For me, the biggest unanswered question from today is why the stadium was half-full (half-empty?) for a top 20 French player playing in the last 16 of the French Open. I know they tend to saunter in slowly around lunchtime, but this was the height of the evening schedule.
You used to have to be a registered tennis player to watch at Roland Garros. There was never an empty seat in the house.
They might have 11 players in the top 100, but something's sadly amiss with French tennis.
Seemingly, Gasquet is the least popular of the French players with the French public. He was made much of when he was a junior - 'They called me a genius at 11,' said Gasquet - and I suppose they feel he hasn't lived up to his hype. When you add to that his ban for illegal substances - although he was ultimately cleared - the French crowd are very unforgiving!
