Richard Gasquet, beaten (6-3, 7-5) in the first round of the ATP 250 in Lyon by Mikael Ymer, Monday: “It was hot, it was different from last week (where he won against the Swede at the Bordeaux Challenger, 7-6 6-3), it bounced more, he moved better than me, he made few mistakes… I didn’t serve well, I wasn’t very fresh. When it’s like that on earth, it’s difficult, it’s the surface that starts to become the hardest for me. The matches on clay have been tough for me this season, it’s been more complicated than on hard, it takes a lot of energy. The gr will be much better.
I’m going to rest, I have two or three pains on the right, on the left. And then prepare myself as well as possible for Paris (Roland-Garros, which starts on Sunday) and wait for the draw. When you’re not seeded, anything is possible. »
