Angry Gasquet out of Nottingham
Richard Gasquet
Gasquet had won his previous 12 matches in Nottingham
Reigning champion Richard Gasquet crashed out of the Nottingham Open after his quarter-final with Arnaud Clement was switched indoors.

Gasquet lost 6-4 6-3 to his French compatriot after persistant rain left the outdoor grass courts unplayable.

Gasquet said: "It's really bad for me because I wanted to play on the grass.

"It's not the same conditions - it's like another tournament and it was too bad to play on this court. I'm used to playing on Centre Court."

Clement went on to beat fourth seed Jonas Bjorkman 6-2 6-4 in the semi-final and will now face Ivo Karlovic in the final.

Karlovic had reached the semi-finals on Thursday with a win over Juan Martin del Potro.

It meant the 6ft 10in Croatian was the only player who did not have to play two matches on Friday and it may have given him the edge against Russian second seed Dmitry Tursunov.

Karlovic came through 7-5 6-4.
