Gasquet looks to revive career, dumps coach Deblicker

You'd have to be deaf, dumb, and blind not to see this one coming: Richard Gasquet, who I've been none-too-kind towards for his failings this season, has decided to split with his coach since 2004, Eric Deblicker. The Frenchman will now be coached Guillaume Peyre from Team Lagardere, his management company.

The world no. 9 had this to say about his former coach:

Eric remains my friend and the one who helped me into the top 10.
Well this is a great first step in reviving his career and fulfilling his great potential - but I'm not holding my breath just yet.

  1. Yeah this season has been a disaster for him so far. Hopefully he can get it together.

  2. we'll see - he's my mr. mauresmo

  3. At least he's making the effort to get things in order. Maybe this is the push he will need to straighten out his head. Let's hope so - it's such wasted talent otherwise.

  4. smart guy, Gasquet sans Racquet.

    He's young, he's very successful, he must have worked like mad to reach and keep a top 10 ranking...let him enjoy a petit-vacance.

  5. I think every player has there down moments. Look at Federer recently, Andy Roddick, Marat Safin, Sharapova last year, ect...
