Forget was already bald he looked more older
I think the FFT wants someone who can hold the players who are big ego who are not always making the good choices for exemple the clay this we
Because another surface would have been better ??? Isner was excellent at serve, imagine in hard court for example... it's too easy to criticize after. Clay was the best choice I think. Moreover, clay season begins, it's better for everybody.
Arno or Seb are maybe not the best to stand up to these players. FFT want a captain who is the real leader of the team . I don't think the FFT members who elects the captain wants a guy like Arno they surely see him as a friend captain with no experience
The problem is that there nobody with that profile that's why there no name who goes out. There is also the problem of the english that I read by journalists. True that Forget was able to speak fluently and that not the case of all the candidates We need someone with an iron fist in a velvet glove who speaks english and enough loved and credible for the players Arno I don't know if he can be this but I really think he could be good as a coach anyway he can be worst than Roux Then it would depend of the captain of course. He could maybe be a could combo with Escude
I really think arnaud has the same values as Forget, he's perfect for his team spirit and his love of the davis cup. But it's not shocking to think he won't have this leadership among the players. I have the same doubts.
He's a good friend of mika, jo etc... and it won't be easy to be accepted as a captain, as a chief, and nomore as just a good friend. Arnaud can be a bit crazy sometimes etc... and yes, Forget was 35 when he started, but Forget was totally different, he was more mature. It's weird to imagine Arnaud to take big decisions, to be their representant, and I don't talk about his english, that's not the most important. Anyway he speaks english, not fluently, but enough to say the main things.
Well, it's difficult to explain but I can understand the FFT's doubts.
It doesn't mean they will change the rules just because they don't want arnaud as a captain !
Players will take the decision I think.
