French Wildcards Announced!!

France's junior world number one Richard Gasquet has been invited to make his debut in the men's competition at the Australian Open next month.

The youngster from Beziers made an impact on the senior tour last year when, as a 15-year-old, he beat Argentinian Franco Squillari to reach the second round of the Monte Carlo Masters Series event.

The invitation comes about due to a reciprocal agreement between the Australian and French federations whereby two players will receive wild cards into their respective Grand Slams.

Gasquet, now aged 16, was put forward by the French Tennis Federation as their choice for the men's tournament, with 21-year-old Camille Pin their choice to contest the women's event.

surprised they didn't go with Stephanie based on her recent form and the fact she wasn't on the entry list

anyway Camille is also deserving, so congrats to her

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

I saw Richard play Marat Safin last year...in Monte Carlo, maybe [it was on TV]. He has a very good game. He has a great future...I hope he goes far
