Richard Gasquet Bio and Stats

 

Nicknamed “Baby Federer,” Richard Gasquet was the most talked about junior in the history of France (he appeared on the cover of a French tennis magazine at age 9). So far, he has not fulfilled his promise as a pro, despite flashes of brilliance. In 2006, Gasquet won three titles on three different surfaces (grass, clay and indoor carpet). The winner of the 2004 French Open mixed doubles title with compatriot Tatiana Golovin, the Frenchman made his best showing in Grand Slam singles competition by advancing to the semifinals of the 2007 Wimbledon. It is the only time Gasquet has surpassed the fourth round of a Grand Slam. Equipped with one of the best one-handed backhands in the game, Gasquet reached a career-high ranking of No. 7 after the tournament.  He was suspended for three months in 2009 after a positive test for cocaine, but the suspension was overturned after Gasquet successfully argued that he tested positive for the drug because he had kissed a woman who had used the drug in a Miami club. In 2011, Gasquet's best results were a pair of semifinal appearances in Dubai (losing to No. 2 Roger Federer) and Rome (losing to No. 1 Rafael Nadal). He concluded 2011 ranked No. 19 with a 34-20 record. In 2012, Gasquet won his seventh career title in Bangkok, was runner-up to Novak Djokovic in Toronto and finished the year ranked No. 10. Gasquet won titles in Montpellier and Doha in 2013.
