Re: Andre and Pete will play again !!!

After the match in indian wells, i thought they were'nt going to play each other anymore... Well, i guess money makes forget everything.

"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".
