Re: Davis Cup 2010: Vamos Franciaaaaaa...

A video where we see Gael during the training http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xes...touche-a_sport and a diaporama of today http://www.leprogres.fr/fr/galerie-p...0-07b1d672188c

It looks like he just strained his ankle, they are not too worried about that as we can see he can walk.

Re: Davis Cup 2010: Vamos Franciaaaaaa...

According to http://www.welovetennis.fr/coupe-dav...l-entrainement Richard won a practise set against Gael 7-6 (1) and lead 5-3 in the second before they had to stop when the Argies arrived.

Another post on WLT says, that Gael's movement looked normal.

Re: Davis Cup 2010: Vamos Franciaaaaaa...

yes he seems OK but find again a way to fall today, he's crazy.




The surface is maybe less fast than in Toulon and for the moment i'm lost to tell who will be the 2 single players on friday. Of course Gael is 99% sure but then i have no idea Gilles seems very confident, Richard wins his training matches and it's the best surface of Mika, tough to bet on the right guy Forget says he will take his decision tomorrow.

Re: Davis Cup 2010: Vamos Franciaaaaaa...

Those press conferences always look so exciting!

Tough choices for Forget. From reports it sounds like they really are trying to figure out the line up. Llodra/Clement seems like the obvious BUT if Mika plays singles because it is his best surface as Forget said, could he play 3 matches with what seems to be some sort of injury since USO? Maybe it's Gael and Mika for singles and Clement/Gasquet for doubles?? They did practice together, but so did a lot of other people. Will be interesting to find out. and then it can still change.

Gael posted o pic of the dinner on his twitter



According lequipe Monaco could be prefered to Schwank in singles so he would be the number one in the team and we could start with a Nalby/Gael For our second singles it looks like the choice is not yet done like for doubles. Mika trains more in single than in double he looks for a single spot like the others.

Funny how everyone is making a case for himself, apart from Richard and Gael of course, who is certain to play in singles.

Re: Davis Cup 2010: Vamos Franciaaaaaa...

Considering the surface, I think Llodra is the best Frenchman at the moment, so I think he should play at least one singles match. He can beat Nalbandian with his attacking play.

BTW, only 4 players are allowed in the team, no? There are 5 now...

Is this official or your personal guess?
