Richard Gasquet (French pronunciation: [ʁiʃaʁ ɡasˈkɛ]) (born 18 June 1986) is a French professional tennis player. He won the mixed doubles Grand Slam title at the 2004 French Open, partnering with Tatiana Golovin. His career-high singles ranking is World No. 7. His best achievements in tennis are reaching the semi-finals of Wimbledon in 2007 and later that year qualifying for the Tennis Masters Cup. Gasquet is best known for his long winding groundstrokes and his one-handed backhand.
Early years 
Richard Gasquet was born in Béziers in the Languedoc-Roussillon region. He is the only child in the family. He began playing tennis at the age of 4 under the guidance of his father, Francis, who ran a tennis club, the TC Sérignan, along with his mother Maryse. He appeared on the cover of French Tennis Magazine aged only 9, and was touted as an extremely promising prospect even at such an early age. He was coached by his father during his junior career, and by Tarik Benhabiles for a short period. Since turning professional he has been coached by Eric Deblicker and Guillame Peyre. In February 2010, he hired coach Gabriel Markus, who has worked with Marat Safin and David Nalbandian in the past.
As a junior Gasquet posted a 44–7 singles record and reached as high as No. 1 in the world in September 2002.
Junior Slam results:
He made his debut on the ATP tour in April 2002, at the Tennis Masters Series tournament at Monte Carlo where he received a wildcard into qualifying and became the youngest player ever to qualify for a Tennis Masters event. At the age of 15 years, 10 months, he defeated Argentina's Franco Squillari in the first round of that tournament to become the youngest player to win a tour-level main draw match since Tommy Ho at Rye Brook in 1988.
Gasquet made his Grand Slam tournament debut at the 2002 French Open at the age of 15 years, 11 months, nine days. He was the second-youngest player ever to compete in the main draw there. Despite his lack of experience, he managed to take a set off the eventual champion Albert Costa in the first round. Gasquet finished 2002 as the No. 1 junior in the world and was named World Junior Champion, having won the junior titles at the French Open and the US Open. He was also the youngest player to finish in year-end ATP top 200.
Gasquet finished 2003 as the youngest player to finish a year inside the ATP top 100. In 2004, he reached his first ATP tournament final at Metz, but lost to fellow countryman Jérôme Haehnel 7–6, 6–4. He also won the mixed doubles trophy at the French Open that year, partnering Tatiana Golovin.

Gasquet missed the first seven weeks of the 2005 season because of chickenpox. Upon his recovery he won back to back challenger titles in March. In April, riding the momentum of a 10 match winning streak, Gasquet reached the semifinals of the Masters Series tournament at Monte Carlo, handing world number one Roger Federer a surprise 7–6, 2–6, 7–6 defeat in the quarterfinal. He saved 3 match points before closing it out in a 10–8 tiebreak. As a result, he became the youngest French player ever to defeat a world number one. However, the eventual champion Rafael Nadal defeated him in the semifinals.
Fresh off of his win over world No. 1 Federer and having just beaten Paradorn Srichaphan in straight sets, the rising teen disappointingly lost against Andre Agassi at Rome's Masters tennis tournament. A month later, he reached the final of the Hamburg Masters, where, this time, he was defeated by Roger Federer in 3 sets.
In May, he won his first Grand Slam singles match at Roland Garros. On 18 June, his 19th birthday, he won his first ATP title, defeating Max Mirnyi in the final of the grass court tournament at Nottingham, England. He then made his Davis Cup debut against Russia in July where he won his first rubber against Igor Andreev but lost his second against Nikolay Davydenko.
Gasquet had to miss the last 2 months of the season because of an elbow injury. He finished the year as French number 1 for the first time.
In 2006, Gasquet had a slow start after a first round defeat to Tommy Haas at the Australian Open. He later avenged this defeat in the Davis Cup 1st round tie against Germany where he beat Haas in 5 sets. However he lost both his singles rubbers in the quarter-final tie versus Russia, and suffered an abdominal injury in that tie which left him out of action for a month. Having struggled to find any form after his comeback during the clay season, Gasquet went out in the 2nd round of the French Open to David Nalbandian.
Following on from a disappointing opening half to his season, in the space of 3 weeks he successfully defended his title at Nottingham, lost in a first round meeting with Roger Federer at Wimbledon, and won his 2nd title of the year, on clay, in Gstaad. Gasquet's form continued to improve heading towards the US Open, as he reached the final of the Masters Seriers event in Toronto, again being halted by Federer, in 3 sets. He reached the fourth round of the US Open for the 2nd year in a row where he lost to Lleyton Hewitt in 5 sets.
In October he won his 3rd title of the year, this time on indoor carpet, in Lyon, completing his achievement of reaching finals on all four surfaces during the year. His season ended when he withdrew in the third round of the Paris Masters owing to illness. He ended the year as French number 1 for the second straight year.
