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

Is this the 1st episode of the new series or have we missed some?

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

Thanks a lot Fran, I didn't expect them to upload it so quickly. It doesn't work in Spain though, could someone please record and upload it ?
is there anything interesting ? if they're covering from Melbourne to IW, they won't speak much about each

The .flv file:

I didn't watch very carefully yesterday, I can't remember anything really new, there are no highlights. I like they cover a longer period because I found half of the episodes pretty hollow last year, I think it would be better to have less, but more packed.
Melbourne is only about Jo, then they cover Marseille with Jo and Gaël, the main part is about the Davis Cup, of course, a bit of everybody in Indian Well (with Richard and his new coach in particular) and it ends with the first match in Sunrise. It's pretty even, they show the 4 guys more or less equally.

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

Spoilers about the s02e01 Musketeers here:


There is a segment where Monfils is trying to interview shy Benneteau before their match. Also, they filmed some of the shampooing session of Gachassin (is this right?) after the win over Germany. I would have liked to see more of that, nothing like a grown man in a suit getting lathered up in a locker room shower by other grown men, hilarious. There is also a little interview with Gasquet's new Argentinian (?) coach in french. He speaks french like me! There is some Simon/Monfils love during davis cup, I'm beginning to believe these two are secretly raising a love child in some swiss town in the Alps. May I also please say Gasquet's hair is looking spectacular at times and he is briefly filmed while weight training his upper body: good effort.

Thank you Truc, as always and I hope everyone else enjoys it, I was able watch through the link by the way.

Perfect summary!

It's great for the show that half of the guys have foreign coaches now, it makes things much easier for their non-French fans. (And you don't miss much if you don't understand Tulasne, he's always just drooling over his beloved Gillou.)
I think the episode is quite easy to follow if you don't speak French this time, not too many long interviews. The love story between Gilles and Gaël doesn't need words.

Oh boy, they should be careful, it doesn't need much for a rumour to start and grow I can't wait for the download to finish now. Thanks a lot for uploading it

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

Guys...
Upon watching the episode a second time on a larger screen with my glasses on, I regret to inform you that the footage of the blondie lifting weights for a few seconds in fact belongs to Benneteau; not Gasquet Sorry for any premature enthusiasm I might have caused.
Also, Djokovic makes yet another appearance in the series quoting The Godfather.

Thanks for the video, it was fast reaction from canal to put on its website...
If it continues, we will need to call the 5 musketeers with one serbian new member
Djokovic appears in the last 3 episodes and looks to enjoy it

Thanks so much for the summary & Fran for uploading it!

What does Jo say in the camera at about 8 minutes?
