lol I already said it on another Forum, but it only looks that way What you see on the livestream are the VIP boxes. Ahoy is a big venue and on a day like today there are already around 3000 people sitting in the stands, you just can't see it on the stream

Good easy win Gael

Re: Rotterdam & Marseille 2009

In L'Equipe today:
Quote:
Reprise en douceur
Pour son premiermatch depuis l’Australie, Gaël Monfils a profité de l’abandon du Suisse Bohli.

LA ROUE A TOURNÉ hier pour Gaël Monfils. Contraint à l’abandon face à Gilles Simon en huitièmes de finale de l’Open d’Australie, le Français a bénéficié à Rotterdam de celui de son adversaire. À Melbourne, c’est son poignet droit qui avait cédé. Hier, breaké dès le premier jeu du deuxième set, le Suisse Stéphane Bohli a préféré jeter l’éponge, victime de douleurs au genou gauche. Ce renoncement offre au Français un deuxième tour face au vainqueur du match Llodra-Karlovic. Mais il ne fait pas obligatoirement son affaire.
Sorti des qualifs, 154e joueur mondial, Bohli représentait en effet l’adversaire idéal pour s’étalonner après deux semaines de coupure, ou presque. À sa sortie du court, Monfils restait forcément dubitatif. « Je n’ai pas eu le temps de voir grand-chose, glissa-t-il. Tout ce que je peux dire, c’est que je me sentais de mieux en mieux au fur et à mesure que le match avançait. Par exemple, je suis satisfait du dernier jeu. Pour le breaker, j’ai vraiment bien tapé dans la balle. Mais, franchement, je ne peux pas en dire plus. Sauf que je m’attendais à pire pour une reprise. » Monfils souffre d’un petit kyste au poignet droit. Qu’il soigne quotidiennement par des soins adéquats (glace, drainage, etc.).
Le principe de précaution a conditionné sa reprise d’entraînement.« À mon retour d’Australie, j’ai d’abord pris quelques jours de repos chez moi, en Suisse, avec mes potes, explique-t-il. J’ai réattaqué le physique à Roland il y a un peu plus d’une semaine, mais uniquement le bas. Et j’ai retouché la raquette seulement il y a trois jours et demi... » Accompagné à Rotterdam de son coach, Roger Rasheed, et de son kiné et ostéopathe, Stéphane Falchi, Monfils navigue un peu à vue. « Évidemment, je manque d’entraînement, dit-il. Mais, hormis Jo (Tsonga), qui arrive sur la lancée de son titre à Johannesburg, les autres aussi ont coupé après l’Australie. Là, je remets mon jeu en place. On verra bien où ça me mènera. »
VINCENT COGNET
Bohli's retirement (left knee) wasn't necessarily a good thing for Gaël. Bohli was the perfect opponent to try to find his bearings after 2 weeks off. Gaël says he was feeling better and better, he's happy about his last game and he was also hitting the ball nicely in the game in the 1st set when he got the break, but that's really all he can say about the match. He was expecting to do worse after the two weeks off.
He has a little cyst in the wrist which still requires daily treatment (ice, drainage, etc.)
He picked up the racquet 3 days ago only. So he's feeling out of practice and he's still trying to get his game in place, but he means it's the same for everybody apart from Jo.
Rasheed and his new physio Stéphane Falchi are with him in Rotterdam.
