Richard Gasquet may have a French Open title to his name but even the home crowd would be surprised to see the Frenchman go far at Roland Garros this year.
Gasquet claimed the mixed doubles title en route to a career-high seventh spot in the world rankings in 2004, but has failed to go further than the third round in the singles draw in Paris.
Having initially struggled to live up to expectations, the 24-year-old has risen to 16 in the rankings after dropping down as low as 52nd in 2009.
The flamboyant Frenchman arrives at the second major of the year on the back of an impressive hard-court campaign which saw him reach the semi-finals at Indian Wells.
His clay form indicates the capability of at least equalling his furthest progress in the French Open, having made the semis in Rome and third round at Monte Carlo.
Will require a favourable draw to go deep on the slow red dirt in Paris.
