MIAMI (AFP) Frenchman Richard Gasquets ATP slump deepened on Wednesday with a 7-6 (7/2), 1-6, 6-4 loss to Belgian Olivier Rochus in the first round of the Miami Masters hardcourt tournament. Since reaching the final of his season opener at Sydney against Marcos Baghdatis, 74th-ranked Gasquet has done little of note, losing six of seven matches with his only victory coming against Carlos Moya, who was returning from injury, in Acapulco. Gasquet went down at Miami despite 13 aces in a contest lasting little more than two hours. The Frenchman committed five double-faults and was broken twice by his 59th-ranked foe. It was in Miami a year ago when Gasquet tested positive for cocaine, a result that took months to clear up after a ban and a final ruling in his favour last December from the Court for Arbitration of Sport in Switzerland. The positive test came after a nightclub visit where he said he kissed a girl who had ingested the illegal substance. His lawyers successfully argued that the nightclub kisses had caused the positive test. Of course I need to get more confidence, Gasquet said. This is a special place for me and I just need time to come to terms with everything that has happened. Im not playing badly. Already this is better than last year for me since I had to pull out last year with the shoulder injury.
