Richard Gasquet had to retire from his match against Jurgen Melzer in Portschach. Gasquet was trailing 6-0 1-1, when he decided to call it quits.
At the end of the first set, Richard had treatment on his right hand.
Coach, Eric Deblicker said,
"It's a little pain in the elbow he probably sustained because of the number of matches he has played here,"
"I do not think it casts a doubt on his participation at the French Open."
Richard's next tournament is the French Open.
