Re: Fall tournaments 2009

rough translation

he said he's extremelly exhausted since the Asian tournaments, he can't barely move, run so it's tough because his game is based on his phisycal condition... he says he's motivated but he doesn't believe in his chances in the tournament even though it's Christmas soon, he'll take what he gets...

Re: Fall tournaments 2009

Oh boy. I guess he can't take the very high load of physical work with Rasheed and is now paying for it? He's been complaining about exhaustion for so long now (I'm not over his physical collapse in NYC yet) and taking a few days off doesn't seem to help a bit.
But it sounds worse than ever today. He says that's the reason why he keeps falling on the ground, his legs aren't strong enough anymore. He has nothing left in the tank after 15 minutes and it's very tough to cope with it mentally since it's essential to his game. He's eager to play, but dismayed to feel so hopeless and to play so poorly.

Re: Fall tournaments 2009

Considering he's exhausted he's really motivated and running after everything in this match so nice to see, a bit more agressive as well

Re: Fall tournaments 2009

Yep, he did a much, much better job today, the first set was a bit until the very last game, but the attitude was good, the groundstrokes much heavier and he was so solid on his serve. It's not like Julien was wasting his chances, he just couldn't do anything each time he had a BP because Gaël kept hitting big serves then.

Marin now who mentioned Gaël in his "toughest opponents" video although they've never played against each other. (But he said he fears Gaël's speed especially and Gaël isn't as fast as he can in Bercy.)

Re: Fall tournaments 2009

Gael Lost first set 6-3, Cilic is playing good though, but Gael really should have made Cilic serve out the set

Re: Fall tournaments 2009

Gaels played some incredible points tonight, looks like he's on his way to a win. Really hope he doesn't throw it away!

Re: Fall tournaments 2009

Bravo, Gael! Happy to see that you are the last standing Frenchman! It was not always pretty, but who cares?

Re: Fall tournaments 2009

All the slides in the last service games of Cilic was useless I didn't expect him in semi but in Paris he is always great. If he serves like he did in the last set he has his chance
