Thanks Francoise! Nice to know your opinion of me

The level is not always very high. It's definitely a different style than "Dans l'intimité des bleus" with Fabrice and Seb 2 years ago.
I blame Gillou

Thanks for the translations!
Loving Jo in that thong too

Re: Articles, videos, news... about French tennis

I had to think of the Gillesextards in general, not only of you, Lesley!

The expression Richard uses is no essential at all, Puschkin, Xavier had to explain it because even native speakers didn't understand it. Never say that in French, guys.

Merci beaucoup!
The thong is a present from Wino to Jo, actually.
(Oh gosh, it all sounds so low-level when we start explaining everything. )

The photos of Gilles will be in Men's health in April or May, I think.

There also were old-fashioned pics of the guys in L'Equipe a few months ago in the now famous article "Et si c'étaient les nouveaux Mousquetaires?" It was posted here:

I translated it in the player forums, but it will take for ever to find the translations with the crappy MTF servers...

Re: Articles, videos, news... about French tennis

The pics of the Musketeers article and the summaries in English:
Gaël: ~~Articles & Interviews about/of Gaël~~
Gilles: Articles & interviews
Richard: Articles & Interviews

It seems I didn't post the part about Jo. I know I had at least partially translated it too, but I guess I didn't post it because it was at the time of Bercy and the atmosphere was a bit tense. Sorry, I feel quite silly now.

Re: Articles, videos, news... about French tennis

oh god, Winogradsky got him the thong? this is even more hilarious.
and Richie, bad bad bad boy, you kiss your mommy with that mouth? well i suppose it shouldn't sound as bad in french as the english translations.
Thanks everyone for all the clarifications, very much appreciated.
one last thing, does Gilles say "six-cinq, six-cinq" for the score when reciting their story with Gael or is it 6-0, 6-0?
merci.

Re: Articles, videos, news... about French tennis

Gilles says he was always beating him 6-1 6-1.
No problem, just ask if there are other things you don't get, even for us it's not always easy to understand them (poor sound quality + they use a lot of slang), so it must be really hard for you.

Re: Articles, videos, news... about French tennis

thank you, 6-5 wasn't making much sense.
i can understand written french without a lot of trouble but listening is much more difficult. especially, when they all have somewhat different accents. I have to crank up the volume and pay twice as much attention because the guys don't bother to open their mouths when they speak.

Re: Articles, videos, news... about French tennis

My goodness, I'm starting to think that Richie is as we would say in England, "A right potty mouth!" Well, Richard's love life must be fantastic given his dreadful luck lately.
I wonder if Gonzo ever got to/will ever get to hear it! Richie always seems like he has been so well bought up too

Re: Articles, videos, news... about French tennis

The Richard part is a highlight "for sure".
The other parts I liked as a Simonfilstarde were:
- Gilles' little smile when a fangirl screams because she got his sweaty towel, I found it priceless
- and Gaël in Rotterdam made me laugh when he's listening to the music in his hotel room and also when he tells a fan "yeah, I was sick tonight during my match - that's why I'm coming to the Burger King now!"

The guys are quite funny, even if they're borderline embarrassing at times, they really should watch a little bit what they say when they're filmed - but the coaches come across as pretty annoying in the video, Richard's physio, Tulasne saying the same boring stuff again...

I uploaded it on Megaupload since some of you wanted to save it:

De rien! But I stopped by mistake the video during the recording, I'm not sure if the file is OK, I didn't check it again.

I agree. That part looked as if scrpted and rehearsed.

Re: Articles, videos, news... about French tennis

This is the link to dl the documentary Jeu décisif about the Moratoglou Academy :
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ORO0NUT8
Marion gave an excellent description of it here :
The Magic Monfils Brotherhood ===<--@

Incidentally you might enjoy reading some of the following pages in that last thread. It's the very first discussion (not the last I am sure) about Gilles' and Richard's notorious comments in the Les quatre mousquetaires series. Beware, it's pretty graphic, but we had a good time


SIMONFILS
& TSONGASQUET
+ a few others...
