That's a fucking joke for a top 10 player to say the least.
Gasquet isn't consistently in the top 10 - he's more like a 20-10 type player realistically. Those results aren't his biggest problem -most players around his usual ranking probably have similarly terrible numbers. The biggest problem is the manner in which he loses. His matches against top players are the definition of going through the motions. He uses the same pedestrian game plan every time and proceeds to lose in straight sets without a yelp. It never looks like he tries to formulate changes or strategies that would actually make him more competitive. The mindset is like "well I've beaten who I should have and this will be an acceptable beat down". It's his life so in reality it's fine for him to continue this way - it provides him with a solid ranking and a comfortable lifestyle. It's just terrible to watch for his fans.

I don't really understand why some of his fans were so hopeful this time around. It was painfully obvious this was going to happen when you looked at his draw and it's not like Gasquet has done anything recently to suggest he would turn the tables. Tsonga played almost as bad as he can in a slam and still won easily.

Ah well, I really hoped for the QF.
Can't say I expected it.

However, 2005 Wimbledon(against Nalbandian at that time he ranked 19), USOP(against Ginepri),
2008 AO(against Tsonga but he played unbelievably), and 2012 Wimbledon(against F.Mayer at that time he ranked 29) weren't top10 opponents
He wasted many chances

Epic fail, and Tsonga was horrendous as well

Might as well put a 6-year old kid with a plastic racquet in the fourth round instead, and you can bet that Gasquet will still lose to him in 4 sets.

Wait, you actually thought he had a shot ?

Just be happy Gasquet is healthy and has found some consistency that should allow him to be in the 9-12 area of the ranking and win some titles for a while, instead of setting yourself up for inevitable disappointment.

Tsonga is just better and more talented, better serve, better forehand, better skills at the forecourt.... the outcome was entirely predictable. Gasquet has no weapons to trouble any of the current top 8 on big matches, it is how it is. He could reach another QF some time if he maintains his recent consistency and has a lower ranked opponent in R4 somewhere.

It still doesn't explain how he managed to win only one of his 14 appearances in 1/8 final of Grand Slams.
You don't deserve to be in top 10 or even to make the last 16 of Grand Slams if you're not able to beat top 8 players more than once in 14 tentatives.
I'm sure any other guy in top 30 could have probably done better than him had they had as many chances as him.

He can do it

He has had a bad start in all 3 matches. Can't afford this in the next round.

While I haven't seen Gasquet play so far, I haven't been impressed with Tsonga. So maybe this is the time.

It will be very tough for Gasquet if Tsonga is fit. He is just much better player
