Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

Yeah it does but hopefully once the old system is gone completely the new system will be fairer because I pretty much understand it ... Is this it in a nutshell? You play all the slams, all the 1,000s (bar Monte Carlo if you don't want), 4 of the 500s events (with one being played after the US Open) and you can play as many of the 250s as you want but only your 2 best results will count? That seems to me like a system that will work once the confusion of where the old system comes into it is gone

No one is at FAULT - France played a good, experienced Czech team and that's just the way it goes - "c'est la vie".

Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

It most certainly is NOT Gilles' fault. DC is a team competition so they take the credit together and they take the blame together. No individual should be singled out. I know I'm probably being a bit over-protective of Gilles but I'd be the same no matter who was blamed. In a team game its WRONG to focus on an individual. You're right Schu. They played a very experienced team. This is the best French team I've seen for a long time. Give them time to get experience and they'll be a very different prospect

Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

I'll blame the Czechs. Just too damn good.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
Allez Gasquet~Mathieu~Wawrinka~Mannarino~+++

Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

I think the French team are just still very young and need time to grow and as Eimear says, next year should be a very different prospect, they will be stronger. The rest of their commitments though do not lend themselves well to the demands of DC imho, eg getting a good doubles team together with lots of practice and experience for DC impacts on Jo's and Richie's singles in Grandslams and other tournies. It all places demands on them when they are probably already very stretched.

Such a shame for France and for us as Gasquetaires. I know some people don't like DC but I actually found it quite exciting to follow. I'm not quite so interested now the Frenchies are out.

Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

I knew it yesterday, that's why I was very annoyed by forget choices for this tie.
He has to get fired from this team.Seriously and that another loss confirms it.
He's not the man that will lead France to the victory?Even if he had the n°1 and n°2 of the world in the team he would find a way to make them lose. That's pathetic and I confirm it today.
It gets me furious cause we have the players to pass that tie against the czechs.
The doubles made us lose that tie imo.That was insane to set a inedit duet in such a crucial match.
You can whatever you want but that is just crazy even if the czechs were good during all that week end.
If we have won that point we would have lead 2-1 on sunday.Then tsonga would win his match and france wins it 3-2 .
Pff cant stand forget.
As for richard,his level of play showed recently and especially for doubs,I dont think he would have won that match with extra pressure and you all know how big punition he would have from the french medias so no. He doesnt believe in himself and only God knows why hes acting like that.
For me the only garantee in the french team and the real n°1 is tsonga among the french players.
They dont have the same strong mental such as him,I regret it but thats the truth.
OMG please may forget get ousted from that role.
He makes me

GASQUET

Tsonga - Simon - Monfils - Mathieu - Chardy - Baghdatis
Mannarino - Safin - Santoro - Gulbis- Nishikori

I am cos the Spanish are still in. Can't beat a bit of Rafa on clay and their next tie will be a home tie again too.
