After the Open de Tennis exhibition in Caen, where on Tuesday he played against the Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut, the world no. 18 Richard Gasquet spoke to Liberté Bonhomme analyzing how his 2016 season went and revealed his goals for 2017.
The French player said he didn't have any regret about 2016. 'I leaft the top-10, I could not play Rio Olympics and the Davis Cup quarter-finals due to injuries. But it's doable. I won two titles (Two ATP 250: Montpellier and Antwerp), I reached Roland Garros quarter-finals and Wimbledon fourth round.' About his goals for 2017, he said that he wanted to return back into the top-10.
'My priority is to stay injury-free in order to be more consistent and be ready in the Grand Slams. I want to do better.' Gasquet will start his 2017 season at the Hopman Cup, where he will play alongside Kristina Mladenovic.
