US Open Series 2009

He's already in Montreal, so it looks like he's really back this time.

His schedule: Montreal and Cincy + USO

Some news in L'Equipe today:
http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/breves2...de-retour.html
He's been training 5-6 hours a day lately. The article mentions the wrist and the knee again, but Chamagne (his condition trainer) says that he should be fine judging by how he's been hitting the ball in the past few days.

A short video of a practice session here:

Rasheed is there too, it's been one year now since they started working together, it must be a record for Gaël!

Re: US Open Series 2009

Thanks ! I like the description "flashy Frenchman" a nice way to say that he's got no clue when it comes to colours. Orange and blue, Gael ?
Ils se sont bien trouvés en effet. Ca me plait

Re: US Open Series 2009

1am? I might stay up for that... If I have nothing else to do, like sleeping Is anyone else here going to watch, because I'm not going to watch by myself, that's boring

Re: US Open Series 2009

I'm watching, but I'm also watching Petzsche + working, so posting at the same time would really be too much asked.

Marat decided to play with handicap and to give Gaël a 4-0 lead in the 1st set.
