Richard Gasquet admits himself to be the worst semifinalist
Richard Gasquet has reached the semi-finals at the Wimbledon this time. The last and only time he reached the semi-finals was eight years before.

He will be alongside Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Andy Murray in the semi finals. He said, "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."

The 29-year-old Frenchman lost to Federer in the 2007 semi-finals at Wimbledon. While he is in his second Wimbledon semi-final, Federer is in his 10th, Djokovic is in his seventh while Murray has made the last-four for the sixth time.

 If we look at the record of Gasquet till now at Wimbledon, he has lost 15 of his 16 matches against top 10 players. He has also struggled with back injury recently, so his prospects at Wimbledon were not very promising, but he is doing an amazing job over the last nine days.

Looking at his recent performance, Djokovic (who is also one of the finalist) commented, "Well, it's a great effort from Richard to win against Stan, who is in a terrific form, and five sets. I think the biggest difference with Richard now, maybe comparing to the last couple years, is his fitness. I think he improved a lot. I heard he worked hard to get himself really fit and ready to go the distance and it's paying off. He always had a touch, he always had the talent. He loves playing on grass. I expect him to come out on the court in two days wanting to win."
