Re: Davis Cup 2010: Vamos Franciaaaaaa...

I would have a idea, not sure it's a great idea

"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".

Re: Davis Cup 2010: Vamos Franciaaaaaa...

Richard is no more playing doubles on the tour this year that's quite a problem and their last association with Mika hasn't been great but it looks like it could be the choice of Forget. Jeremy has correct result in doubles lately he could be the best choice but he never play with Mika . Jo is out for doubles ?

It gives Richard, Gael, Mika, Jeremy and for the alternate gilles or Arno.

Re: Davis Cup 2010: Vamos Franciaaaaaa...

I wonder if Gilles has made himself available or hasn't because of the baby.

I guess we will find out tomorrow.

Re: Davis Cup 2010: Vamos Franciaaaaaa...

Sad news about Benneteau! He and Mika were preparing for this all year. They really seemed to click as a team and Benny seemed to love it.

Wonder if Simon is available? But Richard or Jeremy are the only options for dubs and last time Richard and Mika didn't seem to "gel" very well. Whatever happened to Clement and Llodra (or should I not even ask)?

What a shame that once again so many options seem to be disappearing for France.

Re: Davis Cup 2010: Vamos Franciaaaaaa...

With Julien out, the doubles really gets a problem. I read on WLT that Forget is going to delay the announcement, that is an indication to me that he is considering Clément who by the way played very well against Fish. And he seems fit, he did not fade in that fifth set.

But in my view the French should not put their only hope on the doubles and think that Nalbandian is invincible. Nobody is, though he obviuosly is a special DC animal. And giving up those matches right from the beginning seems wrong to me.

Richard will definitely be called. Who else for the singles? Simon? I like Gilles, but I am not convinced about his form, Chardy - much too streaky and you can't give him so much responsibility in a DC debut.

There is also the question about Llodra's condition. His retirement with feeling dizzy because of too many anti-inflammatories is rather worrying.

Re: Davis Cup 2010: Vamos Franciaaaaaa...

In a good day Gael can beat Nalby and for doubles he can try some combinations during the week.

Re: Davis Cup 2010: Vamos Franciaaaaaa...

No surprises, but what will this mean for the doubles?

Gaël Monfils, Richard Gasquet, Michaël Llodra et Gilles Simon ont été appelés pour disputer à Lyon la demi-finale de Coupe Davis contre l'Argentine, du 17 au 19 septembre. Arnaud Clément a été choisi comme cinquième homme par Guy Forget.

Re: Davis Cup 2010: Vamos Franciaaaaaa...

With Forget there is never surprises I was thinking in Jeremy as I believed Gilles would have stay with the baby For doubles it means there is only one choice Mika-Richard Gael and Gilles really suck in doubles They can be a good team even if they don't play together since ages. I'm sure they can beat Schwank-Zeballos then with this double team he could put Gilles as a single player.

Gael-Schwank and Gilles Nalby first day
Mika Richard vs Schwank Zeballos
Gael-Nalby and then players to determined

you've the interview of Forget on the FFT site http://www.fft.fr/coupe-davis/2010/f...ntine/?ID=6548

Can't Forget decide to take Clément in the team and to put Gilles as the fifth man in the incoming days ?

yep. Or maybe switch Richard out if he doesn't do well in practice baring in mind the tie is against Nalbandian.
