I've watched both of them live, and many times.
But yes, if one shot is better in Gasquet's, it's the backhand (although Leconte's slice was better, and Gasquet's backhand is overrated imo, it's a very beautiful shot at times but not such a strong shot usually)
Well, Gasquet's BH is actually everything good. Rich is the BH man, as he barely has anything else in his game.
But Henry Leconte was a much better player, perhaps too crazy to get where he could be.
I was a great fan of Guy Forget right after Leconte's best years, also we shouldn't forget Pioline, Arnaud Beoetsch, Clement was a top 10 and especially Sebastien Grosjean! World n.4 at one point
