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

Yes, a young cow used for corridas (I think they use cows instead of bulls in the South of France for this kind of stuff, that's why he says "vachette").
Your dictionary is right with the "leather" thing, though ("cuir vachette"), that meaning is more common.

(I didn't want to explain it further in my post last time before people watch it, the whole thing starts with Markus saying he wants Richard to be an animal on the court, if I remember well. And then he compares Richard with a kitten, it's quite cute how he says that. Richard sees himself as a "small corrida cow".)

They use cows only in the Provence region, which is no real corrida, but removing a cordel from the horns of a cow, they call it "courses camarguaises". It is not bloody at all. In Languedoc-Roussillon where Richard comes from, the corridas are "real". E.g. Béziers has a classical arena. I am an expert on this, Richard obvioulsy not.

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

Are they going to ask the entire French tennis about the World Cup BS? Not one question about tennis today in the post-match interviews of Monfils and Bartoli on the tournament website:

Thanks truc. Nothing special in their answer. I don't agree with them, but I'm not surprised, they defend anelka..

"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".

No more because after the last episode 2 season 2, frenchies were not very good, so less interest for "intérieur sport" ; I think that's your question, no/"intérieur sport" ?

I assume it was today, the video is available this evening on the link already given above http://www.canalplus.fr/c-sport/c-te...quetaires.html. It deals with USO, the rehab of Jo and the DC. I think it remains one episode for all the end of the season.

According WLT The french federation is doinf his own movie about DC http://www.welovetennis.fr/insolites...-les-bleus-bis
