I think Gasquet by a slight margin. 5-5 HH both have 10 titles and similar playing styles. Gasquet slightly better career high. It's very close really but given that Gasquet has a few more years in him than Youzhers I think he'll retire with a better career high, more titles and more prize money.

Youzhny. Won the bigger titles (two 500s to Gasquet's 0) and made QF of all Slams + some notable Slam scalps.

Gasquet has done more and is 4 years younger. Obviously him.
Gasquet has more raw talent and in a single match he has a better chance of winning but Youzhny has made more of his talent (Gasquet is somewhat of an underperformer, Youzhny is not)

Has Gasquet ever won a 500? Did he make a Slam SF before Colonel? No.

That's all that needs saying. The answer is Colonel and it's disgusting that the poll is so close.

Until Gasquet wins a 500 and makes one more slam SF, and maybe even QF's of all slams, he cannot be considered better than Colonel.

On the other hand, Youzhny is absolutely dreadful at Masters series events. Never even made a semi-final, whereas Gasquet has three finals.

So who made a slam SF before the other is a criteria?
Also, why are people talking about hype and potential? The question is who is better, not who lived up to expectations more.

In terms of achievement:
Youhzny has much more slam QFs(4 more), much better top10 record(by 3.7%) and 2 500 titles.
Gasquet has much more weeks in top 10(4 times as many), much better MS record(by 17%, 3 F, 4SF), much better overall record(by 4.7%).
I'd say Gasquet gets the edge because he is 4 years younger.

Code:
