Re: Guga's Last Tango in Paris

His smile brings tears back to my eyes. He's obviously in pain, the trainer was out after 2nd set and he still manages all those beautiful smiles on court.

Re: Guga's Last Tango in Paris

Unfortunately German Eurosport switched to cycling after the Gremelmayr-Djokovic match and I couldn't find a working livestream for Gugas match. Therefore I went outside to enjoy the weather and when I came back and turned on the tv Guga was in the 3rd set.

It was so wonderful to see the atmosphere out there Guga enjoyed the moment and you could really see the joy on his face, as much as the pain unfortunately. The crowd had a great time and got to see some great tennis.

To be honest I didn't cried during the match and his speech afterwards. Somehow I was happy for Guga that he could end his career on this court and feel the support and love of the French crowd one more time

I feel emotional now, but mostly because of all the memories to Guga's unique career. He has given us so much over the last years and it is sad that his career has been so overshadowed by injuries, but he is a personality who could handle the situation and make the best out of his life. I wish him all the best for his future - he has deserved it

Re: Guga's Last Tango in Paris

Q. Normally the crowd should have been supporting you because we're in Paris. We heard a few, Paul, Paul, but even the French were shouting name of Guga. How did you experience this?

PAUL‑HENRI MATHIEU: Oh, fine. Even I would have shouted Guga if I had been able to do that. (laughter.) He's a legend of tennis. He is part of the history of Roland Garros. He won three times, and it's quite normal.

Q. Would you say that this was one of the most emotional matches in your career?

PAUL‑HENRI MATHIEU: Yes. It was very special. At one stage I felt I was playing a final game ‑‑ a match in a final, because the crowd was there and there was a beautiful atmosphere and everybody was shouting, Guga.

It's true that a game like this, a match like this, you play it once in your career and that's it.
