Drawing: Richard Gasquet

Richard Gasquet

It’s been a good year for Richard Gasquet. France’s top tennis player is currently number 9 in the world rankings with one of his highlights, reaching the semi-finals at this year’s Wimbledon Championships. While known as an all-court player with some crafty drop shots, it is his single-handed backhand that is his signature shot.

Graceful, efficient and effective, it is considered one of the best ever. While not in the main draw at this week’s ATP World Tour Finals at the O2 in London, Richard is the first alternate and is at the event in case one of the top 8 are injured. For a few seconds the friendly Frenchman used his classy right hand to write a signature shot on my sketch.
