i'm a great fan of this player and i'm more and more convinced that he'll win a GS in the future.
How many?? i would say 2 (1 Wimbledon and 1 AO) at most.
Actually i would already be happy if he won "only" one Grand Slam.
it would be a shame in my opinion if such a talented player ended up with no Slams in his bag.

Probably...if he will win one slam....he will win AO

In spite of his Wimbledon semi yesterday against Federer, he's never got beyond the fourth round in any of the slams, and no better than the third round in the French - which is surprising considering his upbringing on clay. Pity, cos he's such a hell of a nice guy. I hope I'm wrong, but I really don't think he's got a grand slam in him. Mental edge and all that sort of thing.

Probably...if he will win one slam....he will win AOI agree that's the most likely one - but not very likely given the age of Rafa, who should start reeling off Slams after Roger gets to about 18 and goes away...

Mental edge and all that sort of thing.That's obviously what he needs to work on.

He needs to start getting to the quarter and semis regularly first.

Maybe 1 to go along with his French Open Mixed Doubles title lol. So 2 total.

He can play and win on any surface. He still needs to keep improving his physical conditioning, get more experience by reaching later rounds of GS and learn how to deal with pressure at RG.

He plays his best tennis on natural surfaces, such as grass and clay, but since he is not ready (he said it himself) to win RG, then maybe Wimbledon is his best chance. On hardcourt, I get the sense that he needs to play more aggressive.

Gasquet has the talent to win a bunch. Whether or not he will win any is a different story. I love his game and he seems like a really nice guy, so I'd like to see him win a few.

If we go back to June 2003 people were asking the exact same questions about Federer.
If you have the sort of natural talent that Gasquet has, then if he wins his first slam by the age of 22 I reckon he can go on to win as much as 10. Someone with that kind of talent will be hard to stop if he puts it all together in the next two years.

? Well he is only 21 and has the type of game that matures late (like Federer's). Maybe he is just breaking out. Plus Federer was brought up on clay. Are you suggesting that is his best surface?

He's a great player but I don't see him getting past the other young players. As of now, it seems Nadal, Djokovic, and Murray put it together better.

He is a young and very talented player. His match against Roddick showed that he has the goods. At such a young age there is a lot of room for improvement and I like him a lot so I hope he does win some slams. I'm sure he is capable of it.

I'll be surprised if he doesn't win one, at least. Seriously, that's all I can say, right now.

PS: But I'll vote "more than 3", just for the heck of it.

I think he'll be the next Wimbledon champ thats not named Federer. I think he can win at least 2 or more Wimbledons. Add a US Open or perhaps an Australian in there and I say more than 3.

He looks like a 3 to me...He has so much potiential and I just think the draws are what is hindering him. He needs to play consistantly in more tournaments to get better draws. With better draws and a better ranking, he can do this thing!

Are you serious about this one??
Has Murray won 4 titles,made 2 MS finals and a Grand Slam 1/2 final yet???

I think he will be like James Blake. He will make great strides at Grand Slams but he will not be able to win one. But nevertheless he is a very talented player

i truly think that Gasquet will have a far better career than Blake.
For a beginning,Blake was nowhere near as good as Gasquet when he was 21
at 21,Gasquet has already won 4 titles,made a GS 1/2 final and 2 MS finals(both lost against Federer),not to mention he has beaten Federer at 18.

i really think he is a late bloomer. so i think he will have at least 5 (mostly wimbly's, maybe 1 AO, and 1 FO). and you can't compare him to murray because head to head gasquet rapes him.

I really like Gasquet but I think Murray and Djokovic, along with one or two of the others will become really tough to beat and Gasquet's incosistency in performing at the standard we know he can produce will consistently let him down in my opinion.

I'd like to be proven wrong though, he's beautiful to watch and a nice lad.

Federer also had the same problem of inconsistency at a young age. Gasquet is much more talented and complete than the other young players save Nadal. Murray is a good player but I don't see him winning any slams. The next generation of Grand Slam winners after Federer will be Nadal (still), Gasquet and Djokovic. Gasquet has the ability to be as dominant as Federer. He's just got to put it all together.

I think possibly 1 or 2 if he plays until hes in his mid 30s.

Needs to seriously improve his serve to win a GS on any surface other than clay...and with Nadal in the mix a clay GS is gonna be tough.
Obviously he has all kinds of potential, and he's great fun to watch.

Probably 1 in the absence of the top 3 players (Fed, Nad & Djoko).

I say Gasquet will win 1 GS...probably Wimbly. But Im pretty worried about his carreer because he reminds me a lot Henri Leconte...

None, Rafael, Djokovic, Murray... too much competition.

Plus, by the time Roger, Andy, James Blake, and Rafa stop winning there will be more young prospects to challenge Gasquet.

I think Djoko and Murray (if he stays fit) will both win a grand slam before Gasquet, Djoko because he has the all around game, dour grinding ability and athleticism, Murray because he's got a surprisingly big serve, great range of shots and thinks well on court

he is way better than Henri Leconte in my opinion.
Has Leconte for instance beaten the number 1(and probably the best ever one) at 18??

Obviously he has all kinds of potential, and he's great fun to watch.

Don t forget he served 23 aces against Roddick (a one being at 134 mph).
i would say he has improved his serve......now he needs to work on his forehand,especially when he moves back.

Nil. Along with him and a few other hyped players that just aren't good enough while Feds and Nadal are around.

He can win around 3 I think. He is talented, but even if he has 6 good years left after this one, it will be hard to win more then 1 slam every 2 years with Federer and Nadal each with several great years left probably, and Murray and Djokovic coming up with him. Actually if he wins 3 with that competition he will have done great, but I think he can do it. He is very talented and will be up with the rest contending for slams. He might win his 3 at different venues each maybe.

10 is way over the top. Gasquet is very talented but he is not the next Federer. Also remember when Federer started winning slams the most established forces at the top were older Agassi, Hewitt, and Roddick. Gasquet is coming up at a time when Federer and Nadal are already at the top and so dominant, and Nadal was born within a month of him. Much harder situation he is coming into then Federer. No way he would win anywhere near 10 slams.

Yeah Gasquet has way more talent then Blake. Blake has already peaked, and it wasnt even that amazing a peak. 2 U.S Open quarters, some dinky tournament titles, and 2 smackdowns in big Masters event finals to Federer.

I think he could eventually win one. It's a possibility, if he works hard at it. Although not right now. He's young so hes got time.

Gasquet will be better than Nadal on fast surfaces,mark my words.......on clay,that's a different story obviously.
anyway i agree with you about the rest: he probably won t win anywhere near 10 slams.
we must remember that a player like Federer comes only once in a lifetime

I think he's gonna win 1 FO, 2 Wimbledon, & 1 US Open by the time he's done.

Outside Fed and Roddick, he has been one of the most if not the most consistant grass courters over the last two years. He could win a Wimbledon in his career. If he gets some confidence going who knows. I think he'll win at least one slam.
