Gasquet : «Au début, on manque de repères»
Par Cécile Soler, 25-06-2012

Richard Gasquet est satisfait de son premier tour - Le Biterrois a passé facilement le cap du premier tour à Wimbledon en se défaisant de l’Allemand Tobias Kamke, 6-2, 6-2, 6-2.

Comment vous sentez-vous après ce premier tour aisé ?
Richard Gasquet : Je suis content d’avoir gagné en trois sets, cela me laisse plus de jus pour la suite. Je n’ai pas de souci particulier, pas de blessure.

La transition est brutale entre la terre battue et l’herbe, comment la gérez-vous ?
Ma défaite à Eastbourne ne m’a pas traumatisé, parce que l’important, c’est ici, à Wimbledon. Mais lorsque l’on arrive sur gazon, on est crispé, souvent on manque de repères et on se fait vite breaker. On a moins de marge et cela peut se jouer à pas grand-chose. Il suffit d’un ou deux points de déconcentration et on se retrouve avec un set de perdu. Mais plus on avance dans le tournoi, mieux on se sent sur le court.

Quel est votre programme entre ce tournoi et les Jeux Olympiques, auxquels vous allez participer sur ce même site de Wimbledon ?
Normalement je ne joue pas de tournois. En fonction de ce que je ferai ici, je peux obtenir des wild-cards dans des tournois sur terre battue, mais honnêtement je ne pense pas. Je ne vais pas rester en Angleterre pendant trois semaines, alors je reviens le 23 juillet et nous resterons deux jours au village olympique. Je pense que nous joueurs de tennis avons une grosse envie de faire quelque chose dans ces JO, mais nous avons beaucoup moins de pression qu’un escrimeur ou un judoka, qui jouent beaucoup sur les Jeux, alors que nous il y a un Grand Chelem trois semaines avant et un autre un mois et demi après.

Gilles Simon a été élu au conseil des joueurs de l’ATP, est-ce important d’avoir un représentant ?
C’est bien qu’il y soit, c’est un mec intelligent. C’est bien qu’il y ait un Français et qu’il s’investisse là dedans. Mais ce n’est pas le président de l’ATP, je ne pense pas qu’il puisse tout bouleverser.

Nothing special, the defeat in Eastbourne did not traumatise him, as Wimby is the important tourney, if one isn't focused a match on grass can be lost very easily. But the longer one plays on grass, the better one feels about it. Happy to be through in three sets without losing too much energy. Depending on his results in Wimby he might take a WC for a clay tourney, but he considers it unlikely. Tennis players have less pressure at the Olympics, compared to fencers or judokas, as there are more GSs a year. He is positive about Simon in the ATP players Council, but remains realistic, as he is not the president, he won't be able to change everything.

A word from Julien about Richard in the bronze medal match:

Quote:
Vous avez eu un rôle moteur pour Richard Gasquet ?
Richard était vachement à l'écoute. Je ne lui donnais aucun conseil technique ou tactique. Tennistiquement, il n'y a rien à dire chez Richard, il est très fort. C'est juste dans l'attitude, dans la volonté. J'ai essayé de le mettre en confiance. Pendant le premier set, je n'ai pas arrêté de lui dire que c'était lui le plus fort, que c'était un monstre... Mine de rien, il sort un coup de génie sur la balle de set. Moi j'essayais d'avoir un niveau de jeu moyen qui nous permettait d'avoir des occasions. Il a été hyper solide.
Richard was really listening. I did not give him any technical or tactical advice. Tennisticly, there is nothing to say to Richard, he is very strong. It's just the attitude, the will. I tried to give him confidence. During the first set, I have not stopped to tell him that he was the strongest, that he was a beast... Casually, he pulled out a stroke of genius on the set point. I was trying to have a medium level of play that allowed us to have opportunities. He was super strong.

Gasquet préfère Londres aux palmiers

Dans L'Equipe d'hier, on apprend que Richard Gasquet ira dans tous les cas à Londres lors de la semaine du Masters. S'il se qualifie pour le tournoi des maîtres, il jouera au tennis. Sinon, il prendra une semaine de vacances dans la capitale britannique. Un choix différent de la plupart des autres joueurs qui préfèrent aller se mettre les pieds en éventail sur des plages paradisiaques à cette période de l'année. "Ben je suis célibataire" explique-t-il. "Je ne vais pas aller sur une île déserte avec un pote ! (rires)" Plus sérieusement, Gasquet déclare : "Je serais bien retourné voir un match d'Arsenal et faire du shopping chez Harrods. Mais je préfère cent fois aller au Masters. Même comme remplaçant, j'y vais sans hésiter."

Default Re: Articles & Interviews

Like Federer and Murray, Gasquet has called for more blood tests.

"J’ai des contrôles partout, toutes les semaines. J’en ai parlé à Bâle avec Federer, j’ai aussi des contrôles à la maison. On a dit qu’Armstrong avait eu 500 contrôles, et zéro positif, donc c’est qu’il y a un truc qui ne marche pas. C’est anormal qu’un mec, certainement dopé, traverse 500 contrôles sans être déclaré positif. Il faut faire des contrôles sanguins, et pas uniquement d’urine. Je suis prêt à faire tous les tests qu’il faut, mais il faut progresser dans ce domaine, parce que les tricheurs ont vraiment de l’avance sur les tests. C’est mon avis, je ne suis pas un professionnel non plus. Sur le tennis, je n’ai pas forcément de doute, donc tant qu’il n’y a pas de preuve. Je n’ai eu que 2 ou 3 tests sanguins dans ma vie. Il y a un truc pas normal."

