Richard Gasquet has once again come out and publicly denied the fact that he is not homosexual.
Some time back, there had been rumours of Gasquet being homosexual.
He was snapped in an intimate position with one of his trainers and that had led to people making perceptions about him.

I would probably been a little more attacking to her and disturb her rhythm, but, I would not try to match her in terms of power. I would mix my game, use different angles and depends on slices.”
“With Serena, what’s important is that you remain quick and hurry her up a little bit. I have seen in the past whenever she has come up against players who are quicker than some of the others, she has had difficulties.” Read more »
