Richard Gasquet summed up his shock appearance in the Wimbledon semi-finals alongside Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Andy Murray by admitting: “I’m the worst”.
The 29-year-old Frenchman reached his second All England Club semi-final — eight years after his first — with a 6-4, 4-6, 3-6, 6-4, 11-9 victory over fourth seed Stan Wawrinka on Wednesday.
While he was spending three hours on court, defending champion Djokovic, who is his semifinal opponent on Friday (today), seven-time winner Federer and 2013 champion Murray hardly broke sweat as they took their expected places in Friday’s last-four line-up.
“I’m proud because there are big players in the semis. But I’m the worst when you see Federer, Djokovic and Murray and me,” said Gasquet.
