three great talent... who will likely to reach #1 first? im not saying they WILL or they WONT but who is the closest? I think it could be Gasquet, it will be a long shot but it could be done. hes doing very well, moving up the rankings very fast and defeated Federer in 3 sets(was it?) unlike Nadal. but statiscally speaking, Nadal will be the closest. but he have to get over the Fed hump. its not just beating someone good, it also helps your confidence by a lot, and for a physically talented player like Gasquet, a little confidence would be the only thing missing from his greatness.
