Oh, I see what you mean for Gilles, I'm fascinated too when I get to see him in person. When I saw him in doubles with Jo in Hamburg, I completely forgot about the opponents during the whole match. The guys next to me were talking about Schüttler all the time, I was thinking they were quite the Shaker fanboys, really, and it took me AGES to realize they were talking of him because he was actually playing. ^^
Maybe it's the opposite for Gaël and he looks better in pics than in person, I can't judge since Gaël Monfils has been successfully hiding away from me for a while now! He always withdraws from the events I'm going to. He really doesn't like Hamburg. But he won't escape again this year - je l'aurai.
I'm the same with Richard. He's the only one of my top 6 (the 4 Frenchies + Rafa and Mandy) that I didn't get to see up close. I only saw him once from far away in Bercy 2007, when he beat Jo, and I basically only saw the backwards cap. But you can't avoid French tournaments forever, Richie darling
You saw Gilles playing with Jo ! How was it? Aw, they're almost as cute as Gilles playing with Gaël (Yeah, I love to see the boys hanging out together
) Are you the one who took those pictures of them playing together ? I know a few of them are around on the net, not taken by a pro.
Don't worry, Gaël was perfectly okay to look at, even a lot better than that
He can go through so much expressions on his face or only with his eyes, it's so funny. But beyond the handsomness, what I enjoyed the most were all the jokes, the smiles and the sweet gestures they had for each other, like when at 1-0 in the second set, Gaël took Gilles' bottle first and gave it to him before picking up his own like it was all perfectly normal. I can't help it, I find it so cute and touching that they're so close. I'm such a fangirl
Argh, the board is bitching again.
The reps system is easier to explain in French.
Merci beaucoup ! C'est beaucoup plus clair maintenant, et effectivement je vois mieux l'intérêt. Bon, j'essaierai de mettre ça en pratique ^^ (faudrait juste que je me souvienne d'aller voir mon user cp un peu plus souvent, là j'y étais pas allée depuis un mois et j'avais des messages de gens qui me remerciaient pour des trucs que je ne me rappelais même pas avoir postés, ahem.)
