Gasquet to be coached part-time by Grosjean

Richard Gasquet will work with Sebastien Grosjean for a few weeks a year, reports the French press. Eric Deblicker will continue to be Gasquet's full-time coach.

Is there any hope for Gasquet?

i still believe in reeshard. he's got one more deep run left, similar to wimby, maybe even further.

Seb was not known to be the King of the physical condition, I'm not sure about that. At least he is trying something different.

I don't think it's useful to have Grosjean on board, as well as Deblicker.

Like the idea very much.

Gasquet BH and Seb FH would be a sight to behold. I'd probably piss my pants from excitement like a puppy

Do some of you guys even know Sebastien Grosjean? The guy have one of the best forehand ever and packs a huge punch for his stature. It's very unfortunate he also have one of the shittest backhand ever on tour. He's s small guy, 175 cm, but ridiculously quick (his footwork is very similar style to Federer's) and I will never forget the 185km/hr forehand he pulled off in 2001. His forehand is by far one of the most devastating shot when it is on song and if you put Gasquet's backhand and Grosjean's forehand together you are picturing a player I believe as devastating as Federer or better. Of course way easier said than done, but if Grosjean can help Gasquet improve that forehand that'll be brilliant. However Gasquet's foot speed is also a huge problem and that's an even harder department to improve upon.

Makes sense. Gasquet is also a part time player.

Grosjean: Stop being a pushing mug, Richard

Gasquet: No

Grosjean: ...

Would like to hear Grosjean the Great's views on this actually
