Agree

I still remember watching Escude played that DC final against Australia

Re: DC 2008: 1st round --> Romania

Are these new rumours about Escudé? Because last time, Escudé declined when he was offered the job of captain. That's how the whole story started, Escudé was asked by somebody from the FFT during Monte-Carlo if he was interested in the job, Escudé was shocked to be asked this "behind Forget's back", so to say, and went to the press with the story.

There is a whole page about this topic again today in L'Équipe, the French DC soap opera is going on.
Richie says he's sure Forget will remain captain because he's the best one for France, but Forget himself says it isn't sure and right now, he isn't officially the captain and not commenting on the draw. If he keeps the job, he wants to be able to take the decisions - and he wasn't pleased about yesterday's article in l'Équipe about the changes in the French team.

I was a fan of Russia back then... that's why they won
It's a whole different story now

Back then, I felt like Paulo deserved it for beating Marat in Moscow

Anyway, if that actually happens... Paulo might ask for an immunity not to be chosen for the tie

Oh, I didn't know that.
Well, I saw the Kremlin Cup match and Marat deserved to lose that, Paulo was like the new improved version of Marat, he played mind-blowing tennis these 2 weeks (Moscow, Lyon) so I 'fell in love' with Paulo. Disclaimer - no no, I don't want to marry him, I just want to hug him every time I see his sad biiiig biiiig puppy eyes.

back to Genci! Just wanted to say that at least I am not a masochist like you called Ome. Ooops, or maybe I am (being a Marat 'fangirl' and all).

The thing is I really like this soap opera.

I am going to buy l'équipe then and will send the articles later.

I really want a revenge for Paulo Not that I enjoy seeing him losing a heart-breaking match

I used to want to hug him... but now, I just want to him. I have loved him for too long

Hehe, most tennis players, at least the ones I like seem to be headcases. But I still like them.

Ah, he has a short memory then. In the long L'Equipe interview before RG he had said he would not be sure if he would vote for forget.

Richard should just stay out of this. And nobody outside France understands what is going on anyway. I am not even sure if the French themselves do.

You must be an

I couldn't be both a fan of Paulo and Marat so I had to chose one at the beginning of 2003 And that's why I'm only a royal fan of Paulo... one headcase is more than enough

BTW, Marat was so mean in DC this year I flew all the way to France just to see the tie live on TV, and Marat destroyed Paulo

Oh gosh, poor you then! Yes Marat was so mean once again.

And yeah, as I joke it's a miracle I'm still alive.
I'm a main Marat fan & apologist here but I still do suport Paulo and Richie too of course and other young talented headcases (Baggy & Berdman ), I just don't have time to visit their forums much.
Well, Nadal used to be good for my sanity but lately .... It must be the masochist in me.
