Welcome around and thanks for the article, Ally!
He says everything went wrong, he couldn't cope with the wind and he's "dismayed" it happened here in Miami.
He was ill the day before, he was throwing up and he felt lethargic during the match. He has a cheese allergy, he wonders if he ate some.
(But he also says it's his fault if he wasn't able to deal with that.)
Delaitre: they must work on a minimum of consistency, so he doesn't come down to such a level on a bad day. Bolelli lulled him with his non-rhythm, but Gael should be able to beat that kind of guys even when he doesn't feel well. Really strong players do that. It was a very good week in Sunrise, he beat guys who were at least as good as Bolelli, but it's another setback and they can't afford to waste any more time now.
And it looks like Gael hasn't given up on being picked for the DC.
He says it's different on clay and he thinks he has the profile of a DC player because in DC, it's all about playing one big match.
(And in the first part of the article, the journalist compares Sunrise and his paddle title last year - both an interlude between early defeats. But at least something always happens with him.)
I like how the journalist calls him "le Zébulon".
