I believe it. Everybody watching the match noticed he has bulked up.

Mid-December he said he had gained *more than* 4 kg muscles.
I prefer him slim. I hope he won't lose speed if he's too heavy?
Towards the end of Chang's career, he decided to bulk up for extra power. There was a trade-off though, he lost a great deal of mobility. Because that went against his natural game (and I don't think it benefited him in the strength department either), his results suffered for it.

Gael is still young though, and 4kg isn't really much on his 191cm frame. It seems to have gone straight to his biceps anyway.

Re: >>>!GaŽl in pictures!<<<

I remember it was an issue for Coria too when he tried to bulk up a little bit with Perlas because they wanted to change his game and his serve. But you're right, both Chang and Coria are much shorter, the comparison is not apt.

Re: >>>!GaŽl in pictures!<<<

There are a few sites where I have seen this year's nike line, and now that Raf has changed his look, I didn't see any sleeveless shirts in the mix, hopefully they will have some. I have always wanted some sleeveless lacoste stuff, maybe he should think about switching,

I am very interested to see Gael play, he already has so much power, and I'm sure he could afford to lose just a bit of mobility if he steps about 2 feet closer to the baseline in rallies. Either way, his arms are huge...I bet Hewitt is frowning at his '05 rasheed days

Re: >>>!GaŽl in pictures!<<<

How do you call that hairstyle in English? In French I'd call it a "coupe pétard" (literally: "firecracker haircut"). "Spiky hairstyle"?

With Pauline in training:

I"m actually a huge fan of the "mad scientist" look he has going. It fits his style of play, explosive and unpredictable.

"Mad scientist look"!
Last time again the article in L'Equipe mentioned his "coupe pťtard" and I was wondering if there is a funny expression to say that in English too, that's why I asked.

I like it too on him, it suits him since he's so tall and a bit crazy.
