Richard Gasquet Is Eager To Correct Your Misconceptions

You might remember tennis player Richard Gasquet's loud proclamations that he does not like doing it with dudes. Fair enough. But it now appears Mr. Gasquet is in serious danger of protesting too much.

In an interview last month, Gasquet was asked some questions that had absolutely nothing to do with him being gay. Not that it didn't inspired him to defend himself anyway.

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.

So, you know, if you're up for a Richard Gasquet denial of gaydom, just walk up to him on the street and say hi. He'll be happy to oblige.
