Default Is Gasquet an underachiever or not??

Let's see:
-second youngest player ever to become a junior world champion
-youngest player ever to win a MS match (against Squillari, a forme FO 1/2 finalist)
-beat Davydenko, Federer(who was only beaten by 4 guys that year) and almost beat the clay GOAT in MC2005
-made 2 MS finals at 20,including one where he destroyed Berdych, Murray in 1/2 final and peak Federer for one set in 2006

BUT
-went further that 1/8 final in a GS only once (and made the 1/2 final by the way)
-never won anything better than an ATP 250
-made the TMC only once
-never beat Federer on non-clay surfaces and never beat Nadal in pro-tour(despite having been labelled as rivals since they were teenagers).

Yes, he is an underachiever.

No.

Being a tennis player is about having the whole package. A flashy forehand, a lovely backhand and a monster serve are nothing without great movement, fitness and mental ability (there are also other skills, obviously). It's not enough to have a few of those skills, you need them all.

Gasquet historically lacks the mental ability and fitness required to make it to the top.

He's his own worst enemy.

Stop with this Gasquet-mania, he is terribly overrated on this board. There are much better players.
In sucking, he will always be number one.

No. He is nothing special. By far the most overrated player in the last decade.

No need to repeat 131223524 time the same things. For sane people it is obvious what a player Gasquet is, his strong and weak sides, possible level of play and so on. If you are trying to bring some real facts to haters, you just waste your time.

Overachiever. He has a good backhand, rest of his game is average at best.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...
