Re: 2009 Fall tournaments

Me neither, but I just think he grew up on clay and has to adjust to other surfaces, especially the really fast ones.

Re: 2009 Fall tournaments

actually I was quite surprised that he could get back to 5-5 in crucial situation, I thought he has improved his mental ability, but then lost his serve immediately. Anyway, have a good rest, and make better performance next year

Re: 2009 Fall tournaments

He will probably get the WC for the Masters France (17.-20.12).

Re: 2009 Fall tournaments

It was predictable even if he plays poorly in the indoors french tournaments this year. He's the local players and all the musketeers have direct entry. He will play some matches for Toulouse ? because since the start of the interclubs they're awful.

Re: 2009 Fall tournaments

He said after Bercy in "La Dépêche du Midi" that he needed to switch off and that he wouldn't play the Interclubs this year.
« Là, tout de suite, j'ai besoin de deux semaines de vacances, de ne rien faire. Les interclubs ne sont donc pas ma priorité, je ne les jouerai pas. Cette coupure va me permettre de revenir plus fort et d'entamer un gros travail physique avant la saison 2010. »

It must be a record, his team hasn't won a match yet in 18 matches!

that's even worse than the mighty doubles with Gilles.

I understand the need for a break though. The Interclubs and also this French Masters "thingie" hardly fit into top players' preparation for next year, though I will watch under certain circumstances.

Re: 2009 Fall tournaments

I think he has, he said in Bercy that he was going to take 2 weeks holiday now. And he hasn't played for his club although they can't win a match to save their lives without him (0-24 now!), so he's certainly on vacation.
