Gasquet’s entire Grand Slam from Nadal and Djokovic’s plans


Richard Gasquet he is 37 years old, he is fifteen days older than Rafael Nadal, where he was involved in a rivalry in the basic categories that ended against him. Over time, the enormous expectations that France placed on the ‘little Mozart’ were not fulfilled.

The disappointment is underlined by the comparison with Rafael Nadalwhich far exceeded all that the most optimistic of his followers had imagined.

Both are facing the final stages of their careers. The Frenchman indicated at Roland Garros that, normally, his retirement will take place in the 2024 edition of the Parisian tournament. The Spaniard is taking care of his physical preparation at his academy in Manacor, after hip surgery, following steps that will allow him to return to competition next year, which is predictably the last. There is only a complete return if he feels in a position to fight the best for the titles.

Rafael Nadal He became the champion of the Australian Open and Roland Garros 2022, bringing his number of Grand Slam titles to twenty-two. A record passed this course Novak Djokovicwho is 23rd and fighting for 24th at the US Open.

One of the most ambitious goals of the manacorí and the Balkans is to complete a Grand Slam at the same time: win the four ‘big’ tournaments in the same year. Something only Americans have done in men’s tennis Don Budge and the Australian Rod Laver, last century and when three of those events were held on grass. Paris is the exception.

It has not entered the plans of Nadal and Djokovicnot even at his professional debut, completing the Grand Slam signed by Richard Gasquet after losing to the Hungarians Fabian Maroszan -the executioner of Carlos Alcaraz in Rome- by 6-3, 6-1, 6-7 (5), 6-7 (1) and 6-2.

The Frenchman got a full Grand Slam, but negative. Zero wins, four losses. The difference in New York is the three more matches against the compatriots: Ugo Humbert, Arthur Rinderknech and Corentin Moutetsuccessively in Australia, Roland Garros and Wimbledon.

It’s five consecutive losses for Gasquet, who enters the US Open 2022 against his friend Rafael Nadal, in the third round. In the second he achieved what remains his last Grand Slam joy, at the expense of the Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic. The current one is his worst record since it began, when he strung together six consecutive eliminations, though not 4 for 4 in the same campaign.

layer, 55 in the world, he played his 19th US Open, where his executioner Maroszan made his debut. Richard was a tournament semifinalist in 2013, as well as Wimbledon in 2007 and 2015.
