Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

Is Richie allowed to play in the 4th or 5th rubber, if he was selected?

Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

.....il s'est entraîné avec Richard Gasquet. Et il reste du travail : «Lui a fait l'entraînement en marchant, moi j'étais à fond. J'ai fini "carpette" et lui était nickel ! Pourtant, on faisait des "droite - gauche". Je pense donc que j'ai encore un peu de boulot.»

Full article: http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/breves2...er-modele.html

The article only praises Tsonga's role as supporter, mentions Benneteau, not a word about Richard. But then it comes.

...he (Tsonga) practised with Richard this Friday morning and there remains work to be done. "He was marching and I was at the back. In the end I was ko and he was doing great. However, we did left-right (I do not know what he means by that), I think I have still work to do."

Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

just watched the French win their tie - and the whole French team looked so happy
But the announcer on our coverage said at least twice that Gasquet was injured , and thus unavailable to play in this tie
Was he just wrong ? Or has some new injury come up that I have not heard about
Any news from France that does not appear in the US papers ?

I never heard about an injury this week... I think it's wrong.

Congrats to the French team!

I also heard that rumour from someone present in Lyon already on Friday, but I think it is just plain wrong. Reportedly Richard practised with Tsonga in Lyon on Friday, he is in singles and doubles draw in Metz, I can't imagine him not withdrawing on time, if he was really injured.

My interpretation is that someone just messed up Tsonga and Richard and it was repeated without checking. There was nothing about it on any of the usual French sources.

Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

Thanks for confirming my suspicions guys
American tennis announcers just don't know what they are talking about quite often
Should have known , since it was Ted Robinson making the comment
He is about as knowledgeable about tennis as my dog
And glad that Gasquet is healthy , and ready for action in Metz . Wishing him good luck !
and also glad to see the French team was in total support of each other at the Davis Cup tie .

A guy reporting from Lyon on rgnet says that Richard also practised today with Tsonga. So I really think the injury stuff is misinformation.
