Guillaume Rufin

Am I missing something or he hasn't got a thread of his own ?

I heard about him on the junior tour especially in the french championship that he won 2 times and with Paire they looked very promising. It seems to be true today with their good showing in RG.

I learned more about him in l'équipe of today. He seems to be quite a funny guy, thoughtless but also smart (good student at least). The part that cracks me up is when his coach says he spent the whole sunday before his match in a music store testing every guitar instead of taking some rest. Gotta love that


Next match against Melzer which 'll be hard since it's hardly the kind of game he must be used to play.

Come on Guillaume

Ah, quelqu'un se dévoue enfin!

The "Professor Calculus" thing is already getting a bit old, but it's true he seems to be a funny guy. Dominguez compared his game with the Swedes à la Magnus Larsson the other day and I could see it too, simple and effective groundstrokes, solid serve...

Re: Guillaume Rufin

Daniela posted a video of him in Gaël's forum the other day:

There also was a video about him on the FFT website some time ago, that's how I became aware of him:

Re: Guillaume Rufin

I was watching again the FFT video I posted last time and he says in it he has a soft spot for grass.
He's very cool on the court, never loses his composure, it's one of his main qualities.

Re: Guillaume Rufin

BTW for fans of music, his coach offered him "after the gold rush" by Neil Young after his win. Would have loved a coach like that to get some motivation training in some cold winter when I was a youngster.
