Exclamation The French Journeymen cheering thread !!!!!

DANGER !!!

Beware, these players are extremely dangerous, under-estimate them at your own risk

The French Super Journeymen

they are everywhere, you cannot run, hide or escape from them
and just when you least expect it, they beat you up

they dont do much on tour but when they do, the WHOLE World notices

lets hear it for

Michael Llodra
Cyril Saulnier " nice one Cyril"
Julien Benneteau
Anthony Dupuis
Jerome Haehnel
Gregory Carraz
Paul-Henri Mathieu (yes he's too scared to become a star and would much prefer life like his fellow super-journeymen )
Olivier Mutis
Jean-Rene Lisnard

Arnaud Clement (has settled for life on the outside lane looking in after his one season in the sun and he likes it)
Thierry Ascione
Nicolas Mahut

Gilles Simon
Olivier Patience


now who's the next victim

The Greatest Player that never was:

My greatest achievements:
Australian Open Champ 2002
Roland Garros Champ 2004 & 2002 (my uncle won in 1990)

Australian Open finalist 2003, 2001
Wimbledon finalist 1996 (some would say my dad did the same in 1983)
US Open finalist 1997
Roland Garros finalist 1994 & 1986

Re: The French Journeymen cheering thread !!!!!

Shame on you, for forgetting Fabrice
None of the player you listed, actually gets at his level

Re: The French Journeymen cheering thread !!!!!

I love these guys but they are not really the pride of French sport. Please don't fall into a sort of French bashing, Santoro has been kicking asses for a while now and his style will keep him apart from the journeymen. We have an army of 100 and 200 ranked guys but we lack a true elite player. Grosjean, unfortunately, a bit like Henman, has never won a slam.

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

no comment

"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".

Re: The French Journeymen cheering thread !!!!!

yes it's sad, but no amount of nurturing can create true champions, i suppose.

in clement's case, he has over-achieved beyond belief and should be proud of what he has managed in his career. it's not all over yet

french fans can only hope that youngsters like gasquet and monfils will make good....
