I have no time to translate, but it's a quite funny description of the match for people who understand French. "ER" on Suzanne Lenglen at the end of the 3rd set.
Gaël says he was cramping on his serve, but Champion is not worried, he saw Gaël's face after the match and he was not looking that exhausted in his opinion.
The journalist points out he's one of the least disappointing Frenchies in RG every year - or maybe even the least disappointing Frenchie. Gaël means there are less expectations towards him and it's perfect for him. But he has high expectations for himself. He's happy to play in Paris in front of his family and his friends. And one needs to be happy to play well.
Of course, the journalist goes on observing that he might be happy, but that doesn't mean he's playing well.
"Not yet", Champion answers.
Horna helped a lot yesterday. Gaël admits he often lost his concentration because of his serve which was not working the way he wanted. He managed to win somehow, but it was a bit of a mess.
The journalist says there is a lot to criticize about Monfils for sure, but not his fierce determination. His game is lifeless, his FH not as big as it should be, but the guy is hanging on and working hard.
Champion: if some people thought that Gaël was going to come back on the tour and crush everybody around with huge FH winners and tons of aces, they were dreaming. He had warned Gaël that he would need to win matches by the sweat of his brow before being able to play well again. And that's what Gaël is doing. He's still alive and Champion is so happy for him. When they talk about RG, Champion doesn't tell him the goal is to reach the 2nd week, he talks about winning the tournament. He isn't boasting. He just doesn't want to be too "timorous", too French.
(That's what Champion says at the end, not Gaël - he gets criticized for talking too big, but if Champion himself is talking with him that way...)
