Re: Gael's Hardcourt season

It will be very tough against Gilles. He's tired and they know each other so well. I think he will be too short for a 2nd week in this AO.

Re: Gael's Hardcourt season

Amazing effort from both players today!!

I hope Gael is alright and didn't damage himself too much. Next up Montpellier unless he gets picked for the Davis Cup.

Allez!!

It will allow him to count one more optional result (2 if he does the same for Miami) : at the moment he can only count 3 of them because of 4 zeropointers for not playing last year despite the commitment to playing 4 ATP500 tournaments in a year for a top-30 player.

I think if he also skips Miami, it's a good choice to get two more optional results and take a rest between the indoor season and the clay season (with the Davis cup tie in Argentina first) where his injuries have seldom allowed him to compete well.

PS : I've read that his match against Simon has been blamed by many journalists but personally I had another impression, I think it really was a great match where both players were admirable (including Simon, even though people know I'm not a fan I really admired him there )

Re: Gael's Hardcourt season

Well it's not great, he has still no structure

Quote:
« Uniquement sur la volonté »

GAËL MONFILS, vainqueur hier de Bemelmans

(7-5, 6-4), se sent en manque de physique et en manque d’entraînement mais estime que

son mental lui permet de gagner ses matches.

MONTPELLIER –de notre envoyée spéciale

« QUE PENSEZ-VOUS de votre sortie du top 100 ?

– Ça ne me touche pas. Je n’y pense même pas. J’essaie de jouer semaine après semaine, de gagner le plus de matches possibles, de gagner en confiance et de retrouver un bon niveau de jeu. Sans prétention, je pense que le reste suivra. Je m’interroge plutôt sur la façon dont l’ATP calcule les points. C’est un peu bizarre, mais ce sont les règles. Mon agent me disait hier de ne pas regarder l’ATP (108e cette semaine) mais la Race (20e). Il avait raison sur ce coup-là.

– Qu’avez-vous fait depuis votre retour d’Australie ?

– Je n’ai rejoué au tennis qu’ici (à Montpellier). Après l’Australie, j’ai fait du renforcement pour mon genou. Je n’ai pas encore assez de temps pour travailler le foncier. C’est juste de l’entretien et surtout beaucoup de rééducation.

– Pourtant votre début de saison est plutôt bon…

– Je n’ai pas encore d’entraînement, je n’ai pas d’entraîneur. C’est uniquement sur la volonté. J’essaie de bien faire. J’arrive à garder le cap, mais ce n’est pas encore bon. Sur le court, j’essaie de faire des choses simples. Pour l’instant, ça me sourit et j’ai la possibilité de faire des matches. Race ou pas, je peux très bien jouer au tennis, ne me taper que des grosses têtes de série d’entrée et rester au même classement.

– Où en êtes-vous dans votre recherche d’entraîneur ?

– J’ai quelques pistes. Ça prend un peu de temps car il faut tomber d’accord sur le nombre de semaines, la méthode de travail, le lieu, la structure, etc. J’espère progresser rapidement dans ma recherche. Si je peux avoir un entraîneur demain, je le prendrai. Je ne fixe pas de date limite, mais je pense que le plus vite sera le mieux pour moi. » – S. D.
