems that he cares very little about tennis a lot of the time.

As for grass being his best surface I disagree, he has much better results on clay than on grass. An AMS semi and an AMS final. That is better than a small grass court tournament, I don't deny that he is good on grass but so far he has looked to be better on clay than on grass. I think he will develop into a superb all court player.

I agree he's an all court player, but for a first Slam if I should pick one, it would be Wimbledon, simply because the surface is much less demanding than clay.... and Roland Garros has this mysterious power of putting so much pressur on french players :angel:

yeah but he won his only tournament on grass ,don t forget (not to mention he made the 1/8 final of US Open and Wimbledon last year while in RG he made the third round at best)
and because he beat Federer on clay and not on grass certainly doesn t mean clay is his best surface
actually ,if you look at how Gasquet plays,it's obvious to see that his game is a lot more suited to fast surfaces than to clay

I said nothing about him beating Federer on clay and I realise that him taking Federer so close on grass is probably a similar achievement to actually beating him on clay. The draw played a huge part toward his RG results as well. Last year he lost to Nadal who was in the middle of a still running 60 match winning streak on clay, this year he was not fully fit in my opinion and still took a set of the third seed. Not bad.

I think he is an all court player, his backhand is certainly a weapon on any surface but I think it is more suited to clay, then again he has the serve for a fast court. I don't disagree that he can be good on grass I just think he is an all court player.

i know but i said it because generally the guys who are saying that Clay is Gasquet's best surface are saying that only because he beat Federer on this surface.....but it seems i was wrong in your case :)

Hum I agree with richie21, Richard himself said that french players were stronger on grass ...I really don't think clay is his best surface, it's like Federe who was raised on clay but now has his greatest( lol) difficulties on this surface...I know Richard has made great results on clay, but still grass season is so short that I think we haven't seen all his skills on this surface yet