Richard, always very eloquent in interview :

Q. What can you say about your opponent? Is he a player to watch in the future?

RICHARD GASQUET: I think he's a good player, but he's a good player. He's in the third round, so for sure he's tough to beat.

Halle, 13 June 2013, victory against Melzer, 6-3 6-1.

Q: It’s been a few days before your first match? How do you feel? How was the time off for you?

GASQUET: I feel great. I came here on Sunday. I had three days to practice. I knew it’s important to be here, to prepare for Wimbledon. And I really want to play well. I practiced well. The first match was difficult but I played really good.

Q: Would you consider grass your best surface? Your best Grand Slam is always at Wimbledon?

GASQUET: I don’t know if it’s my best surface but I know I can perform on this court. I know I play well on this court, I know I play well in Wimbledon. So, for sure it’s one of my best surfaces. But every match is tough and difficult. I’m trying to do my best.

Q: How do you pick Halle over Queens?

GASQUET: It’s nice to come here. Long time I didn’t come. I played Queens many years but I remember great memories from this court. I played Davis Cup against Tommy Haas, I won. I did a good match against Federer on the centre court. I played a couple of great matches here. So, I really wanted to come back. The tournament organisation is perfect, the roof is very good. It’s a big tournament. That‘s why I’m here.

Q: What do you think how far you can go this week?

GASQUET: I can go far for sure. I can lose too. Every match is difficult as I said. Maybe tomorrow Florian Mayer. I lost to him last year in Wimbledon. He’s a tough opponent on grass. It will be difficult. But I’m here to win, to try my best I can do. I will try to do the best match I can, to fight 100%, then we will see.

Post match interview after losing to Djokovic in Montreal:



N. DJOKOVIC/R. Gasquet

6-1, 6-2

An interview with:

RICHARD GASQUET

THE MODERATOR: Questions in French, please.

Q. It was even tougher than you expected? That's not the sort of match you wanted.
RICHARD GASQUET: Of course not. It was very tough. I did everything I could, but he did everything better than I did. Today my bad serve made me sink, my backhand didn't seem to work, while his backhand was extremely fast.

Q. Yesterday you showed that you had a fighting spirit turning the match around. How about today?
RICHARD GASQUET: Today it was Djokovic. Nishikori is a good player. Djokovic is No. 1 in the world. The score might have been a little bit better if I had been able to serve better, but he is incredible. He is the player who impressed me most since I've been playing tennis. He plays extremely fast.

Q. And what about Federer or Nadal, they don't seem to give you as much trouble?
RICHARD GASQUET: Yes, indeed. They give me fewer problems. He's a lot stronger than I am on both sides, and he hits the ball very flat. My backhand doesn't give him trouble at all, and it's a weapon I need and often use against other players. He also serves very well.
As far as my serve was concerned, today I didn't have very much of a reference to serve well. In fact, it was a catastrophe.

Q. But you had a plan with your coach?
RICHARD GASQUET: The plan was to hold the line. I believe it didn't work very well today (smiling).

Q. During the past six matches you played against him, you didn't win a single set. Is there a sort of block against him for you?
RICHARD GASQUET: Yes, I believe so. His game bothers me a lot more than the game of the other three top players. He's the most difficult player to play for me.
He has an extremely fast backhand and very good returns. For me, he's the strongest player. Could have improved the score a little bit, but it all went so fast.

Q. Apart from that match, you played a good tournament here.
RICHARD GASQUET: Yes. I'm happy. Yeah, I was able to beat good players. I made it to the quarterfinals. But I'm very disappointed about the match today. Seeing that I was totally harmless on the court is tough.
But if I had been told before the tournament that I would play Djokovic in the quarterfinals here, I would have signed up for it.

Q. What about the balls? Many players complained about them.
RICHARD GASQUET: They are extremely bad balls. As soon as I arrived here, people talked to me about it. It's quite rare, but it's really the first time I've seen balls that are as bad. They are flying. They are too light. They're quite difficult to control.
But this has nothing to do with my loss today.

Q. After the loss against Wawrinka, you seemed to have lost your energy somehow.
RICHARD GASQUET: No, it's okay. I played a very good match yesterday. Of course, that loss against Wawrinka didn't help. But I'm just starting the season. We'll see how I play in the US Open.

Q. So we can say this match was only a Djokovic phenomenon?
RICHARD GASQUET: I believe so. Maybe I can play a little bit better in the beginning of the season than I'm playing now, but I had pretty good results. I didn't go past the third round in Wimbledon, though.
Of course, today I lost 1-2. I believe I won't be the only one during the season.

Q. Istomin apparently did a little bit better than you did against Djokovic.
RICHARD GASQUET: I can't tell you why. For me, Djokovic is the most difficult player.

Q. If Raonic makes it to the final here, you will be out of the top 10. What does that mean to you?
RICHARD GASQUET: Well, he played a very good tournament. I tried the best I could. I was quite consistent during the year. But being out of the top 10 will not change my life.
Anyway, I'm very happy with my victory yesterday, just the way I played that match. I'm happy I was able to make it to the quarterfinals for the beginning of the season. This is a mistake. What he meant is: after the summer-break.

Thanks for posting that, Puschkin.

It's hard to get a feel for the tone of the interview without seeing or hearing him, but just from the words it sounds like he knew before the match he would lose badly to Djokovich, is not too concerned about his top 10 ranking, and that he's very happy with his tournament overall. I'm quite surprised to hear him say all of those things - maybe it's just the way I'm reading it, or maybe he's playing things down in the interview.

This phrase made me think along similar lines, as if he was not ready for more than a QF, but I don't know why.

Yes, I completely agree with you. I was a bit disappointed to hear him say that, but then again I don't know what his situation is.
