DC 2008: Quarters --> USA

No thread about DC yet?

France will meet Romania in the first round again. No Russia in the 1/4 though
It will be interesting to see which double team will be chosen by Forget to play the terrifying Tecau and Mergea...

That is if Forget remains DC captain.
There is a long article about it in L'Équipe again today ("Forget tient la corde"), it's still not decided yet, but it will probably be Forget.
Bîmes says they will change a few things because some younger players are not too happy about the way the team is working. So the coaches of the players will be more involved from now on. Bîmes means that during the tie in Moscow Paulo and Richard were often calling their own coach. That's not Forget's style at all, but he is ready to compromise on this and to let the coaches be around.

As for the draw, I'm just glad to avoid Russia again because I've really, really had an overdose this time with Russia-France and Russia-Germany in a row.

No Russia

Potential QF with the US. Too bad it won't be played in France so no Roddick and Blake at RG.

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

BTW, I wonder if Blake and Roddick will bother about DC next year if they win this year.

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

Is Jerome-Jonathan eligible to play doubles rubber yet?

Really interesting to see who'll play doubles together. Many great players to choose from The only problem is they don't win in an actual match

I saw doubles matches of Mika/Nico... really don't think they're "that" much of a good team

Given Forget's reliance on "experience", this is not very likely.

Particularly if they have to go to Austria in February for a super-slow clay court

The terrifying Mergea and Tecau who lost in 3 sets in Japan

We'll be lucky if we get any point. But I am just happy I get to see a team i like home.

Allez cute coach!!! To the MC!!!

But aren't they like the only two active French players who has won GS title together? Of course, Fabrice-Mika doesn't count for some reason

Maybe our favorite French president could take over the job

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

I think there were rumors about Escudé being the new coach of the french team. Don't know if he really was asked to work for the federation but that would be so great to see him back in the tennis world.

OME!!!!!! That effectively killed Paulo's career (I understand he'd be your future husband, no? ) and as happy as I was about Russia winning I felt and feel SO sorry for Paulo. Even Marat felt sorry when he consoled crying Paulo.

Oh that would be really great, Escudé used to be my favourite French player.
