Fresh start in 2007 - Rebound Ace season

New start, new coach, new haircut and a great-looking body - Gaël is ready to kick ass in 2007.
He's got a lot of points to defend in Doha, but since he didn't do much after that last year, he'll have plenty of time to improve.

The draw is not too bad since he's not seeded:
(5)Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) vs Daniele Bracciali (ITA)
Andreas Seppi (ITA) vs Gael Monfils (FRA)
Thomas Johansson (SWE) vs Younes El Ayanoui (MAR)
(2)Ivan Ljubicic (CRO) vs Q

Don't know why, but this made me laugh out loud. Should be interesting.

Re: Fresh start in 2007 - Rebound Ace season

Easy win!
Seppi pretty much sucked, but never mind, 6-3 6-4 is a nice win.
They all played pretty poorly today anyway, Baggy and Murray too, Gael really wasn't so bad in comparison.

Plus: he looked so cute with his short hair!
I was when he fell and almost hurt his ankle again. He said in the interview he will tape his ankles well from now on, but I couldn't see anything.

The interview for "Tennis Magazine", I'm translating it in the other thread:
"Donc - et c'est le cas de le dire - vous ne comptez pas lever le pied concernant ces glissades acrobatiques?
G.M. : Là, pour le moment, je ne peux pas trop le faire. Mais c'est effectivement ma façon de jouer, je ne peux pas changer comme ça, du jour au lendemain. Ce que je vais faire de nouveau, en revanche, c'est jouer avec les chevilles bien bandées."

Re: Fresh start in 2007 - Rebound Ace season

You can watch the matches with the Eurosport livestream:
Live stream from Doha
They'll have a good coverage during the whole week.

Re: Fresh start in 2007 - Rebound Ace season

Fini Doha, after his loss 6-4 6-2 against Youzhny, they also lost in doubles 6-3 6-0, but they surely just wanted to leave. The tournament was a borefest anyway, no crowd, freezing temperatures...

Why doesn't he play next week? He needs match practice. Or did I miss his name on an entry list?

Re: Fresh start in 2007 - Rebound Ace season

I just saw he will replace Philippoussis in Auckland with a WC.
("Mark Philippoussis' exit has led to Gael Monfils' entry into next week's Heineken Open in Auckland. The 46th-ranked Frenchman has accepted a wild card into the Jan. 8-13 event, replacing Mark Philippoussis, who was forced to withdraw after injuring his right knee during Wednesday's Hopman Cup match." http://www.sportsmediainc.com/tennis...&bannerregion=)
