Articles, videos, news... about French tennis

We said last time it would be good to have a general thread for things which don't fit in one player forum in particular.

I see the "New Musketeers" video is online:
http://player.canalplus.fr/#/219646

There were also a lot of links posted in the player forums lately, similar videos about Seb, Arnaud, Mika, Fabrice & Co. 2 years ago, the doc about the Mouratoglou Academy, etc.

What does Richard say in the car after the defeat against Gonzo? A cat, putain? But what before?

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

Thanks a lot, this is pretty good. it's also amusing to hear radiohead and the cure in the background. i like the the opening tune, as well.
i don't really get what richard says about the Gonzo match after "il n'a pas de nana." Something about "une chatte?"
Jo's present to his entraineur is hilarious! And he even tries it on!
Also, are the photos of gilles in old fashioned vest and slacks out yet?
Merci beaucoup!

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

What does Gillou say in the press conference after the photo session with Gael at the AO with the French flag (05.33) ? I'm guessing it's about kissing

He says: "Il a pas de de nana, ou il serait cocu. Il a une chatte, putain!"
The first part means that Gonzo has no girlfriend, or else she would cheat on him (that's a popular belief, you can either be lucky in life or have a great love life, it's not possible to have both at the same time = Gonzo must have a really poor love life to be so lucky in tennis).

And Xavier explained the second part very well in the Monfils thread the other day:

"Chatte" means "pussy".

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

Ok, everyone under 18, now cover your eyes because what Richie says in the car after the Gonzo match is teeeeeerribly vulgar

"Il a pas de nana, sinon il serait cocu." roughly translated as "he doesn't have a gf, or else he'd be a cuckold" cuckold in my dictionnary is the word to refer to a man who get cheated on by his gf, please correct me if I'm wrong. In French to be as lucky as a cocu means to have a lot of luck, since we say that when you're unlucky in love, you're lucky everywhere else. So Richie means that if Gonzo had had a gf, he'd be a cocu

And the worse part comes now, as Xavier said in the Gaël thread, "Il a une chatte" is just an atrociously vulgar way to say "he was so damn lucky" (chatte is a very vulgar way to refer to the sex of a woman, I won't dare to speak twice the english translation, I already did once )



Btw I'm in love with the Gaël/Gillou groping/kissing action Leslee

No, that part is OK, but I had to think of you during the sequence with the flag because Gilles asks Gaël if he can grope him behind under the flag.
The level is not always very high, to put it mildly. It's definitely a different style than "Dans l'intimité des bleus" with Fabrice and Seb 2 years ago.

And then he explains during the press conference the story when they were kids, we already talked about it in Gilles' forum, Gaël always wanted to play against him, Gilles was 2 years older, so Gaël got a beatdown everytime, but he always came back and said "hey, let's play again, this time I know how to beat you!" and Gilles crushed him again.

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

If you want to hear better French ^^, I rather recommend the videos from 2007 about Seb, Fabrice, etc. You can still download them here:
http://www.soccers.fr/index.php?showtopic=83242
But I don't know who is in which part - has anybody downloaded them and can tell us?


Edit: rather download Xavier's files here:

But it is no suprise that I did not understand it, one does not learn these essentials in language courses.

Thanks to all translators.
