“I’m Not Gay,” Says Unasked Gasquet

French Tennis player Richard Gasquet recently took some unprompted time to assert his oft-questioned heterosexuality. From an interview after he lost Tennis Masters Cup in China:

Q. Now your matches are finished. Do you still have any plan to go around the city maybe with your uncle or your girlfriend?

RICHARD GASQUET: My uncle? No. My girlfriend, no. I have no girlfriend, so I will try to find one, one Chinese girl. Why not? Why not? I lost 6-1, 6-1. It will be very hard for me tonight. I’m ready to lose, you know.

Q. Who is the girl watching your match with your uncle?

RICHARD GASQUET: Not my girl. I don’t know. Not my girl, for sure. No, no, no, I have just friends. Men friends, but I’m not gay.

Someone needs to get this boy a publicist, because he clearly doesn’t know how to work the press. Nor, it seems, does he have much faith in his sexuality.
