a francis gasquet's interview translated in english from

Hello Everyone,

Although it's always better to give good news rather than bad ones, I still came to deliver the latest news about Richard like I promised this Monday.

As you already know, he was forced to withdraw before his second round match against Donald Young. This is really unlucky considering the fact that he had to retire with a blister in Cincinnati. We arrived in New York last Monday to see him right after he had defeated the Argentine Sergio Roitman. Richard felt pretty good about his tennis game and he had a fairly favorable draw until the potential fourth round match against Roger Federer.

His matched against Young wasn't scheduled until Thursday and so we spent a lot of time in the players' lounge and in the Lacoste store to watch other matches. It was really cold with the air conditioning on, and as a result Richard caught a cold. You would have felt just as powerless in the same situation, and you could have only hoped that you would be well enough in time for the match. Ever since certain tennis players that were suspected of doping blamed it on salt pills distributed by the ATP, the ATP no longer gives anything to a sick player. You can understand why.

We woke up Doctor Montalvan in Paris early so that he could prescribe some medication that we could buy over there; Richard was in no shape to go out on the tennis court. His legs hurt and he was completely exhausted. You could imagine how disappointing this was for everyone, especially for him! Unfortunately whatever he did would have placed him at fault: for instance, the public would not have been pleased if he went on the tennis court and had to retire at the beginning of a set. If he was treated with the prescribed medication, he would have been dangerously close to the controlled limits for anti-doping. Finally, he received a different type of criticism for withdrawing. That's how life goes!

This latest physical problem is the result of a lack of medical preparation on behalf of the French tennis program. The tennis season is long and difficult. It's not unusual to see foreign players accompanied by at least three other people: including a coach, assistant, physiotherapist, a doctor or who knows what else! Besides that, we should try to determine if Richard might actually have a problem with sensitive ears. He had the same problem at Indian Wells in Miami two years ago.

We returned to Paris last weekend. We attended the soccer match between Paris-Saint-Germain (PSG) and Olympique de Marseille (OM) at the Parc des Princes (Park of Princes) on Sunday evening. It was a wonderful match. Richard is currently at his home in Neuchatel and he will come back to Paris on Friday to attend the kick-off for the rugby World Cup. We are going to the Stade de France (French Stadium) to watch the match between France and Argentina. The French rugby team should win because they seem to be very, very strong!

Richard will not begin to train again until the end of next week. Therefore, he will not play in the tournament in Bucharest. He will make his return to the circuit at the tournament in Mumbai, India on September 17th.

Thank you to everyone for your support in both the good and the not so good moments. This is how a tennis player's career goes!

Thanks a lot Aceman :hatoff:. I tired to read it in French but with my limited knowledge of the language I messed up most of the article.

Hope Richard gets well and he does not have the same virus that knocked out Ancic for several months, and Viadisova and another woman (can't remember who) on the tour that I heard about on TV yesterday.

I'm sure Francis' "c'est la vive" (how's that French) attitude is helpful to Richard during these disappointing times.

Anyway let's hope he stays injury (and that includes blisters) and illness free for the rest of the year and he gets back his Wimbledon form plus more for 2008, or even better for the indoor season this year but that might be too much to expect after a summer with so few matches played.

OMG that is so annoying that he is going to the France v Argentina match. My family and I are going to Paris for the rugby but we don't go until next week and we had to push it back a week because my dad had work and we were going to go to that match! ARGH I totally could have gone crowd spotting for him!

Richard's (or should I say Francis') website is nice for his fans. Wonder how well Richard likes everyone knowing that he had his nose cleaned out while on break. Anyway appreciate the up date on what's going on with his playing schedule and his health.

Who ever set up this web site made it look very personal from Richard (and his dad) - nice PR touch. Oh yes and the English version is WONDERFUL for those of us who don't speak French - glad they didn't forget about us!

Now hope to see some talk about Richard's victories on this website really soon!

Is this an official site? since Francis has a little area I'm guessing it is.Richard should get his own blog on that. That would be nice, to actually hear what richie thinks about things.

Why is this website closed now :confused:
