Re: US Open 2010: Which Frenchman will go deeper in draw

I'd say Monfils / Benneteau, but I saw the draw just 2 sec...

"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".

Llodra vs Berdych, not Gulbis.


Looking at the draw, Ritchie has the best chance to get to second week. Gael's too unpredictable, he can do well if he's head's in it.

Re: US Open 2010: Which Frenchman will go deeper in draw

I think Gasquet, Simon or Bennet should be the best of our french team - Gaêl could be very dangerous but he's so irregular

and if Arno & Mika can play their match of the year

Clément * Paire * Gasquet
Djokovic * Mahut * Llodra * Tsonga * Dimitrov * Chardy * Simon * Federer

Re: US Open 2010: Which Frenchman will go deeper in draw

Bennet and Gael have the best draw to go deep and Richard can have some hopes like Simon if he finds his confidence. Mika can still have the draw of Isner if he withdraw before the first OOP as far I understand and the draw of Isner is really nice so Mika could do something. For the others first round or second round exit i would say.

Oustanding performances from the Frenchies so far and a huge number of surprise wins. Gael, Clément, Mathieu, Paire, Manarino in five sets!

Re: US Open 2010: Which Frenchman will go deeper in draw

I hope it will be Mika, he deserves a great result in GS (Bennet too but I prefer Mika's game )

So Arno & Mika played their match of the year Allez les gars !

Clément * Paire * Gasquet
Djokovic * Mahut * Llodra * Tsonga * Dimitrov * Chardy * Simon * Federer
