Don't misunderstand, Birdman is a powerful striker but he can get mentally thrown.
Gasquet has wins over all the top guys. I think it's finally coming together for him.
Gasquet is kinda like Verdasco on the serve in that they both can serve 130 but rarely go for it for some reason.
I agree with you that Gasquet has looked very good so far in 2013. The offseason must have been good for him. He proved he was more fit than Davydenko in the Doha final and his forehand has been looking better as well. Hopefully he can continue this vein of form and continue to improve his forehand, because he IS a very talented player.
