Richard is through to the semifinals of the Medibank International in Sydney. He defeated Paul-Henri Mathieu 6-4, 6-7(1), 6-0.
In the semifinals he will face Carlos Moya.
Richard hit 8 aces and had a solid 62% first serve.
Gasquet and Moya have met once before in 2004 at Acapulco. Moya won there in three sets, but tomorrow is 3 years on and a different surface, so most likely will be a different story!
The match will be not before 3.00pm on Friday. The other semifinal is between Blake and Melzer.
