At 30-years-old, Richard Gasquet still has the desire to taste success on the biggest stages and events despite coming close on a number of occasions.
Yet to win a Masters or Grand Slam title
The French tennis player has yet to lift a Masters or Grand Slam title in his career, going on to win 14 ATP 250 event tournaments. But he has been a two-time Wimbledon semifinalist in 2007 and 2015, as well as reaching the US Open semifinal three years ago in 2013.
Speaking to Le10Sport, Gasquet said, ''Obviously, I still have ambitions for the big tournaments, for Grand Slams, for the Davis Cup,''
Gasquet, before, had never made it past the fourth round at Roland Garros but did so this year beating the likes of Kei Nishikori and Nick Kyrgios to reach his best run and make the quarterfinals, losing to runner-up Andy Murray in four sets.
''Roland Garros is obviously the most important (tournament) to me and I'm very happy to have reached the quarter-finals. The idea is to try to do better,'' confessed the 30-year-old.
Since his debut in 2002, Gasquet has won 14 ATP World Tour titles, and it remains to be seen if he can add a major title to his ever growing collection after hiring Thierry Champion as his coach for the upcoming 2017 season.
