Default Will Gasquet complete the CY(R16)GS?

Time to preempt any ridiculous Gasquet threads, so I'll keep the ante low. Gasquet has made 3 consecutive 4th rounds in grand slams, and 6 of the last 8. Can he get the full set? He just has so much potential to get to the Sunday of a big tournament. (The first Sunday, I mean)

As you can see, he's serious this year. What do you think?

He's priming himself perfectly. If he secures a 13-16 seed, he will face a top 4 seed in the round of 16.

Gasquet's game is great for beating lower ranked players but isn't much chop against the top guys.

Assuming his rank remains the same, yes.

The problem with Gasquet is that he isn't fit enough, in all his fourth round matches he looks jaded and hangover. He could reach greater than fourth round if you were to ask me.

I still love him. Richie is a great player, my biggest disappointment tho, but I keep hoping that 'one day' he'll do something amazing. I agree with a poster above me who says he is not fit enough ... I'm not either, but I'm not a tennis pro, lol ...

It's incredible Gasquet's record in slams, what is it now, 10 4th round appearances and only advanced once?

13 and yes, 12 losses. I think only Robredo has worse numbers at this stage.

Robredo is 5-13 in Grand Slam R16s. Paul-Henri Mathieu is 0-6.

On a serious note, Gasquet lacks testicular fortitude to somehow break 4R barrier

Feel sorry for Richie. I hope he wins big matches once again soon (excluding toronto). I could watch him all day hitting those glorious bh.

The greatest sports journalists in the land are already sharpening their pens in readiness for recording this achievement.

Go Gasquet.

That picture is awesome. If I was a professional tennis player, I'd be Gasquet.

Without the backhand.