Gasquet's 2007 started with a quarterfinal in Adelaide, followed by a semifinal in Sydney. He went on to reach the fourth round of the 2007 Australian Open, losing to Tommy Robredo in 4 sets. At the Monte Carlo Masters Series tournament, he notched up his first win over a top 10 opponent of the year, winning his 3rd round match over Ivan Ljubičić, ranked 8 at the time. However he then lost his quarter-final to twice former Monte Carlo champion Juan Carlos Ferrero. Gasquet reached his first final of the season two weeks later, at Estoril, but the up-and-coming Serbian player Novak Djokovic got the better of him in 3 sets.
He reached the doubles final of the 2007 Monte Carlo Masters with Julien Benneteau, where the French team lost to Bob and Mike Bryan. Despite losing in round 2 of the 2007 French Open to Kristof Vliegen, he rose two spots to a career high #11.
Gasquet then made his first Grand Slam semi-final at Wimbledon. He beat fellow Frenchmen Nicolas Mahut and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on his way to a quarter-final showdown with Andy Roddick. In one of the great Wimbledon quarter-finals, Gasquet recovered from a sluggish start and a deficit of two sets and a break in the third, to upset the two-time finalist by a scoreline of 4–6, 4–6, 7–6, 7–6, 8–6. Gasquet managed to score an amazing 93 winners, many of which were with his almost 'trademark' backhand down the line. He lost in the semi-finals to Roger Federer (who beat him in the first round of the same event the previous year). He made his top-10 debut at #7 as a result.
The following week in Gstaad, as defending champion, he defeated Rubén Ramírez Hidalgo and avenged his Roland Garros loss to Kristof Vliegen, but lost in the quarter-finals to Igor Andreev. He bowed out at the 2007 US Open because of a virus. Gasquet returned to action in Mumbai, India winning his 5th career ATP title beating Olivier Rochus in the final. He followed this up by reaching the final of the Tokyo ATP tournament, losing to David Ferrer in straight sets.
He then took a few weeks break and then went to play in 2007 Grand Prix de Tennis de Lyon where he was defending champion. He lost to fellow Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (whom he beat at Wimbledon) in the 3rd round in straight sets.
At the 2007 Paris Masters, Gasquet defeated Tsonga after his loss at Lyon in the second round and sixth seed James Blake in the third round. He beat Andy Murray in the quarter-finals to reach the semifinals, where he was stopped by David Nalbandian in straight sets. With his performance in Paris, Gasquet qualified for the Tennis Masters Cup, clinching 8th place.
At the Tennis Masters Cup, Gasquet was defeated by Rafael Nadal in his first round-robin match. He then defeated Novak Djokovic, but lost to David Ferrer. Gasquet failed to qualify for the semi-finals, finishing in third place in his group.
Gasquet started out the year as the top seed of the Sydney Medibank International but made an early second round exit to eventual champion Dmitry Tursunov. Gasquet played with compatriot Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the doubles final of the Sydney Medibank International, scoring a major upset over world number one duo Bob and Mike Bryan 4–6, 6–4, 11–9. The French combination came back from two match points down to win the championship and deny the Bryan brothers ever winning the tournament.
At his next two tournaments, the Open 13 at Marseille, France, and the Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships, Gasquet suffered second round defeats to Robin Söderling and Igor Andreev. At the ATP Masters Series tournament in Indian Wells, California, Gasquet lost in straight sets in the fourth round to James Blake.
At the ATP Masters Series tournament in Key Biscayne, Florida, he lost his opening round match to Dmitry Tursunov. And at the USA vs France World Group Quarterfinal Davis Cup match, Gasquet lost in three sets to American James Blake in his opening round match. Then in a controversial move, he later told French Davis Cup Captain, Guy Forget that he was opting out of his key match against Andy Roddick in their reverse singles matchup.
After winning his first round match at the Monte Carlo Masters tournament, Gasquet's poor form continued as he lost his second round match to Sam Querrey and then both of his opening round matches at the ATP Masters Series events in Rome and Hamburg to Luis Horna and to Andreas Seppi respectively.
With a string of disappointing results behind him, Gasquet admitted to feeling burned out, in dire need of a concerted rest from tennis and admitted a reluctance to play the French Open, the year's second Grand Slam. However he changed coaches immediately ahead of the French Open, and then later decided to pull out of his first round match against Florent Serra, (France) citing a left knee injury problem.
Gasquet, later announced his decision to not take part in the upcoming Summer Olympic games in Beijing, preferring instead to prepare for the US Open which began at the end of the summer hardcourt season in August. He joined fellow world top 10 player Andy Roddick, American Mardy Fish and former top 10 player Tommy Haas of Germany, a silver medalist in 2000 at the Sydney Olympic Games, who all opted out of that year's Olympic Games.
At the new tennis rankings posted on 9 June 2008, Gasquet fell one place from world number 9 to world number 10 in the world.
Gasquet began the grass court season at the The Artois Championships at Queen's Club, London where he defeated Mario Ančić of Croatia in the second round, and Italian Simone Bolelli in the third round. However in his quarterfinal match he fell to David Nalbandian of Argentina. This was Gasquet's first quarterfinal appearance in a tournament this year.
At the Wimbledon Championships, Gasquet was the eight seed and defeated American Mardy Fish in the first round. In his next two matches he defeated a pair of his French compatriots, Sébastien Grosjean and Gilles Simon. He went out to Britain's Andy Murray in the fourth round 5–7, 3–6, 7–6, 6–2, 6–4 despite serving for the match at 5–4 in the third.
At the new tennis rankings posted on Monday, 7 July 2008, Gasquet fell five places from world number 10 to world number 15, making it the first time in nine months since his ranking fell outside the top 10, and the lowest he had been ranked since April '07.
At the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart, Germany, Gasquet was the second seed and reached his first ATP tour semifinal and final of the year after defeating Spaniard Albert Montañés in the quarterfinals and sixth-seeded Argentine Agustín Calleri in the semifinals . Favourite to win the tournament, Gasquet suffered a surprise defeat in the finals to Argentine teenager Juan Martín del Potro in straight sets.

On 9 May 2009, French sports daily L'Équipe reported that he had tested positive for cocaine in March 2009, following his withdrawal from a tournament in Miami.  On 5 June 2009, in an interview with the same newspaper, Richard Gasquet denies having taken cocaine, notably quoting the fact that the amount found accounts for 1/10 of a rail line.  Gasquet was provisionally suspended, but was later cleared as a result of his explanation that he had inadvertently consumed the drug after kissing a woman who had consumed it at a party.  As of 16 July 2009, he is thus able to compete again. Gasquet warmly praised Rafael Nadal for his support during the period of his ban: "Rafa supported me more than anyone in the last few months and if he ever needs me to help him, I will do what I can. I'll never forget what he's done for me. Now I just want to get out and play."
After months of being sidelined, Gasquet made his return to the tour at the Pilot Pen championship in New Haven to qualify for the main draw, but lost in the second round of qualifying.
Playing in his first Grand Slam since January, Gasquet faced Rafael Nadal in the first round of the US Open, but lost in straight sets. Despite the obvious signs of rustiness, Gasquet played well, considering his three month absence but was unable to overcome Nadal.
He played in his next tournament at the Open de Moselle in Metz. He made a solid run, beating Michael Berrer, Christophe Rochus, and Philipp Petzschner to reach his first ATP semifinals since January. Unfortunately, his run ended at the hands of compatriot and eventual champion of the tournament, Gaël Monfils.
He also made a quarterfinal run in the Kuala Lumpur Open 250 tournament in Malaysia, losing to Fernando Verdasco, (despite holding a 3–0 lead in the first set). His season came to a conclusion after this tournament.

Richard Gasquet started his 2013 season in scintillating fashion capturing the Qatar Exxon Mobil Open. Gasquet displayed fine form in Doha and showed a resolve that many have thought to be lacking in the Frenchman. Being down a set and a break in the final against Nikolay Davydenko, Gasquet bared down instead of playing the role of a man resigned to defeat, pulling off an improbable victory.
Gasquet is now 5–0 on the season and has taken the precautionary route heading into the Australian Open by withdrawing from Sydney. Gasquet has stated that he wants to be better prepared for the Grand Slam tournaments and feels that Doha was more than adequate preparation having played five matches within the past week. Gasquet lost to fellow countryman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the 4th Round of the Australian Open in 4 sets.
Gasquet won his second title of the year defeating fellow Frenchman Benoît Paire in the Open Sud de France final. He has been on quite a roll to start the season as his match record stands at 14–1.
Playing style 
||This section of a biographical article needs additional citations for verification. (March 2009)|
Gasquet is noted for his powerful and precise single-handed backhand, his flair and shot-making ability and is also known for his speed around the court. He is an all-court player. Gasquet's single-handed backhand features a high take back, utilising gravity, coils up (very low to the ground), and slowly unwinds, unleashing one of the best backhands on the ATP tour. However, his forehand can be considered a weaker shot. He is capable of hitting big winners with his forehand, but in general, his rally forehand lacks consistent depth. While he is capable of hitting huge winners, Gasquet is criticised for being too defensive, standing deep in the court and hitting the ball with looping top spin or slice with very little pace.
Gasquet has earned much praise for his "natural ability". One of the accolades he has received is recognition of his ability to play all-round complete tennis. During a Davis cup match against Marat Safin, British TV presenter Barry Cowan described him as "naturally more talented than Federer".
Many, including Peter Fleming, have sung similar praises of the young Frenchman's talent.
Gasquet uses the IG Extreme Pro with Tourna Grip and 2009 Team series bag from Head. His racquet is strung with Luxilon Big Banger Original 16 String. He wears clothing by Lacoste. His shoe of choice is Asics. He also has Lagardère Tags on his sleeves.
