Re: ~~Articles & Interviews about/of Gaël~~

He is going to work with Pier Gauthier during 1 1/2 months (a "test period").
Gael says he wanted to change something in his career, to listen to other things. It was a difficult decision for him to part ways with Thierry because he's learned his job with him. But maybe he wasn't receptive enough to what Champion was telling him at the end. He needed a new "boost" to stay on top.
He talked with different coaches, Benhabiles among others, before choosing Gauthier (because he liked what he said and he seems extremely motivated).
He denied that he is going to move and live in the South of France.
Gauthier is 34 years old and was the coach of Seb and JR Lisnard.
Gael wants to change a few things in his game, he must be more agressive from the baseline.
He also split with Barbarin and doesn't have any physical trainer at the moment.
He will probably come back in Moscow and he will decide after Bercy if he continues working with Gauthier.
