Only Richie could enter top 10 by losing on round 1. Almagro must be pissed, lol

The answer is NO.

At the moment he is in TOP10 but equal point with Almagro but guys like for example Raonić, Isner, Nishikori gonna get him in rank. Now is theirs time.

anyway, he wanted to get that WTF substitute seat but nothing like Almagro's.

Besides, independently from his personality, the fact that he did already play the WTF is also a reason why he didn't have the same motivation as Almagro.

Gasquet lost 3 times in MAsters 1000 first round, Almagro only once to Haas (and it was the only time he didn't reach R16 in a Masters 1000 he played this year, it happened 4 times to Gasquet)

Anyway, I told you I took many things into account and I give my opinion.

You like Gasquet (I have nothing against him at all and I'm not a fan of Almagro at all), I understand, but that's my opinion. I like to be objective but in my eyes it doesn't necessarily imply being limited to a few numbers as many ones think objectivity means on MTF, I prefer looking at things more precisely (and I've no problem with numbers : I'm a statistician )

I do believe in luck or fate (even quite strongly), and my favorite player Federer, who knows quite well about tennis I guess, often speaks about it, either when he wins or when he loses.

you wish


all you 8ers make me

first Gasquet has only a remote chance to be top 10 next monday, because Simon will probably win the title (you read it first) unless My HeroTsonga saves the day
second, Almagro doesnt "deserve" anything, sport is not about justice or pride, it's about being the best.

Thanks, so the difference seems to be Gasquet´s Canada F, and Almagro´s clay MM points.

Re: Do you think Richard Gasquet could be top 10 again?

I promise I will not say anything anymore about Gasquet.

I'm tired about the reactions I get on this topic, even when I was the only one defending what he said in his drug case.

I am not entering a debate about my level of French or a personality discussion about a guy, I only exchanged some words with. But from the little I have seen, I remain convinced that media presence or not makes a huge difference with him.

And like it or not: Unless Simon wins Bercy, Richard will be 10 and Almagro 11 on Monday. End of debate.

And saying that Gasquet was more lucky with the draws overall you mean that very tournament, don`t you? I look at this fact vice versa it seems - Gasquet used his chance, even if it was such one only. Almagro his chances at this kind of events didn`t use in the same way at all, even once. Ergo Gasquet deserved this spot more with other more or less similar results. Is my point clear at least?
Almagro was not there in Toronto -and Cincy- (injured)

but I don't mean just Toronto.

I'm sure you know what happened to Gasquet quite well but to Almagro, I'm not so sure.

Anyway, I don't want to go in a fuss with you, is that clear ? I said my opinion, you said yours, that's enough and it's no fun for me. Anyway they have the same number of points and one is first substitute, the other one second and both will be in London even though Gasquet has more chance to play (but could very well end up not playing like Tsonga in 2010)

Not voicing his ambition in public doesn't mean he has none.
