Richard Gasquet not done yet: 'I still have ambitions for the big tournaments'

Richard Gasquet still has a desire to taste success at the bigger events. The French tennis player has yet to win a Grand Slam or a Masters 1000 title. He was twice Wimbledon semi-finalist (2007 and 2015) and ended losing in the US Open last-four stage three years ago in 2013.

The world number 18 was close to winning the Davis Cup two years ago in 2014, but didn't do so as Switzerland got better off France in the final of the competition. ''Obviously, I still have ambitions for the big tournaments, for Grand Slams, for the Davis Cup,'' said Gasquet to 20 Minutes, reveals Le10sport.

Gasquet's career best result at the French Open was the quarter-final result achieved in the 2016 season. ''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. Overall, Gasquet has 14 ATP singles titles in his collection. It remains to be seen if he can add a Grand Slam title to his collection in the 2017 season.
