The article explains the circonstances of Gael's press conference and the atmosphere with the journalists.
After the US Open, Champion and Barbarin had told the journalists pretty clearly that they were a little bit fed up with Gael's inconstancy (in his game and his character).
More and more people are making fun of Gael in France, his "foolishness", the fact that he prefers playing basket-ball with his buddies every night whilst people expect from him discipline and professionalism, etc.
Gael is very aware of what people are saying about him, he wants to have good relationships with the media and that's why he gave this press conference.
And you can really feel that during the interview: the journalists asking very moralizing questions; on the other side, Gael, looking shy and a bit worried according to the blogger, trying to explain that he's far from perfect, but well, he's just a 20 years old guy.
Vous dites que vous n’êtes pas facile à gérer au quotidien, qu’est-ce que vous entendez par là ?
Non, je ne suis pas facile parce que je suis jeune déjà. Je fais quelques conneries de mon âge donc je pense que pour quelqu’un, c’est pas facile. Faut s’adapter. Je sais que je me vexe assez rapidement, je me bloque sur certaines paroles. Il faut que la personne trouve les bons mots et sachent m’écouter en même temps, mais aussi me mène parce que j’ai besoin d’être bousculé quelques fois.
"I'm not easy to work with in everyday life - because I'm young, in the first place. Sometimes I do BS like people of my age, so it's not easy for the other persons. They must adapt. I'm also upset/hurt very easily, sometimes I can't get over some statements. The other person has to find the right words, must also be able to listen to me and to lead me at the same time because I sometimes need to be rushed." Etc.
He's really cute, poor boy.
