French tennis player Richard Gasquet commented on reaching the semi-finals of the tournament in Cincinnati.
The athlete returned to court in May – after an operation on his groin. “I know how hard it was to return to Tours. I know that I moved at the beginning of the year. So I just wanted to enjoy and fight. Of course, it’s hard to come back after six months outside games, but I’m here. I’m in the semifinals.
Bautista-Agut is a great player. He spends a wonderful season, will enter the Top 10. He is not mistaken, he plays fast, runs well, and there are no weaknesses in his game. He beats to the end. Physically, he is very well prepared, so the matches with him are always difficult.
You need to show the best game to defeat such an opponent. With Goffin it will be hard. He is an excellent tennis player, he plays very fast. I need to recover to be ready, because he is not mistaken. It will be hard. This is the semifinal. But I have nothing to lose, and I will give everything in full, “ATP press service quotes Richard.
