I will, you can be sure of that.

On a very fast surface, Richard coming back from clay, this is close. And it is not Tsonga, I am worried about, but Gael.

I'm sure Forget won't play him. Why would you play someone ranked 69 over someone in the top 20. That would just be asking for trouble. Barring injury he is surely safe for the live rubbers. It wouldn't be surprising if he played sunday but if it was a dead rubber then it doesn't matter is just good training for indian wells.

If Monfils or Tsonga can't play on Friday, I would play Gasquet infront of Llodra & Benny.

Re: Richie In The States- 2 Masters 1000. Indian Wells (11-03-2010)

Here's what he says in L'Equipe, he clearly sees himself as a sparring-partner, trains 4 hours a day with the others and says he's not getting ready for Friday, but for Indian Wells:
Quote:
Appelé de dernière heure par Guy Forget, pour occuper la stricte fonction de sparring-partner, Richard Gasquet ne ménage pas sa peine depuis samedi dernier. Pourtant, deux jours auparavant, il n’envisageait même pas de faire un détour par Toulon. « J’étais encore à Acapulco quand Guy m’a appelé, raconte-t-il. C’était jeudi, 8 heures du matin, et il m’a réveillé ! Franchement, qu’il me convoque comme cinquième m’a étonné. Je trouvais tout à fait naturel de ne pas être dans les quatre. Mais ça fait plaisir de retrouver le groupe. » Gasquet vit une semaine forcément différente. « Je ne me prépare pas pour jouer vendredi, je me prépare pour Indian Wells ! sourit-il. Ça change tout… Voilà, je joue le sparring de luxe et ça ne plaisante pas. Rien que mardi, j’ai passé quatre heures et demie sur le court. Je suis là pour préparer les gars. Mais c’est normal, de toute façon, une Coupe Davis ne se gagne pas à quatre. J’avais déjà énormément bossé en Amérique du Sud, ce stage est dans la continuité. » Gasquet ne regrette qu’une chose : l’horaire du match de rugby Toulon-Biarritz. « Ça se joue samedi, en plein pendant le double… Dommage, je serais bien allé faire un tour à Mayol ! »

good attitude.

Is he saying that he is gutted that he'll miss the rugby on saturday because it's during the doubles?

He's such a sports tard.

Yup good attitude - and guess training with friends is not a bad way to train. ALthough it is indoors (isn't it) and IW is windy outdoor courts and warmer than in France ...

I'm still gonna miss seeing him in the Team Davis Cup photo with the guys all dressed up in their suits - he'd be a nice addition to that pic. Even though it is probably best for him not to be playing (and better if he wasn't there at all but practicing in IW) I still feel like as long as he is there, he should be part of the 4 since he obviously seems to like being part of DC even after all his "history".

As for the rugby he just BETTER not decide to watch it or follow twitter results or anything on his cell phone during the match!!!!!!!

I think the same...
At least, he can practise with friends (and good players). Even if he won't play, he is part of the team.

And yes, for the rugby , I think he had learnt the lesson...

What a relief! I hope for no last minute changes.

Re: Richie In The States- 2 Masters 1000. Indian Wells (11-03-2010)

can he play when he's not officially on the team. I'm never sure of the rules with the dead rubbers of Davis Cup.

Simon Greul in first round. Monfils in the 2nd...

I'm waiting for a toughest draw, so I'm quite happy!
