Gasquet + red shirt = beating Murray?

Evidence has shown that athletes who wear red win more sporting competitions than those who don't:

I found it interesting that once Gasquet changed from an aqua-colored shirt to a red shirt he won sets 2 and 3 in his match against Murray. Confirmation or coincidence?

Murray had won 11 sets against Gasquet in a row before Gasquet came from behind to win the match, in a red shirt.

There was a ship out in the ocean, and the guy up in the crow's nest says, "Enemy ship ahead!" The captain says, "Bring me my red shirt." And the servant says, "Uh... okay." So he gets the captains red shirt, and the captain puts it on. And as the battle proceeded, they didn't lose one sailor. At the end of the battle, the servant comes up and says, "Before the battle, you said to bring you your red shirt. Wh- Why your RED shirt?" And the captain says, "Because, if I happen to be shot, and started bleeding, the sailors wouldn't see the blood and would continue to fight on!" The sailor said, "Oh! That's brilliant, right there!" The next morning, the guy in the crow's nest yells, "20 enemy ships ahead!" The captain then said, "Bring me my brown pants!"

Also consider...Gasquet is 2-10 against Fed.
What colour shirt was he wearing in those two wins?

Yup.

Plus, when you wear red shirts basically in half the time of your career there's a good chance that you'd get some big wins in them, no? :)

Just noticed that he lost to Ferrer wearing red shirt in set 2 as well. :cry: I haven't watched much Gasquet but if he always throws on a red shirt in set 2 then that's not much help here.

Aw man, from a 2011 AP News article:

---------------------
Gasquet has designs on deep run in Paris

"PARIS (AP) -- Richard Gasquet hopes tactical tweaks, improved fitness and a lucky red shirt will help him go deep at the French Open this year.

...

"Known for being superstitious, Gasquet said he may well wear the red shirt he donned when he beat Federer in Italy.

"I try not to think about these things, the lucky charms,'' Gasquet said. "I played with it for a while, that's true. Maybe I will continue. Why not?''
---------------------

Apparently he continues to this day... :eek:
