Beaten but not defeated. Richard Gasquet came very close to an exploit and a comeback in the electric atmosphere of Bercy. “I lead 6-3 in the tie-break, I saw myself as the winner. I managed to come back by making huge points. I find myself at 6-5 very very quickly and there I make the double. With stress anything can happen. It’s tennis, it’s not the first time, there was a huge audience, it was fabulous.” As a magnificent loser, the Biterrois thrilled the Parisian public: “It’s only at Roland-Garros and Bercy that you have atmospheres like that.” Winner in Aukland at the start of the season Gasquet is not yet talking about retirement: “I still finish in the top 100 in the world, I hope to achieve it again next year, that’s the goal. I still feel capable of it. As long as this is the case, we must continue. I'm not young anymore, I'm in my 38th year which is still huge, but I don't know when I'm going to stop. Obviously it will get closer next year. I’ll see at the start of the season how it’s going to go.”
