Nobody benefitted from Gasquet losing early. He still jumped up a few places because they lost early.

That makes me laugh. I know what I'm talking about. I always know what I'm talking about

Correct. One great tournament helped him a lot and two early losses from other players helped him even more. Almagro losing to Stepanek of all people helped too. He's just lucky.

He won't be there for very long, so that's fine.

Not all of them, no. Gasquet, however, was.

These are the year-end rankings, and Gasquet collected more points during 2012 than those bellow him. Doesn't matter who defended what.

Almagro losing in ridiculous fashion to a semi-retired 40-somethin guy is a testimony to his utter mugginess. He is 1-19 vs top 4 and there is nothing you can argue against that. 1-19

Gasquet #10
Almagro mug #1

Mathematically others also benefitted from Gasquet's early exit too so it's all relative. No one got a free lunch here which is exactly what you're suggesting with Gasquet.

And by the way, just because you watch tennis doesn't necessarily mean you understand it because based on your comments you clearly don't understand it...either that you you're a master at spinning things!

Come the end of the N American season next year, Gasquet will be back to 15-20ish, where he'd be now but for the Canada points.

What is his potential? Do you think he's a potential multi-slam winner?

you are right. couldn't agree more. his game is beautiful and I drool over his BH. the problem is that he has never achieved his potential IMHO. I thought, back in 2006, that Nole, Richie and Andy were the future of tennis and they would play many slam finals. well, Nole made it, Murray is getting there and Richie is not even close. too bad, too sad.

Gasquet was a star in France when he was a kid, that's how good he was. however, he is coming from a rich family, he's never been hungry. I really think that Djokovic has made it because his family gave it all and he was very hungry.

Re: Richard Gasquet in the top 10

I think it's wonderful that an athletically challenged skill-player is top-10 in the world! Richie's game is beautiful and refreshing.
