The Virtuoso

Richard Gasquet

With 15 ATP titles and a career-high ranking of No. 7, Richard Gasquet is known as one of tennis’ remarkable talents, and that, since early on in his career. Possessing a phenomenal feel and control with the ball, he seems to be one with his racket, just like Mozart is one with his instrument. Over the years, Richard has been redefining excellence with his outstanding one-handed backhand. At 33 years old, he is the most experienced players on the UTS field. But in a format that has nothing to do with regular tennis, will experience really matter?
