Thanks for the vid PinkFeather, and for the article Fran !
I won't have the time to convert/upload it anyway, I would have tried to if it was really good, but it wasn't. I was bored most of the time, to be honest. We don't learn anything new, it's just a recap of the clay season with one or two funny moments, but that's pretty much all.
It was divided in four parts : first Richie, then Gaël, then Jo, Gilles to finish. They only focus on each of them and we never see them together (apart from when Richie plays against Jo in Rome) which was what made the previous 2 that interesting in my opinion.
- Nothing new about Richie's story. We just have a few depressing quotes by Peyre not refering to the coke stuff but which sounded a bit alarming to me : "he doesn't play well but he doesn't deserve to play well" ; "that's not Gasquet anymore" about this match lost against, was it Rochus or someone like that. Some pretty amazing Richie-being-handsome moments though, which were the only interest of this part imho
- Gaël's part was the best (as always I would add!) This guy is seriously the cutest thing on Earth
they filmed him when he went on that boat with the sailor (cf the pics Fran posted on his forum) and he's enjoying the experience so much, just like a little kid, so adorable
Again, the highlight of the series. His knees seem better, but he might or might not play RG -they don't know anything more than us
(on voit l'excroissance osseuse qu'il a montrée aux journalistes à un moment, ça fait peur !)
- Nothing new about Jo either, except he doesn't find alarming the fact that he has only played three matches on clay so far, and lost two. On the other hand, I don't know if the guy finds anything ever alarming
there is a funny moment about him filming an add for Wii tennis with Murray and Macenroe. They seemed to have enjoyed themselves muchly.
- Practice session with Gilles in RG. Lots of blinding smiles and generalized handsomness which means I don't remember much of what he said
Tulasne spoke a lot too, about how DC started a crispation (?) in Gilles, and Gilles said that the match he lost against Djoko in Dubai hurted him a lot more than he would have liked to. It seems he started going down from that point.
There you go, but really, apart from Gael's awwwwness and Gillou's smiles, which they could have filmed for all 35 minutes as far as I'm concerned, there wasn't anything really interesting so don't expect too much.
