Hamburg, 14 May 2005



Press Conference with RICHARD GASQUET

Gasquet vs. Rochus 6:1, 6:1





Q: Congratulations. It must be a wonderful feeling to get into a Masters Series final?

A: I speak really bad in English (laughs). Yes, I am so happy to be in the final in Hamburg. It’s incredible. For me to play a final against Federer it’s a dream.



Q: It must be a dream for an 18 year old to go into a final against a player with such quality and class and have a winning record against him.

A: Yes I won in Monte Carlo but it was an upset for me. He is the favourite tomorrow, but I will play a great match tomorrow. I will do my best and we will see. But I will be very happy to be in the final.



Q: Has it been difficult to play seven matches and do you feel tired?

A: Yes, I was tired, but Rochus was more tired, I think. Tomorrow I will forget that because it’s the final. It’s very important to play a final against Federer for me. I will play a great match.



Q: What are your memories of the match in Monte Carlo?

A: An incredible match. I am thinking all days about this match. It was incredible to win against him. I don’t realize it today. But tomorrow I have to play another match against him. But I’m not the favourite. So, I will play a great match and I’m happy to be in the finals. It’s a great result for me.



Q: Does it help that you have had 3 matches that have gone reasonably quickly?

A: Yes, it was quick, but I played great tennis. It’s incredible to win three matches like this. I have energy for tomorrow I think.



Q: Because that’s going to be important for the best of five.

A: Yes it’s really important. It’s difficult for me to play five sets. But it will be great. I will have a lot experience after this match.



Q: How many 5 set matches have you played?

A: One but it was on grass court not on clay. I think it’s difficult for me.



Q: Do you like this court because it’s usually regarded as very slow?

A: Yes, it’s slow. But I like this court because it’s slow, I can play good tennis on this court. When I play good, I can play on every court I think.



Q: The weather forecast suggests that it might be cooler tomorrow, maybe a little rain which will make it even slower. Will that help you?

A: Yes, I think because if it’s slow it will be good for me. I think Federer doesn’t like slow courts. I don’t know. I prefer to play him on a slow court.



Q: Is clay your best surface?

A: No, I don’t know because I can play on hard court, grass. I don’t know.

voici un article sur Richard d'un journal suisse-francais:

Tennis: A une semaine de Roland-Garros, la métamorphose de Richard Gasquet

PARIS (ATP) - Le jeune Français Richard Gasquet, en accédant lundi à la 32e place au classement ATP de tennis alors qu'il n'était encore que 152e début avril, va aborder Roland-Garros dans une semaine avec le statut tout frais de trouble-fête potentiel.
AFP AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE.
11:21 16.05.05

Finaliste dimanche du Masters Series de Hambourg (Allemagne) face au N.1 mondial, le Suisse Roger Federer, qu'il avait battu un mois auparavant en quarts de finale à Monte-Carlo, mais qui cette fois-ci a laissé parler son rang, Gasquet est en passe de détrôner Sébastien Grosjean de son statut de premier Français.

Grosjean, 24e mondial, a passé deux tours à Hambourg, pendant que son jeune compatriote (19 ans le 18 juin), issu des qualifications, se débarrassait tranquillement de ses adversaires pour atteindre la finale.

"Lors de ma semaine à Hambourg, j'ai gagné beaucoup de confiance pour Roland-Garros" où il est désormais assuré d'être tête de série, a d'ailleurs confié Gasquet après la finale dimanche.

Ancien N.1 mondial juniors (en 2002) comme cinq autres Français avant lui (Thierry Tulasne, Guy Forget, Sébastien Grosjean, Arnaud Di Pasquale et Gaël Monfils), il a en effet réalisé dans le nord de l'Allemagne le meilleur résultat de sa jeune carrière.

Elle lui a permis de faire un nouveau bond au classement mondial, après celui enregistré (40 places de gagnées) après son parcours monégasque mi-avril, et d'éviter de passer désormais par les qualifications.

Professionnel depuis 2002, son palmarès comporte dorénavant, outre sa place de finaliste à Hambourg, une première pour lui dans un Masters Series, une place de demi-finaliste à Monte-Carlo, de finaliste à Metz (France) en 2004 et sept victoires en challenger (2e division de l'ATP), dont Naples et Barletta sur la terre battue italienne cette saison.

Le Biterrois, un peu "tendre" lors de ses deux premières années chez les professionnels, durant lesquelles il avait alternativement déçu et émerveillé ses supporteurs, a mûri, comme il le dit lui-même.

"Il y a un an je n'aurais peut-être pas remporté ce match. Mais j'ai gagné en expérience et en maturité. J'ai beaucoup mûri. Et désormais, je me bagarre", avait-il déclaré peu après sa victoire sur le Russe Nikolay Davydenko (N.10), en huitièmes de finale à Monte-Carlo.

Son éclosion tant attendue constitue pour le tennis national un immense soulagement après un océan de désillusions.

D'autant plus que chez les dames, Amélie Mauresmo, "coachée mentalement" par Yannick Noah, a remporté dimanche le Masters Series de Rome et se présente elle aussi pleine de sérénité avant le rendez-vous parisien.

La terre battue, sur laquelle Gasquet réalise ses meilleures performances, et où seuls Federer, l'Espagnol Rafael Nadal et l'Américain Andre Agassi l'ont battu cette saison en 29 rencontres, devrait lui permettre de remporter bientôt son premier titre sur le circuit.

Même si pour cela Roland-Garros 2005 viendra sans doute encore un peu trop tôt.

Le classement ATP au 16 mai:
1. Roger Federer (SUI) 6605 pts
2. Lleyton Hewitt (AUS) 3935
3. Andy Roddick (USA) 3590
4. Marat Safin (RUS) 3065
5. Rafael Nadal (ESP) 2600
6. Gaston Gaudio (ARG) 2440
7. Andre Agassi (USA) 2275
8. Tim Henman (GBR) 2195 (+1)
9. Guillermo Coria (ARG) 2040 (-1)
10. Guillermo Canas (ARG) 1745
11. David Nalbandian (ARG) 1685
12. Joachim Johansson (SUE) 1625
13. Nikolay Davydenko (RUS) 1505 (+7)
14. Ivan Ljubicic (CRO) 1465 (-1)
15. Carlos Moya (ESP) 1430 (-1)
16. Tommy Robredo (ESP) 1415
17. Radek Stepanek (TCH) 1415 (-2)
18. Dominik Hrbaty (SVQ) 1371
19. Mario Ancic (CRO) 1315 (+2)
20. Thomas Johansson (SUE) 1313 (-1)
...
24. Sébastien Grosjean (FRA) 1200 (+3)
32. Richard Gasquet (FRA) 1050 (+24)
49. Cyril Saulnier (FRA) 763
51. Fabrice Santoro (FRA) 757 (-1)
52. Mickäel Llodra (FRA) 756 (-1)
67. Paul-Henri Mathieu (FRA) 574 (-1)
80. Gaël Monfils (FRA) 496 (+1)

Ohh non pas L'Equipe non plus !!!!!!!!!!!!
Si meme eux s'y mettent !! On sait ce que ça donne chaque année avec Mauresmo, eh ben, sans vouloir être pessimiste, ça pourrait tres bien arriver à Richard. Il reste fragile et peut très bien tomber au 1er tour alors de grâce laissons-le tranquille et arrêtons de tirer des plans sur la comette !
